Positive Reinforcement Training 

Imagine how wonderful it would be if Max would just stop jumping on everyone!  Do you wish it was actually fun to walk Bella when you come home from work?  "This new puppy is nipping the kids and chewing everything in sight!"
If any of this sounds familiar, we are here to help!

Positive Reinforcement training is science-based and effective!
  We will not use any choke chains, prong collars or shock/remote collars.
 We will have clickers available for you, as well as homework handouts and progress reports.

Puppy Start Right    (8-20 weeks of age) 

Puppy classes are an integral part of helping you and your dog develop a lasting, harmonious relationship.  The effort you put into this relationship now will guide your dog for rest of his life.  We will use only positive, science-based methods to teach your pup the basics, while having fun at the same time!  This period of your puppy's life is critical for socialization, so for each class you register for, we will include a one-hour Puppy Socialization class.  Join us and get your pup started off right!

Basic Foundations    (20 weeks and older)

Looking for positive-reinforcement training for your dog? Many people adopt adult dogs from shelters or rescue groups and are looking for guidance on the basics with their new, four-legged household member.  We will use only force-free methods to help you with this process.  We will concentrate on Focus, Sit, Sit/Stay, Down, Down/Stay, Loose Leash Walking, and Recall.  We will also be happy to answer questions concerning house training, jumping, chewing and other common dog behaviors.

Puppy Socialization
​Because socialization with other pups and humans is critical in the development of a young puppy, we offer a Puppy Socialization hour every other Tuesday from 7-8:00 p.m.  All puppies need to become familiar with new people, places and things in a safe setting. All pups must be up-to-date on their vaccinations and it is wise to ask your vet for approval.  If your pup is signed up for  lessons with me, these Puppy Socialization are included. If not, the cost is below.

Cost:  $20 per session

Value Package:  $60 for a 4-session punch card

Fitness and Fun

Are you looking for a fun-filled way to exercise with your dog? Why not register and join others for some fun and games!  Each Friday evening from 7-8:00 p.m., we learn new skills right along with our dogs, including those used in agility, FitPAWS and Rally Obedience. Learning to use ramps, tunnels, peanuts and other challenging items helps your dog build confidence and strength, all in the name of fun!
