Puppy Kindergarten
6 week sessions
Ongoing for puppies

Monday, 6:00 PM

It is important to socialize your puppy.  This means exposure to as many kinds of adults, children, and the environment that you want your puppy to be comfortable with as an adult dog.  Puppy classes also helps your puppy learn bite inhibition (how to control the force of his bite). Puppies more readily learn bite inhibition by off leash play with other puppies.  Puppy playtime is a great way for pups to practice their dog-to-dog social skills too.  We will also work on some basic manners and cues (such as sit, down, no jump, give, come, etc.) as well as have lots of information to help you have a wonderful experience with your new puppy.

We will help you build a foundation of communication and trust and teach you how to train your dog to be a courteous member of your household by teaching basic manners.  Classes will provide lots of general canine information and get your dog started on some basic cues (sit, down, come, walk politely on leash, etc.) and impulse-control (stay, no jumping, give, etc.)

Advanced Beginner
8 week sessions
Wednesday, 7:30 PM

This class will continue where Beginner Level I (DogDays) or Basic Manners (Pet Junction) left off.  Using a clicker, we will enhance the skills your dog has learned and teach new ones.  The goal will be to have good on-leash control and more control in public places.  If the students in the class prefer, we can begin work on the skills needed to become certified by the American Kennel Club (AKC) with a Canine Good Citizen certificate (CGC).

    Note: If you did not take the Beginner Level I class at Dog Days or the Basic Manners class at Pet Junction, please contact the instructor for permission to register.  Contact Linda at: 612-619-8549 or schindlerdogtraining@comcast.net
