Puppy AKC S.T.A.R. (socialization, training, activity responsibility)*
If you think dog tricks are all about jumping through hoops or playing dead, you don’t know our dogs! Our tricks classes are based on the Do More With Your Dog program. Tricks are a wonderful bonding activity for owner and dog as well as good mental stimulation for the dog. Learn tricks for fun or work towards different levels of titles offered by DMWYD. Everyone, even the dog, takes a bow at the end of these classes.TRIPLE PLAY
Our policy is to cater to your individual needs, so we allow the use of whatever training collars you prefer to use, other than electrical collars, in our classes. We are happy to offer advice and information on different collars and how they should be used. Regardless of what type of collar or training aid you use, we want to be sure you are using them correctly and safely.
Classes described as “sessions” have been designed to run for a determined number of weeks. Skills and behaviors follow a curriculum and build on each other from week to week. At the end of the session, you are ready to move on to the next level. There may be a short break between one session ending and a new one beginning.
Continuous classes are held every week and are designed to allow anyone to start at any time. The same skills and behaviors are taught week to week, so dogs and handlers will be working on different levels. While there may be some overlap and review for those just joining, the curriculum has been designed to keep all levels challenged until they are ready to move on. Trust us; there is more than one way to sit and down your dog!
