Puppy Class

Embrace who they are and get them off to a bright start.

Puppy_ClassWe are often asked what is the single most important thing you can do to help ensure that your puppy grows up to be a healthy, happy, polite adult dog… and the answer is resoundingly, “A fantastic puppy class”. The developmental time between 10-16 weeks is very, very special and we want to take full advantage of this precious time.

The class is fun and entertaining and we are able to incorporate whatever we need to customize for each and every group.

Handlers learn how to manage their puppy’s arousal and the end of each class is an open question time where staff sits down with each and every owner to see how progress is proceeding with each family and their puppy.

  • Open to the whole family
  • Socialization when it matters most
  • Quiet Holds
  • Bite Inhibition (soft mouth)
  • Eliminate Mouthing
  • Basic behaviors
  • Appropriate interactions with other dogs and people
  • Management of excitement
  • Positive methods are used to train behaviors
  • Get your puppy off to a bright start
  • Can be used with 90 Days to the Perfect Puppy

Four, one-hour classes per session

This class is available at Pet Supplies Plus in Athens.

The first four Sundays of each month from 1:00—2:00 pm.

Prerequisites

None.

No one class builds on the skills of the previous class so puppies can be enrolled as soon as they are ten (10) weeks of age and have had two rounds of vaccine. Please carry your puppies in from the car to the training area of the back room where the floor has been disinfected to help prevent disease transmission.

“This is the best class we’ve ever taken in over twenty years of training dogs. This class is just amazing!” ~ Judy Gilvey, Sam’s Mom

“This class is designed based on the work of Dr. Ian Dunbar… the father of puppy classes. It is designed to optimize your puppy for the future… working to prevent the issues that often are causes for rehoming or a dog ending up in the shelter. It includes copies of both BEFORE and AFTER You Get Your New Puppy from Dr. Ian Dunbar. We are proud to offer this class.” ~ Tina Spring
