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 Tuesday! 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 as soon as you complete the orientation process you gain access to 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 Depot for 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 2-5 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, 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 moves on from Level 3 they will be able to come when called away from distractions, navigate busy public spaces on leash, hold a stay for a solid minute, only greet other dogs and people when released to do so, and patiently wait to take food off the floor when cued to do so!
Level 4- When your puppy moves on from Level 4 they will be able to recall away from food on the ground, practice their position changes at a distance (sit, down, stand), be able to settle in public, stay while you are out of sight, and have all the skills necessary to pass the AKC CGC!
Level 5- This is where the party really begins! In level 5 we continue our skills practice from previous levels while learning a new way to interact with the environment through Parkour (aka urban agility). Parkour is a fantastic new dog sport that can keep your adolescent pup active and engaged.
