Puppy Life Skills

Puppies can join our program as early as 10 weeks of age, and remain in puppy class until they are 5 months old.

Levels Training

With our Levels Training Program we offer you the flexibility to choose your day and time to attend class and the opportunity to train multiple times during the week.

We have partnered with the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) to bring you the Canine Life and Social Skills (C.L.A.S.S.) program. Our focus remains the same, promoting responsible pet ownership while also promoting the understanding in dog training methods that focus on using positive reinforcement and on building relationships and communication between dog and owner. We now offer a 3-Level training program:

Bachelor’s (B.A.) Level assesses the core life skills of a student/dog team, and includes a knowledge assessment of the student’s understanding of basic dog handling and care.

Master’s (M.A.) Level assesses the life skills of the student/dog team with distractions.

Doctorate (Ph.D.) Level is the highest level, designed to assess the performance reliability of a dog/student team’s life skills.
