Help puppies learn to behave appropriately when meeting people and other dogs.

Puppies will also practice maintaining self-control when engaging in new experiences. Additionally, we provide helpful handouts about getting your puppy to:

  • Become socialized.
  • Come when called.
  • Stop mouthing.
  • Become house-trained.
  • Learn basic manners.
  • Become potty trained.
  • Get off to a good start.

Our goal is to help you build a stronger bond with your pet, setting the stage for your long, happy, healthy life together. Our certified trainers provide each participant individual attention, so you get the most from each lesson.


LENGTH: 45 MIN | Once a week for five weeks.
TUITION: $75*
AGE REQUIREMENT: Puppies must be 16 weeks or younger.

The first class is an orientation for owners only (no dogs); meet in the lobby.
