Take your puppy’s training beyond classes with our Play and Learn (PAL) program! The more we socialize, train and condition puppies during puppyhood, the better off they will be as adults.
For puppies that were part of our PAL program and/or have taken our Life Skills class, here is your opportunity to build on that foundation! Take your adolescent dogs training and skills beyond classes with our Teen Play and Learn (PAL) Academy program! The more we socialize, train and condition dogs during this sensitive adolescent period, the better off they will be as adults.
Register for Puppy Kindergarten A if your puppy is under 5 months old and has never taken a puppy class before. You can also register for this class if you have a 5 month old puppy that is a small breed or otherwise timid. The first semester you’ll take Puppy Kindergarten A, where you and your puppy will learn basic cues such as sit, down, touch, and others. Your puppy will get supervised play time with all the other puppies twice each class, and you’ll build social skills for your dog that will take him or her through to adulthood.
Your puppy is growing by leaps and bounds — and so is his brain! You’ll learn about the needs of your now “teenage” puppy as well as how this stage of growth and development plays into different behavioral issues. We will continue working on and strengthening the basic cues learned in Puppy 1 as well as adding new cues such as ‘on your spot,’ ‘watch’ and ‘leave it.’ We’ll also still have plenty of playtime to keep your pup’s socialization skills sharp!
If your dog has graduated from Puppy Kindergarten C, Puppy Elementary School, or Canine Basics and is between 6 and 18 months, continue his or her education with this class. You can also enroll in this class directly, but we recommend taking Elementary School or Canine Basics first. In Canine Middle School we’ll work to develop your dogs social skills, your ability to read canine body language, and play lots of fun games.
