Puppy Manners ( Level 1)


Our puppy classes are for puppies between 8 and 16 weeks
at the start of the class. This is the ideal time to start your dog's education of on the right foot. Different from Puppy Pre-School, this is a training class that focuses on teaching puppies in the way they learn best. We focus on teaching the behaviors owners tell us they want most, including:
  • Come when called
  • Sit on command
  • Lie down on command
  • Stay when told
  • Walk without pulling on leash
  • Greet people without jumping up on them
  • Calm, quiet behavior
  • And more
More than that, this class teaches you how to teach your dog - not just in a "formal" training session, but whenever you're interacting with him. If your puppy is awake, your puppy is learning. We want to help you teach your puppy what you want him to learn. We want to help you have the dog of your dreams.

Our Puppy Class program introduces the fundamentals
of training to both your puppy and to you! You'll receive a copy of The New Clicker Training Manual(s) by Gail Fisher, a clicker and training treats. All classes progress upward to help you achieve the level of manners and training that suits your needs as your puppy matures. Check out our class schedule for details on upcoming classes, (but please contact us to check on potential scheduling changes).

We're confident our training program can meet your needs with your puppy, but if you're not sure if this class is what you're looking for, give us a call, or come and watch one of our classes to help you decide.
