Training a puppy can be tough–we can help!

Jump start your puppy’s training with our foundation puppy training classes designed to help your puppy get the full understanding of proper positions and commands that he/she will need for future obedience training.

Our puppy classes utilize praise-based teaching along with treats and a handled harness to reward and teach your puppy without the stress of correction techniques. Puppies do not come into the world knowing what we expect from them; we must show them.  Our positive enforcement training makes learning not only fun but also entertaining and keeps them coming back for more.

The Puppy Academy goes beyond just command training: we also work on instilling proper manners such as sitting/waiting patiently for feedings, pausing politely before going in and out doors and properly greeting people.  We emphasize puppy socialization with children and other animals, housebreaking and respectable in-home behavior.  Sign-up for local puppy training classes today!
