EIGHT WEEK GROUP PUPPY CLASS

The 8 week puppy class is designed to teach you an effective way of communicating to your puppy or young dog that will have life long results. We use the same communication system adopted by elite dog trainers, sport dog trainers, police dog trainers, scent detection trainers, and people looking to get their puppy a good foundation of obedience. We’ll use your dogs motivation for food, balls, and tug toys to help this communication system work best for you and your puppy or young dog.

This communication system is used to teach:

  • Sit
  • Down
  • Heel
  • Recall(come back when called)
  • Place command
  • Loose leash walking
  • And address any other problem behaviors your puppy might have

At the end of 6 weeks we will evaluate your progress to see if you are ready for the Intermediate Obedience class.

Recommended age: 4.5-11 months old.
