Do you have a "teenaged" pooch between 4 months and 9 months old? Have you recently finished Puppy FUNdamentals, but aren’t quite ready for our LEVELS program? Would you like to offer your older puppy an opportunity to polish their play skills? Our Junior Dog class will help you bridge the sometimes frustrating gap between the “too-cute-to-do-anything-wrong” phase and the polite, well-mannered adult you know is in there somewhere!
Junior Dog is an introduction to basic training for young dogs between 4 and 9 months old that understands the specific needs of this developmental period, as well as the unique challenges of raising a puppy in an urban environment. Special topics include focus/attention, impulse control, canine body language, and Place work, in addition to polite greetings and loose leash walking. Your instructors can help troubleshoot common problems, decode your pup's interactions with their peers, and guide you on next steps that fit your individual pooch. Each class comes with written instructions so the whole family can practice at home!
