LEVEL I: PUPPY KINDERGARTEN

LEVEL I - BASIC MANNERS

A puppy’s primary and secondary socialization periods last from approximately 3 to 16 weeks of age. This is the best time to expose your puppy to new people, other dogs and new environments. During this time, a puppy develops the blueprint he will use for the rest of his life when encountering new things. This class focuses on socializing your puppy and includes exercises to help him build his confidence and social skills. Using positive reinforcement training methods, we will also get him started on basic manners such as: attention, coming when called, sit and leave it. No puppies first day of class (orientation). Puppies must have at least first set of vaccines. Please bring a copy of vaccines to orientation.

Basic Manners is designed for dog’s that have not yet taken a training class, for puppies who have completed Puppy Kindergarten or dogs that just need a refresher on the basics. Using positive reinforcement training, dogs will learn the foundations for: Coming When Called, Sit /& Down, Leave It, Polite People Greetings (not jumping), Loose-Leash Walking, Attention Exercises, and Stay. No dogs the first day of class (orientation). Dogs must need to have proof of rabies vaccination. Please bring a copy of rabies vaccination to orientation. If your dog is exhibiting aggressive, reactive or fearful/ shy behaviors towards people or other dogs, please contact instructor before registering for class: Cari Messick :cari@fithound.com
