Do you have a new puppy that you want to start off on the right paw? Puppy Basics is all about setting your puppy up with a solid foundation for life. You can teach a dog new tricks their whole life long, but with a puppy you get ONE single chance to make a good first impression.
Puppy Basics is about creating a positive outlook for your new puppy. You will learn how to gently introduce new things and especially how to prevent common problems such as separation anxiety and resource guarding. You will learn about socialization for a companion dog in a human world.
Meanwhile, you will learn basic life-skills that all good dogs should know such as coming when you call their name, sits and downs, and the foundation skills for walking on a loose leash.
Puppy basics is a blended delivery with 6 weeks of online classes, 6 conference calls for discussions and questions, and 3 live face to face classes. The training room is large and can accommodate our COVID distancing needs.
This blended delivery means that puppy owners are not being chewed on while they try to listen to the trainers talking. Having the lessons available online means they can be repeated as often as the owner wishes on their own schedule. The discussions and questions can be deeper and the answers can be fuller when progress isn’t constantly interrupted by bored little creatures with sharp little teeth!
