Puppy Training I

For puppies 12-18 weeks old. $200 for 5 weekly 50 minute sessions.

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.

We strongly recommend this additional vaccine if your class is held in any canine facility, but is only required in Oakland West.

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.
