Puppy classes, for dogs 5 months and younger, will be offered at 2 PM as well as 7 PM on a Tuesday/Thursday schedule. The Pup class focuses on socialization and conquering puppy problems such as housebreaking, mouthing, and a good start to reliable recalls.   

 Level one pet obedience for dogs 5 months and up will be offered 6 PM. The focus is good stays, recalls and leash walking.  

 I am offering a fun class for dogs that have started obedience: Trick class at 1 PM.  The focus is on shaping behaviors with clickers. You can use a verbal marker in place of the clicker if you want.  You can pick a trick to train and I will also assign simple actions to shape to improve your behavior modification skills. Doing this kind of training in a group helps gain control of your pet in distracting situations, making you more important to your pet than the dog next to you, as well as the farm distractions of sheep, lambs, ponies, and chickens.

Pet Obedience is for dogs 5 months and older; 6 lessons for $100.
