Why we do not offer puppy training classes
We know you may be searching for a group class for your new puppy. We are not against group classes for puppies, in fact we highly recommend puppy play and socialization classes especially for puppies between the ages of 8-16 weeks. However, we prefer actual training and learning be conducted in an environment that is not distracting to the puppy. We work in the private session format for puppies due to the learning advantages it provides the puppy and owner.
Our Puppy Course Benefits vs Group Classes
- For many puppies, group classes may be too distracting for an effective learning environment
- With private sessions, you can start as soon as you bring your puppy home.
- We customize the training that matches your puppy’s personality. During each session, we spend a full hour discussing and training YOUR puppy rather than having to split your attention among other students in a group class.
- We can advise you on the best home setup because we are able to get a visual of your home.
- We can spend time with all of your family members including children to discuss proper puppy handling and interaction.
- We also provide socialization sessions at my home where your puppy will interact with appropriate puppies and dogs that are specifically trainer selected.
