Basic Puppy Obedience
The Beginner Puppy Obedience course is geared towards families that have welcomed a new puppy into their home and owners who want to start training with their puppy under a year old. Both are wanting to build a positive connection with their puppy through mental and physical stimulus. This class has been made to start understanding simple exercises for both the puppy and their owners. We will be accomplishing foundational socialization, potty training & Crate Training techniques, basic leash and collar manners, sit, down, stay, wait, reaction and recovery response, dealing with stress, resource guarding, nipping & biting redirection, and basic grooming (nail trims, brushing, handling). These are all incredibly important foundations for your puppy to have. Please keep in mind that these are all basic steps in your puppies training that you will need to build upon either at home or in our Intermediate and Advanced Puppy Obedience Classes. This is a 6 week course with classes once a week. Classes are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Wet Noses & Wagging Tails.
