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!

SUPER DOG CLASSES

Come! Learn how to be your dog’s trainer! This class is designed for all dogs over four months with little or no training. Basic commands such as Attention, Stays, and Recall are taught.

CONTINUING EDUCATION & SUPPLEMENTAL CLASSES

 Designed to challenge dogs and keep them learning.

SUPER DUPER DOG CLASSES

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.

SUPER KIDS & DOGS!

A four week class just for kids and their dogs! Shannon Lowe, kid expert, and Whitney Doremus, dog expert, make this a fun and educational class for both species. $100 for four weeks, includes your dog’s membership to VDC.

SUPPER PUP AND SUPPER DOG!

Wish your dog had better “table” manners just in time for Thanksgiving? Worried your large family gathering will overwhelm your new puppy?  Then these are the classes for you. Lucy Weaver will offer these special four week supplemental courses to help get your puppy or older dog ready to take on Thanksgiving like a boss (or like a super well mannered pooch!).

CANINE GOOD CITIZEN

AKC’s Canine Good Citizen® (CGC) Program is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen® is a program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club and can also add it as a title.

SUPER STUNT DOG

You and your dog will have a blast teaching tricks and fun pet agility with Whitney, includes your dog’s membership to VDC.(Not for those serious about agility and competition) 

SUPER FUN WITH ONE JUMP

Learn pre-agility skills using one jump.  Dogs will learn how to offer to jump on their own, handlers will learn how to connect and have a conversation with their dogs by using techniques such as sends, front and rear crosses and wraps.  It is not necessary to want to continue with an agility class or to compete, but if you do this class will get you ready for agility.  These skills are a fun way to learn to be a ‘team’ with your best friend.

SUPER SUMMER DOG

The Super popular Super Summer Dog Class is back and this year it is structured
with even more flexibility to fit into your busy summer!

Vermont Summers can be quite hectic. They are also the best time of the year to get our dogs out and about. We recognize that it can be challenging to fit a class into your schedule this time of year, but there is nothing like having a regular class to keep you motivated to work on your training skills. Vermont Dog Club has a solution for you! The Super Summer Dog class will meet every Wednesday at 6:30 in a different location within Chittenden County. The class will not build on skills but will rather be a venue to practice your current skills in a public setting. This way you can attend any eight classes throughout the summer without missing anything. $200 for up to 8 sessions of your choice or $300 for 9 – 16 sessions. Class comes with a membership to the club for the whole summer.
