Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our in-person group classes are undergoing some changes. Classes will be mostly held at outdoor locations for the duration of summer, and will have online support components. We will have restrictions on how many people can attend classes (one adult person per dog), and masks and other social distancing precautions will be required. If we have another “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order, ALL classes will immediately be transitioned to an online format. Click here for our FAQ page for additional COVID-related information.

We also offer private training and virtual training services if you prefer!

Is your new puppy using you as a chew toy or peeing all over your house? Is your adolescent dog playing keep away or has decided to stop listening to you 99% of the time? Or perhaps they’re an angel but you’ve heard how important early socialization and training is. Besides helping you maintain your sanity, early training and socialization is essential to helping your puppy grow into an enjoyable, well-rounded dog. And it can prevent common behavior problems like fear-based aggression and anxiety later in life.


Our puppy classes are designed to get you through the first year of your puppy’s life with your sanity in tact. We help you prevent behavior problems, learn how to properly socialize your dog, and resolve common puppy issues with minimal stress and drama.

WHY
You’ve probably that heard that socializing your puppy is essential to prevent future behavior problems. But, what does that even mean? How do we ensure that we do it well, and strategically, versus inadvertently traumatizing them? How do we ensure that we are catching early signs of potential issues and preventing bad habits before they arise? That’s a lot of pressure. That’s what we’re here for!

WHAT
This class is focused primarily on working with puppies during their second prime socialization period. They’ll join class between 2-3 months. We’ll also work to prevent common behavior issues that crop up including play biting, house training, etc. from the moment you bring them home.
