Barkers Puppy Class

Congratulations! You have a new puppy and you're ready to start your dog training adventure! This course is designed for puppies under seven months.  You will be taught the basics of dog training using positive reinforcement.  We seek to create a solid framework by giving you the tools and skills you need to raise a confident, well behaved pup, all while strengthening the bond between you and your dog.

The class is six weeks long (one hour per class) with homework given every night.  To get the absolute most of these classes, we ask that you attend every class, do your homework and practice every day.  Practice makes perfect!  Think of the time you spend training as an investment.  It may seem like a lot of work now, but it will pay off over and over in the future!

 

 

Cost: $175 +gst for the 6 classes

Dates: Mondays @ 7:00, starting May 27th

 

All puppies must be at least 12 weeks old at the start of classes and be up to date with Dappv & Bordetella. Proof of vaccines are required to be either brought the first class or emailed ahead of time.

 

Class is an hour long so to get the most out of it, be sure to show up a few minutes early. Come prepared. This includes:

 

  • a solid, 6 foot leash (no flexileashes or chains)

  • a buckle or martingale collar (or harness); no choke chains or prong collars

  • a clicker (if using)

  • lots of high value treats (bring more than you think you’ll need)

  • tug toy for toy‐orientated dogs
