Puppy PLay with paws to appreciate
$15 at the door

Puppy play is a supervised play time with young pups- think a safe, healthy "dog park" for puppies under 6 months.

This is a great way to help your puppies learn to properly play and socialize and can be a great precursor for Obedience 101!

Cost is $15 at the door for drop-ins.

Please be aware that ALL dogs must have their vet requirements pre-approved and confirmed before attendance:

  • DHPP (appropriate for their age)

  • Bordetella (appropriate for their age)

  • Rabies (if applicable)

  • Fecal float

  • Giardia antigen test (a secondary fecal exam that must be specifically requested from your vet)

Once your puppy's vet requirements have been confirmed, you can attend!

This is a 6-week session of 1-hour classes where you will work with all the basic cues: sit, stay, lay down, place and loose leash walking. One cue will be worked on each class and they are consecutive.

 

The main goal is to help your dog excel in these cues by challenging them with duration and distance. You are welcome to use a clicker but it isn't required for this class. 

 

Bring your dog in on a leash with a martingale or flat collar. Treats are used for initial motivation before they dogs are taught cues they will respond to instead.

 

Dress for the weather as some of our training work may be done outside in the parking lot to challenge your dog with additional distractions. 

Please be aware that ALL dogs must have their vet requirements pre-approved and confirmed before attendance:

  • DHPP

  • Bordetella (done within the last 6 months; repeated every 6 months)

  • Rabies 

  • Fecal testing - 2 parts done within 30 days of class start; repeated every 6 months

  • Fecal float

  • Giardia antigen test (a secondary fecal exam that must be specifically requested from your vet)

Once your dog's vet requirements have been confirmed, you can attend!
