Additional skills taught include; sit, watch me (eye contact/attention), hand target (great for controlling your dog with clarity and ease), follow the leader, and more. This class is 5 sessions total, and each session meets approximately 50 minutes each week.

Registration Fee: $200 for 5 sessions

WHAT TO BRING TO CLASS

Proof of rabies vaccine and up-to-date DHLPP/DHPP are required. We strongly prefer proof of vaccines on paper (with vaccine date mentioned) versus the rabies tag on collar. Please note: Our Oakland West location also requires proof of Bordetella vaccination.

Have your dog wear a flat, buckle/snap collar – no harnesses or training collars that tighten. Please have your pooch on a 6’ leash. “Flexi” leashes are not appropriate for class.

Don’t feed your dog right before class. Instead, bring their kibble to class in a ziploc bag for use as lures and rewards while training. Also bring a few extra-tasty treats to reward your pup for their best performances. Make sure your treats are in small, bite-sized pieces that won’t fill your pup up or take long for them to eat.

We require at least one adult per enrolled puppy. We encourage the whole family attend the class together but if children are three years or younger, a second adult must be present.
