This 7 week class is for pups 5 to 12 months old. This class is for the older puppy who missed out on attending puppy classes when it was a baby pup 8-18 weeks old. You will learn to teach your puppy foundational skills for good behavior such as sit, down, come and loose leash walking. There are discussions on puppy issues such as biting, chewing, jumping up on people and things, and proper puppy management. Puppy play is not allowed in this class as the window for optimum puppy socialization closes at 16 weeks old. The focus will be on teaching the dog impulse control and cooperation. The first class is a discussion of the training methods that will be used and how dogs learn, as well as, the individual concerns of the group. The first class is a Chat Class for people only – dogs do not attend.
