skills of your older dog, clicker training is a fun, effective way to

In the beginning level classes, we'll use neat games,
toys and food treats to teach your puppy or dog the behaviors you want. You'll learn the best way to communicate with your individual dog and how to deliver rewards with good placement and timing for maximum learning impact. We'll also talk about how to "read" dog body language, stop unwanted behaviors and how to recognize and promote healthy play between dogs.
Puppy classes are for pups 12 weeks
to 6 months of age.*
Adolescent & Adult classes are
for dogs 6 months and older*
* Please Note: Ages

Puppy Manners 2: The Next Level
For pups under 1 year that have completed the basic class
TBA - Cost: $85.00
In the first class, we started working on fundamental behaviors like Sit, Down and Come. In this fun-filled 5-week class, we’ll take what we learned in the basic class and start applying it to “real-life” situations and scenarios. Each session will introduce multiple exercises revolving around a theme, including:
- Recalls out of dog-dog play & around other distractions
- Stays, Impulse Control & good “door” manners
- Building confidence, attention & focus
- Walking politely on leash in a challenging world
- Play, games & exercise for better manners
We’ll also work on a “handler’s choice” where each person picks a behavior that’s especially important to their team and we develop a plan to address it.
This class is for pups & adolescents under 1 year of age that have attended the basic Puppy 1 class. Space is limited, so register early to guarantee your space! All pups must be current on vaccinations.
