The Puppy Introduction is Required before starting either Head Start or Kinder Pup.
This one hour session is our way of setting you up for success before entering one of the puppy classes! While your puppy stays home to snooze, you will be busy learning how to train him/her. Think of it as taking a driver's ed. class before getting behind the wheel. In this case, we focus on your training skills before holding the leash. And there will be homework to set your puppy up for success.
New Clients: You will register for two classes at the same time:
Returning Puppy Clients: You do not need to take the Puppy Introduction again.
We've designed our puppy curriculum to take advantage of the short-lived socialization stage. Our goal is to help you raise a Well Socialized, Friendly Adult Dog!
The puppy classes are Rolling Admission.

This class meets at local parks to take walks in a real life context. We will focus on skills needed to walk in public and around distractions. It can be one of the greatest pleasures of having a dog. But, if your dog pulls on the leash, then the walk is neither healthy for your dog nor relaxing for you.

This course lays the foundations to training your dog in increasingly challenging real-life contexts. You will train your dog obedience skills that include coming when called, walking nicely on leash, polite greetings, sit, down, stay, leave it, and more!
Missed Class Policy for Rolling Admissions:
Your registration fee guarantees you a spot for six weeks. If you miss one of those weeks, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to make up the missed class. That decision is made based on enrollment. If there is an available spot after your six weeks, you are more than welcome to make up a missed class the week following your original graduation date. But if our enrollment is full, that will not be possible.
For Graduates of Real Life Manners
Walk away with a dog your friends, family and neighbors will envy. Polish the skills you and your companion started learning in Real Life Manners. Prepare for the AKC Canine Good Citizen test.
This CGC program is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. Those dogs who pass the 10-step test on the last night of class will be certified by the American Kennel Club as a Canine Good Citizen.
"Thanks for a great class. We have learned so much and wish we would have done it years ago with the older dogs. The young dogs are better behaved thanks to your class!"
