This training course is for puppies and young dogs 6 months or older. This is where we start molding your puppy into a confident adaptable young dog. Starting with the skills learned in PUPPYSPEAK, (an equivalent to a puppy kindergarten class), we start with the foundation behaviors that most owners want their dogs to know; what your family, friends and occasional visitors appreciate; and what dog-friendly establishments expect. Topics will include:
- respecting space and setting boundaries
- communicating with your puppy/dog
- learning skills such as SIT, WATCH, COME, DOWN, SIT-STAY, STAY and LEAVE IT
- walking nicely on a leash (loose leash walking)
- controlling impulses
This course will be 6 sessions.
No retractable leashes, please! A 6-foot leash is required, as well as a flat buckle and/or harness.
