Puppy / Basic Training

The Basic/ Puppy Group Course covers all your basic skills needed to have a well behaved family member in an 7 week course.  It includes most of the test items for the CGC test as well.    It starts off with the foundations of training and teaching your pup/dog how to pay attention to you.  You cannot teach a dog that is not focused on you!  Throughout the course you build a relationship with your dog as well as basic control over the commands.

We use positive reinforement & conditioning training to build a trusting relationship which develops a pet that is eager to learn and please.

Cost of 7 week Course:  $135.00
