Who should handle the dog? YOU!
Our club and our classes are designed to give you the tools you need to train your dog. Dogs learn at their own speed, and often what they learn depends on their handler. It is imperative that you know your dog, and that he or she learns your style of communication and expectations. We stress consistency, patience, and positive reinforcement in all our classes!
Puppy Kindergarten (KPT):
We welcome all dogs to our classes!
A KPT candidate must be at least 8 weeks old and should be no older than 4 months. Establishing a relationship between you and your puppy is the goal of the class. We will help you and your puppy to learn how to communicate with each other and to behave socially. We will introduce you and your puppy to some basic commands while working on good socialization with various items, people and other dogs. Class time also is used to discuss problems you may incur during this period of adjustment and learning to live with your new puppy.
Our KPT classes are starting all the time with a rolling admission so don't think you have to wait for the next session to start!
Our instructors can test for the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program if you feel your puppy is ready at the end of the session.
