Training Class Info

posted Feb 28, 2013, 2:04 PM by Aliesha Shepherd
The first class will be an introduction to the clicker, allowing you and your dog to become familiar with new surroundings, dog social skills, and the beginning of recall

This is the schedule for the puppy classes.  Any puppy who wishes to be in a class needs to be, and stay, up to date on their vaccines, which are normally given at 8, 12, 16 weeks of age for puppies.  (Parvo is a very preventable, highly contagious, and very deadly virus)

Wk1: Intro to clicker, loading the clicker, familiarize pups with new area, socializing, and name recognition (beginning of recall)
Wk2: Sit, Recall,& Socializing

Wk3: Heel, Off, Recall, & Socializing

Wk4: Wait, Recall, & Socializing

Wk5: Drop it, Leave it, Recall, & Socializing
Wk6: Stay, Come, Socializing & Graduation Certificate

(classes subject to change according to the needs of the dogs in the class)

If you have a barking problem I can also help address that issue.

If your dog knows the basics, but needs help always doing what you have asked, let me know and I will set things up to help with that as well.

Potty Training: I teach you (and your dog) how to ring a bell to let you know when he needs to go out.  I also will offer tips for your house and for your family.  I highly recommend the Potty Training Puppy Apartment as a way of helping crate train and avoiding accidents in the house.  Below is a link to what that is:

I do offer a "Tricks" course where we can teach anything you would like (must have most basics down), or some of my favorites:

High 5, Shake, Roll Over, Army Crawl, Jump (through a hoop and over hurdle), Touch (great aid to help in other trick areas), Find it and Clean up
