Want your puppy to grow up into a calm and well behaved adult?

Over the last 8 years we have helped over 10,000 Omaha area puppies learn to become the bestest of dogs; stopping many common problems beore they get a chance to start; nipping, chewing, barking, jumping up, separation anxiety, etc.

Omaha’s best puppy classes feature over 40 commands, all taught with 100% positive based training methods. We end each class with supervised puppy playtime to help the pups develop confidence, social skills and maybe best of all, guarantee you have a tired puppy when you get home!

Omaha Puppy Classes

.
We have 3 class levels (detailed below); Puppy Kindergarten, Elementary and High School. Each class level meets for one hour a week, for 4 consecutive weeks. If you take all 3 classes together as designed (lessons build as your pup gets older), you get 12 weeks that will transform your rowdy puppy into the most amazing adult dog.

We keep classes sizes small and separate puppies by breed size to keep them and ensure you get 1 on 1 time with your instructor every class.

A Puppy Class Testimonial From One of Our 5 Star Reviews on Google

“My puppy Oreo recently graduated from the puppy high school class. We took all three levels of classes offered and would recommend to any person who needs puppy training. I love the fact that they use positive reinforcement. My pup went from being wild and jumping at everybody to a nice well behaved puppy.”

– Brad Maxwell

Gibson Rides Rory - Omaha Puppy Classes

Our weekly classes are fun, informative and give you the tools to ensure your pup grows up to be all they can be. Unlike other local classes, out instructors go through months of training before they start leading classes. We have the most experinced puppy instructors in the midwest. We do such a good job, very few of our puppy class graduates need in home help later!

Exclusives to Our Puppy Classes (Not available anywhere else)
• Emails sent after class with videos of each lesson like this one on potty training.
• Access to our private facebook group with thousands of puppies to set up play dates outside of class.

For people who want to really set their pup up for success, we offer a Puppy Head Start option. This combines puppy class with a one-hour in home visit from your instructor to give you a crash course on all the most important tips and secrets to having a puppy.

Puppy Vaccinations – We require all our students to have started getting their puppy shots before classes start, but the shots dont need to be complete. Due to the importance of early socialization, the American Society of Veternary Behaviorists released a statment saying they no longer recommend waiting until all the shots are complete to start puppy classes.
