Buddy's PALS (Pet Assisted Learning Service) teams go into Lansing area schools to help children in our educational system at all grade levels with reading. Children also develop positive relationships with animals and learn the critical skills needed to care for our companion animals: compassion, responsibility, respect, and kindness.  The Buddy's PALS prep class reinforces the basic skills required for the Buddy's PALS test, including sit, stay, down, leave-it, loose leash walking, along with more advanced skills to prepare for the school environment, including interacting with children and adults.  A beginner or basic skills class is recommended before taking this class.  Learn more about Buddy's PALS on facebook!

Control Unleashed®: The Puppy Program

Puppies who are not taught certain skills right away can develop severe behavior problems in adulthood. This 7-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.

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Address nipping and jumping
  • Build relaxation and calmness
  • Train and support appropriate greetings with people
  • Reduce fear, anxiety, and over-excitement around other dogs
  • Promote attention to handler in new environments
  • Train a default safety leave it behavior
  • Support focus around distractions

Before the first class, you will receive a pre-recorded lecture (via email). You must watch this lecture before the first class, as it will cover important concepts (in place of an in-class lecture), which will maximize training time.

You will need the following:

  • Control Unleashed® book
  • Balance harness (by Blue-9 online)
  • 6-ft leash
  • Portable mat (e.g., Mutt Mat 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.)

Behavior Adjustment Training® 2.0 for Puppies

Dogs are everywhere! How do you teach your puppy not to become overexcited, fearful, or anxious or when they see a dog? In this course (based on the book “Behavior Adjustment Training®2.0” by Grisha Stewart), we simulate real-world situations where your puppy can build calmness and confidence when surrounded by other dogs and people. Starting outdoors at a distance, you will learn how to apply strategies that support your puppy to ignore other dogs, even at close-range! (Although not required, this course is a nice follow-up to the Control Unleashed course.)

In this course, we will work outdoors and you will learn how to:

  • Identify, prevent, and address early signs of anxiety and aggression
  • Support your puppy to make appropriate choices independently
  • Create your own B.A.T. setups to practice outside of class
  • Apply skills from Control Unleashed into the real world

You will need the following:

  • BAT 2.0® book
  • Treat bag (e.g. Rapid Rewards on Amazon)
  • Balance harness (by Blue-9 online)
  • 20-25ft long biothane leash (can be purchased at Annabelle’s for a 15% discount)
  • 2-3 quart bags of soft, small treats (chicken, hot dogs, cheese)

No puppies at the first class, as we will be learning important concepts, building leash-handling skills, and practicing with experienced demo dogs.

(Puppies under 9 months only. No retractable or chain leashes allowed, no prong/pinch/choke/shock collars allowed.)
