Puppy class - socialization & foundations

(for puppies under 20 weeks of age)

 

Canine Resolution’s six-week puppy course meets once a week and is reserved for 6 dog/handler teams. We focus on foundation obedience and manners, the AKC S.T.A.R requirements and four very important areas that Canine Resolution believes every puppy should acquire.

  •  Social skills: socialization is to have a positive experience near people, animals, environments and things.
  • Motor skills: motor skills are to learn balance, to walk on unusual tactile surfaces, rear end awareness, navigate through, under and over obstacles.

 

 

 

  • Foundation obedience: foundation obedience is to create a solid foundation for focus, obedience, self- control and problem solving.
  • Behavior modification: behavior modification is to take common puppy behaviors like chewing, mouthing, jumping and housebreaking and eliminate or minimize them.

 

Our puppy course was designed to prevent bad behaviors from forming, to build your puppies confidence and to establish a leadership role as the parent. Upon completion of 6 classes you may be eligible for the AKC S.T.A.R puppy certificate!

Beginner obedience - acquisition and generalization 

(for dogs over 5 months of age)

 

Canine Resolution’s six-week beginner course meets once a week and is reserved for 6 dog/handler teams. At Canine Resolution our goal is to help each dog and handler reach their highest potential. We will teach you how to communicate with your dog so they learn to have good manners and obedience, creating that well trained pet that you've always wanted. Over 25 years of hands on experience and research has helped us acquire this goal.

 

The Canine Resolution difference shows in the details. The first class is an orientation for people only, before you are ever placed into a group situation with your dog, you will learn all the basics that are necessary for success. We have 2 instructors per class, this low student /teacher ratio allows personal time with the instructors.   

 

BeginnerCourse Includes:

Detailed handouts showing you step by step lessons that are taught in every class.

 

Lessons taught:

Look,Touch,Place
• Sit, Down, Stay
• Wait, Come
• Let’s go and heel
