This is the introductory training for dogs that are starting class when they are younger than 5 months of age. The first 5 months are the most important and critical to a puppy’s social development and well being. By seven weeks, the brain has already developed sufficiently to learn new behaviors and receive the full benefit of training. Puppy courses include instruction in socialization, house training, leaving a puppy alone, problem solving, and overall household manners. We work with you to teach your puppy to pay attention, come when called, sit, lay down, stay in place, give/drop things from their mouth, leave things(found “treasures”, cats, etc.)alone, and walk nicely on a leash. You will also learn how to discourage biting, nipping, and jumping on people.
