Puppy Kindergarten

All of our training is reward-based and designed to build and strengthen a relationship between you and your pup that is based on trust and communication.

When you sign up for a SIRIUS Puppy Kindergarten Class, you get a series of 5 live 50 minute sessions (either Online or In-Person) with one of our skilled SIRIUS Puppy Training Instructors in a small group setting.

This will allow you to get personalized feedback on your training and answers to all of your puppy questions through the journey of raising and training your puppy.

As a bonus you also get instant lifetime access to the Essential Puppy Training Course, our most comprehensive online puppy training course to date at no extra cost.

With over 170 videos organized into 5 developmental stages, this $200 course by itself provides an amazing value as well as clear step-by-step instructions to help you maintain your training between Live class.

For the best possible education for your puppy, you should enroll in a Puppy Kindergarten Class that begins when your pup is 8-12 weeks of age, and also enroll in a Puppy Training I Class that begins before your pup reaches 18 weeks of age.
