Puppies who are not taught certain skills right away can develop severe behavior problems in adulthood. This eight-week class (based on the book "Control Unleashed®, the Puppy Program” by Leslie McDevitt) is all about teaching those critical skills. From calmness to impulse control, this class is designed to provide you and your puppy with a solid foundation of skills to set you up for success.
Please do not bring your dog on the first class, as we will be discussing important concepts. After the first class, bring the following:
- Front-clip harness (e.g. Balance, Freedom)
- 6-ft leash
- Portable mat (like a Mutt Mat which can be found online)
- Treat bag (e.g. Rapid Rewards on Amazon)
- 2-3 quart bags of soft, small treats (chicken, hot dogs, cheese)
(Puppies under 6 months only. Clickers will be provided. No retractable or chain leashes allowed, no prong/pinch/choke/shock collars allowed.)
Saturdays, eight weeks: 10/20-12/15* *no class 11/24
PLEASE NOTE: For the first two weeks of class, it will be held from 9:30-10:15 am. For the last six weeks of class, it will be held from 10:30-11:15 am.
