Our Puppy Starters is more than your typical puppy class! This is our most popular class, and it’s praised by experienced and first-time owners alike because we set the right foundation. Training should begin early in a dog’s life and attending a puppy class is a great way to start building their love for learning (and you!). We believe training should be fun, so everything is age-appropriate. This class follows the AKC’s S.T.A.R. Puppy program to teach our puppies basic manners – potty training, crate training, play biting, jumping on people, and destructive chewing – and obedience – sit, down, focus, and wait – while not overwhelming your puppy or moving too quickly. This age-appropriate class has been heralded by our clients as “The Best Puppy Class in the Entire Triangle!” because it is designed to put you and your puppy in a fun and successful learning environment. Our primary focus is to give you the skills you’ll need so that you’ll form life-long bonds and raise your puppy to be a well-socialized, well-mannered adult. This class promises to get you and your puppy excited for training.
Imagine an indoor, temperature-controlled, off-leash puppy park where a lifeguard is always “on duty” – this interactive class offers a perfect balance of education and socialization! While your puppy plays off-leash (with trainer supervision), you’ll learn about their unique social behavior, social preferences, appropriate vs. inappropriate play, on- and off-leash greetings, dog body language, and more! You’ll learn how to properly socialize your puppy outside of the classroom and even go on “scavenger hunts” with them.
