    When registering, you’ll see it says “over 5 classes” or “over 6 classes” which describes how many weeks the class is. 

    We generally welcome puppies into our classes around 10-12 weeks depending on their vaccination schedule. Puppies should have had at least 2 rounds of vaccinations (most importantly distemper and parvo) before joining class.

    We welcome your well behaved and supervised children to participate in class.  

    Working closely with your veterinarian to determine age appropriate vaccines is always suggested. 

    We recommend that puppies receive at least 2 rounds of core vaccines (distemper, parvo, parainfluenza, etc) and Rabies as age appropriate. 

    Bordetella is recommended but not required.

    Vaccines should be given at least a week before class. 

    To have the most success, you should bring the following with you to class:

    • a well fitted collar with identification
    • 4 – 6ft nylon or leather leash (no retractable leashes may be used in class)
    • a well fitted harness if you use one
    • a snack size bag of small, soft treats for reinforcement.  Treats should be no bigger than an eraser in size (or smaller depending on the dog)
    Please do not feed your dog a full meal before class (especially if they get car sick). 

    Leash Walking Clinic

    Does your dog pull you down the street when on leash?  This 4 week leash clinic will focus on improving your dog’s attention on you and responding to the leash.  We’ll work on proper position when on leash and not pulling ahead, criss crossing or lagging behind. 

    This class is designed for friendly dogs that do not show reactive behavior (barking or lunging) toward dogs or people.  For work with reactive behavior, please see our Reactive Recovery Class.
