Puppy/Beginner class descriptions

For the safety of others, if you’ve rescued your puppy or gotten the pup from a breeder, I require proof of a clean fecal before you sign up for class. (to rule out worms, coccidia and giardia – all highly contagious diseases).

Puppy K – 6 classes – first class without the dogs, remaining five classes are with the dogs. (ages: 8 weeks to approx. 16-20 weeks) $170.00
The start of focus and eye contact, sit, down, stand, the basics of stay, come, loose leash walking and “sit for petting” (versus jump on strangers). Answers to those annoying puppy behaviors will be addressed and the last 10 minutes of each class is devoted to puppy playtime.
