PUPPY TRAINING I CURRICULUM

Housetraining: (Potty Training, Chew Toy Training, Crate Training) So your pup learns how to behave at home when left unsupervised and settle down quietly when you want them to.

Confidence Training: (Socialization, Desensitization, Handling, Resolving Phobias)So your pup learns to enjoy being held and handled and does not become fearful, reactive, or aggressive towards any people, animals, or other stimuli.

Lure Reward Training: (Sit, Down, Stand, Come, Follow, Go To Your Bed, Settle Down, Off, Take It, Thank You, Fetch, Tug and More…) So your pup learns to perform useful behaviors on cue, reliably, and promptly so you can have fun together and redirect your pup away from unwanted behaviors.

Requirements: 

Age: On the start date of class, pups must be between 12-18 weeks (85-126 days) old.

Vaccine: Proof of two DHLPP or DHPP vaccinations given 2-3 weeks apart -- both vaccines administered after 8 weeks of age and the second vaccination given at least 5 days prior to the start-date of class.

Covid Protocols: Some of our locations require proof of vaccinations and/or masking. We respectfully request that you come to class prepared to comply with facility protocols for the comfort and safety of all.

For puppies under 8 months old. This class is $250 for 5 sessions total. Each session is approximately 50 minutes and takes place in-person.

PUPPY TRAINING II CURRICULUM

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 II 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.

When you sign up for an In-Person Puppy Training II class, you get a series of 5 in-person classes with a skilled SIRIUS Puppy Training Instructor who will guide you and a handful of classmates through the journey of raising and training your puppies. 

You will get an opportunity to celebrate and solidify your pup’s training in an exciting and distracting environment that is also safe and secure, while simultaneously socializing your pup to new people and puppies. Your instructor will work directly with you and your pup to help you fine-tune your technique and improve your timing and positioning.

As a SIRIUS Puppy Training student you should already have lifetime access to the Essential Puppy Training Course, the most comprehensive online puppy training program in the world, included at no extra cost. With over 170 videos organized into 5 developmental stages, this course sells for $200 by itself and provides clear step-by-step instructions and demonstrations of all the essential exercises.

Prerequisite: Must have completed a SIRIUS Puppy Training I within the last 4 months.

Age: Under 8 months old.

Vaccine: Proof of rabies vaccine and up-to-date DHLPP/DHPP are required.
