SUPER PUPPY CLASSES

A six week class designed for puppies under sixteen weeks, this is the most important class you’ll ever take with your dog! We will help you get started off on the right paw with crate training, house training, how to handle mouthing and chewing, and introducing beginning basic commands. Most importantly, there are lots of socialization opportunities and plenty of time for Q&A!

Has your dog learned the basics? Need to practice more with distractions? In the Super Duper Dog class we work on all the exercises you have learned, but make it harder. We also introduce new things such as “go-to-your-bed”, off leash heeling, and down on recall. You can repeat this class as much as you would like as it is different and offers a new challenge every time.
