Advanced Puppy Program

Puppy is enrolled for six weeks for $150.


Classes are taught 3 times a week and puppies may come to class 3 times a week!   The more training your puppy gets during their adolescence the better! 


True fact: canine brains (limbic system and prefrontal cortex) are not fully formed until around 18 months old so during adolescence they struggle with impulse control.  Training gives them the structure they need to help them through this crazy stage.


Puppies in this class are typically  5 months old and older.  Puppies less than 24 months old are eligible to enroll.


Training focuses on good manners (greeting people and impulse control around other dogs) and basic obedience (sits, downs, stays, recalls) and loose-leash walking.
