Get started on the right paw!
Raising a puppy can be fun and very rewarding and also a big challenge! The K-9 Obedience Club offers classes to help you train your puppy to become a self-confident, happy and easy-to-live-with companion.
Do not underestimate what your puppy can do and learn even at a very young age.
This class is suitable for puppies from 3-6 months of age that have had two sets of immunization shots (8 & 10 weeks.) We use positive reinforcement methods and games to make training fun for both the owner and the puppy.
Puppies will be taught basic obedience skills:
Walk on a Leash Leave It
Greeting people politely
Tips and guidance for impulse control, potty and crate training, plus discussions about many common behavioral issues such as biting, teething, chewing, jumping, barking, socialization, separation anxiety and more. The subject of safety issues for kids & dog interactions will include the various stress signals dogs use daily.
Early socialization (starting around 9 weeks of age) is critical for the development of all puppies, so get your puppy out to experience the wonders of the world! But be sure to follow your vet’s recommendations as to places where the puppy will be safe.
