Puppy Class is a four-week class for puppies eight to sixteen weeks of age. This class teaches you how to solve basic puppy problems such as chewing, biting and housebreaking, while also introducing crate training, coming when called and walking on a loose leash. Puppy class also helps socialize your puppy and introduces obedience training in a fun and positive way.
This is an eight-week class for puppies or adult dogs four months of age or older. This class teaches basic obedience commands such as come, sit, down and stay as well as teaching house manners.
