Schedule for Nov Classes!!

All classes will be offered for 5 consecutive Sunday afternoons Nov 12-Dec 17 (No class Sunday Dec 3rd)

BASIC SKILLS CLASSES

*For the infants–Puppy I (10 weeks-16 weeks) 1:15-2:15PM

*For the toddlers–Puppy II (16 weeks-24 weeks) 2:30-3:30PM

Have a new addition to your family?  All our puppy classes are now taught completely off leash!  Our goals are to teach bite inhibition through puppy play sessions and dog-dog socialization, teach puppies to enjoy interacting with and being handled by people, especially children, men and strangers, and teach reliable off-leash obedience, so puppies promptly and willing respond to verbal commands even when distracted.  Our puppy classes are based on age, not ability, to ensure proper early socialization.  Puppies should be the age listed above by the start of the second week of class. $95 (Discounts available if signing up for consecutive puppy classes (taking one now and one next session–see details on the registration page)

*For the Adolescents and Young Dogs–Adolescent Class (6 months-2 years) 5-6PM

Our adolescent class teaches you to train your dog in  basic obedience, but we apply this to real life scenarios for real life success! This course is designed to bring out the best in your dog by providing a direction for all that energy.  If you want to work on your dog’s awareness and improve its focus on you this is your class! We will work on your dog’s ability to calmly pass by other dogs and people and improve its  ability to cope with excitement in its environment all while providing you with valuable training techniques to use at home and out about town. $95

SPORT and SPECIALTY CLASSES

(A puppy or adolescent class required before participation in any upper level class)

 Treibball Mixed Levels 3:45-4:45PM

If you have a dog that loves to be busy this is the class for you! This fast paced class focuses on helping your dog to respond to you at a distance! Using verbal and hand cues your dog will increase in his focus each week as the class progresses.  Treibball is also known as urban herding as your dog will learn the cues used by stock dogs to use sheep as they learn to move large balls (urban sheep!) around the room using distance cues. $85 (This class will be taught by Tracey Reinfree)

  Scent Class Mixed Levels 11:30AM-1PM

Your dog only needs its nose for this class!  This instinct based class will teach you how to trust your dog in finding a scent in a hidden location!  This is a great first class for more timid dogs as it helps them build confidence!  For dogs who are a bit more boisterous it helps them to focus on the task at hand.  Come and see for yourself what all the fun is about! $85 (This class will be taught by AKC Certified Trainer Gail Landon)

Our next session of classes will begin Jan 21st!
