CLASS OFFERINGS

Foundation Program

We have spent years developing and fine-tuning our training programs and simplified them into easy-to-understand tracks based on the age of your dog. Many of the same topics are covered in each level, with adjustments based on age appropriateness of your pet.

OUR APPROACH

Sit. Stay. Come. Holy cow it worked! That feeling is what our foundation curriculum is all about. All four-legged students start with a Level 1 class that includes effective canine communication and proper handling. As your dog graduates into higher levels, we increase The Three Ds–distance, distraction and duration of commands. Along the way, your puppy will gain the skills needed to achieve certification with the American Kennel Club’s S.T.A.R. Puppy and Canine Good Citizen Programs.

Puppy Prodigies: 9 Weeks to 5 Months
Taming the Teen: 5 Months to 1 Year
Mature Manners: 1 Year & Older




Level 1: Speaking Dog

7 Sessions / $210 / Dogs do not attend first session

No matter the age of your dog, our Level 1 class will get you started on the right paw. Your first two sessions will focus on canine communication, proper handling, and getting your dog’s attention; facilitating success as your dog advances through the levels of our core curriculum. Topics that are specific to your dog’s age and developmental period will be addressed. We will use a reward-based method to teach your pet commands such as sit, down, stay, place, leave it and loose leash walking and also discuss prevention and modification for undesirable behaviors such as jumping and inappropriate greetings. Puppy students will have lots of fun during socialization while learning about appropriate play. All puppies under one year of age will receive a S.T.A.R. Puppy Evaluation, a special certification sanctioned by the American Kennel Club. Dogs over one year of age will begin their journey towards becoming a Canine Good Citizen.

Level 2: The Three Ds

6 Sessions / $185

With a solid foundation under your belt, it’s time to apply The Three Ds. We will start to remove lures from each command and replace them with a reward for a job well done. As your dog becomes more proficient, we will apply distance, duration and distraction to the mix. As always, we will discuss how to be a fair pet parent/leader who can guide his dog to success. At the completion of our Level 2 class, your pet will be on his way towards becoming a Canine Good Citizen!

Level 3: Canine Good Citizen

6 Sessions / $185

If you already have a good working relationship with your dog and are ready for more challenges, this class is for you. Expectations will increase, as the skills you and your dog have learned will be applied to a higher level of reliability. We will increase proficiency in basic commands, control in everyday situations and appropriate skills while in public. Upon successful graduation, your dog will be ready to test for his Canine Good Citizen certification.
