We liked your easy going, caring and patient approach to teaching our dogs, as well as the owners. You made it fun for both of us. -- Mary Jane Willard, Friendswood

PUPPY KINDERGARTEN

Puppy Kindergarten is for dogs 12 to 26 weeks of age who have started their parvo shot series. Your puppy's first 6 months is his most formative period, making it the best time to begin training. Your vet will tell you that a trained puppy is unlikely to develop adult problems of fear biting, excessive barking or aggressiveness.

BEGINNERS

Beginners is for dogs 6 months and older who are just starting their training. Sometimes older dogs have developed unwanted behaviors. The good news is that dogs are never too old to learn how to behave properly.

IN BOTH PUPPY KINDERGARTEN & BEGINNERS:

Every class begins with a 10 minute socialization period for the dogs. (Socialization is essential to a dog's development.) Then, we'll teach your dog:

  • COME
  • SIT
  • DOWN
  • STAND
  • STAYS
  • HEELING (walking beside you on a loose leash and sitting every time you stop)
  • RETRIEVING
  • LEADERSHIP EXS. (Leadership Exercises teach your dog where he belongs in your family pack.)

Your instructor will take time during every class to address any behavior problems you are having. No need for additional classes or extra fees for specific problems. We'll answer your questions about nipping, jumping, barking, housebreaking, crate training, chewing, digging, bolting out doors, bringing home a new baby or puppy, fearfulness, exercise, travel, counter surfing, separation anxiety and so on!

Both Puppy Kindergarten and Beginners meet for 1 hour per week for 7 weeks. The cost is $250.
