Service Description

Prerequisites for entering Level 1 manners classes: None. A private lesson is strongly recommended for dogs over 6 months of age. Dogs that are reactive, overly fearful or bark at people or dogs, must start with a private lesson to ensure they will be able to benefit of a group class. Duration: Once per week for 6 weeks ( we do not meet on Statutory Holidays) It is a life skill for your young dog to learn and develop in a stimulating environment such as our training centre, as it will help create a more attentive and optimistic dog. Our puppy class will set you up for success in future training and everything you do with your dogs over the course of their lives. A few of the critical lessons we cover: Foundation behaviours including: sit, down, stay, recall and loose leash walking Building focus for owners, even around distractions. An essential skill to learn right away! Safe and appropriate socialization techniques with people, children and other dogs Learn how to properly and effectively play with your dog and incorporate it into your training Training is based on your puppy’s individual personality. We’ll help you bring the best out of your puppy and start you on the path you are taking together for the next 10+ years! All classes come with weekly homework to guide you through your home practice.
