Early puppy training is as easy as it is enjoyable. Much more challenging though, is to ensure that your puppy maintains bite inhibition, remains socialized and friendly to other dogs and people, and continues to pay heed to your instructions while working through adolescence. Training focuses on proofing verbal control without the need for food lures or rewards, or any other training tools. Exercises include distance sits in play (for the home, yard, dog parks and off-leash walks), settle down, rock-solid stays, and both off-leash and on-leash walking and heeling. Puppy 2 will help you teach your adolescent pup to be calm, attentive and responsive and to respond quickly, willingly and happily, especially when distracted, off-leash, and at a distance.

Class fee

Registration Fee: $250 for 5 sessions; each session is approximately 45 minutes.

To be eligible for the discount, you must pay/enroll for Puppy Training II before your Puppy Training I class graduates. If you are enrolling online and the website does not apply the discount automatically, please send us an email at: admin@siriuspup.com.

WHAT TO BRING TO CLASS

Proof of vaccinations is required at the first session. Proof of vaccines on paper is preferred. For our Puppy II classes, we require the rabies vaccine and up-to-date DHLPP/DHPP vaccines.

Have your dog/puppy wear a flat, buckle/snap collar, with a 6' leash. “Flexi” retractable leashes are not appropriate for class. No noose or collars that tighten please. Harnesses are allowed in classes for walking exercises, but please also bring a flat collar for use during off leash play. The least amount of "gear" on during puppy play the better!

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.

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.
