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.

  • 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)
