Beginner Puppy Training

Puppy Training for Beginners

This dog training class focuses on giving you the basics to train your dog through positive reinforcement. Focus is on teaching basic dog obedience commands such as sit, down, stay (sit and down), recall or “come”, loose-leash walking, waiting at the door, off, and “leave-it” utilizing treats and praise to help the dogs learn in the fastest and most positive way. If you and your pet attend classes and practice 15 minutes per day at home, your dog should be proficient at basic commands within six weeks.

The methods used in this class include the use of treats, praise and fun to help the dogs (and owners) learn in the fastest and most positive way possible. Mild corrections are used, but most students have their dogs on regular buckle collars. If there is a better management tool for your particular situation, we will suggest it.
