  •  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.

  • Behavior modification: behavior modification is to take common puppy behaviors like chewing, mouthing, jumping and housebreaking and eliminate or minimize them using positive reinforcements and consequences.

 

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 the course you may be eligible for the AKC S.T.A.R puppy certificate!
