Puppy Levels Program
Puppy Training with our Puppy Levels Program
Pricing varies-Open Enrollment, start anytime!
We designed this program to eliminate the hassle of start dates and make-up sessions for missed classes. You can enroll at any time and if you need to go on vacation you can pick up right where you left off when you return. Our flexible scheduling allows you to pick and choose what sessions to attend, or you can attend them all. Each level is broken down into specific skill sets that become more difficult as you move up. We find this allows the human-puppy team to grasp a full understanding of each skill before increasing the criteria.
Who is it for?
Puppies between the ages of 9-weeks and 1-year can start! We do require that puppies are up to date, per their age, on the following vaccines: Distemper/Parvo, Bordetella, and Rabies (if over 6 months)
When can we start?
We have openings every Sunday and Thursday! Everyone is required to start at level 1, puppies with previous training experience are likely to move up quickly. Once you register you immediately gain access to our online orientation video and your Level 1 online learning materials- this means you can get started before even stepping foot in the classroom!
What is included?
- Online access to all of our supplemental learning materials- written homework plans, how-to videos, and more!
- In-class feedback and guidance while working on skills and social interactions
- Positive social interactions for your puppy with other puppies and people- when it comes to social interactions we build confidence by focusing on individual needs
- Preventative and modification training plans for common behavior struggles such as jumping up, barking, and chewing
- Higher levels gain access to field trip session at local parks
and Home Depotfor some real-life handling experience with guidance
When are the classes?
Each level is offered multiple times per week to allow for flexible attendance.
Levels 2-3 gain access to our Saturday park sessions where we meet at a different local park each week. Check out our full schedule on our google calendar!
What is covered in each level?
Level 1- When your puppy moves on from Level 1 they will be able to respond to their name, sit and lie down on cue, focus around friends, enjoy body handling specific to veterinary care, interact with environmental stimuli confidently, solve problems independently, walk on a loose leash and more!
Level 2- When your puppy moves on from Level 2 they will be able to come when called, walk nicely on leash, stop and wait on cue, and be capable of working and playing with you at a park surrounded by other puppies!
Level 3- When your puppy graduates from Level 3 they will be able to come when called away from distractions, navigate busy public spaces on a leash, stay in a relaxed down, only greet other dogs and people when released to do so, and focus on their handler around food distractions on the ground!
How does the pricing work?
Think of it like a gym membership for puppy class, only you can pause your membership at any time for vacations, spay/neuter recovery, or illness- just be sure to let us know! You choose an enrollment package below and are able to continue attending until you’ve used up all your sessions. When you move up to another level your package moves with you and you can add to your package at any time without moving down a level. On average, Puppies spend 3-4 sessions in level 1, and 4-8 in levels 2 and 3. However, if you enjoy the class and want to continue attending sessions after completing your level 3 skills you can keep attending our Park and Home Depot sessions as long as you’d like!
How do I sign up?
Once you purchase your package you will be emailed a code and redirected to our scheduling page. I would suggest scheduling your first 3 level 1 sessions right away and reserve the rest to see if you move up to level 2 or need to stay at level 1 a bit longer, remember every human and puppy team move at their own pace!
