Puppy I is so much fun and hugely educational! Classes focus on puppy biting, socialization with other dogs and people (especially children men and strangers), calming and handling, attention, basic obedience skills (come, sit, down, stand, stay, heel and walk on leash) and household manners (crate training, toilet training and chew toy training).

Our expert instructors will teach you how to use food in training without it becoming a bribe so that your puppy responds reliably whether you have food or not.

Learn how to improve your puppy's focus, speed of recall and length of stays off-leash, at a distance and when distracted. Learn how to introduce your puppy to people, places, dogs and new situations so that they thoroughly enjoy the company of all kinds of folks, especially children, men and strangers.

Learn how to teach your puppy to play Fetch and Tug and to use these games as rewards in training.

THE COMPLETE PUPPY COURSE

If your puppy is under 12 weeks old, it is highly recommend that you take Puppy Kindergarten before Puppy 1, or in tandem. It is not required but it will provide you with best puppy training experience possible, especially if you follow Puppy 1 with Puppy 2. Save money by registering for these classes together.

WHAT TO BRING TO CLASS

Proof of vaccination is required at the first class. Please bring proof of both your first and second vaccines. We prefer proof to be on paper. This is a legal requirement and your dog will not be allowed to participate until proof has been furnished.

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 puppy 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.

REQUIREMENTS

Requirements: 

Age: 12-18 weeks of age at the start date of class. If your puppy is older than 18 weeks, Dog Training I is the appropriate class.

Vaccine: First two rounds of DHLPP or DHPP. The second round must have been administered after 8 weeks of age, but at least 7 days prior to the first session of class. Please note: Our Oakland West location has an additional vaccine requirement for Bordetella. We strongly recommend this additional vaccine if your class is held in any canine facility, but is only required in Oakland West.
