puppy KinderGarten & Puppy foundation

Puppy Kindergarten is for Puppies 12 to 20 weeks old.  This class is 30 minutes long, whereas all of our other classes are 1 hour long.  We shortened this class to compensate for the puppies short attention span and focus ability. 

Reward for offering behaviors to shape foundation

Teaching

 

 

Puppy Foundation works with the dogs natural ability to please us, as well as a reward based system.  In this class, you will work with the instructor on how to shape and mold behaviors that we look for in basic obedience.  We help teach you how to have your dog understand

  • their name

  • sit

  • down

  • come

 

Problem solving is discussed prior to the start of all classes to address issues such as proper house manners, house leash, housebreaking, mouthing verses biting, and active socialization​

This class is open to dogs 4 months or older. If you require something sooner due to mouthing, housebreaking, crating etc. issues, we recommend scheduling a “Puppy Private Lesson”.
