Veterinary universities now safely offer puppy classes for pups as young as 7 week old. That takes advantage of the fastest learning time in a dog's life, prevents future behavior issues and prevents shyness or aggression caused by lack of socialization with friendly people and safely-screened dogs.
Our open-enrollment system means you can start this week! Jump into beginner levels with an orientation class (one of three different times each week) for PuppyLove of Basic Manners. Have an advanced dog and handler team? You can come by the day or by the month for our small-group sessions or get private help.
We offer barter (trade classes for skills or items we need) or work study, where you help around our home and property to cover the cost of your classes. Work study can also include purchasing things we need (talk to us first, of course, to confirm what and how much concrete mix or gravel we need, for instance). We give you double what you spend in credit toward your class cost.
Gentle methods are the most effective way to help your dog with social issues. Getting them off their home terrains produces faster results since they have no emotional attachment to our spaces.
We do not have to see your dog's rude or fearful displays to believe you. We truly know how bad it can get.
It is best if he never feels the need to do that again. You can start the changes now.
For one week or more prior to your first class, or if you find his good behavior slipping for any reason (busy schedule, sabotage from indulgent friends or family, or stressful times) it is helpful to hand feed your dog for doing simple obedience tricks or new fun skills like fetch or roll over.
Dole out a few pieces at a time of high-quality dry or specialty dog food for paying attention to you in a polite way, or for learning or practicing his tricks, throughout the day & evening.
Give him his full ration of food without using the dog food bowl.
If you are limited in time at home due to your work hours or other responsibilities, do this just for the evening meal or whenever works for you.
This also helps a new dog bond to you faster. Dole it out a piece at a time or a handful at a time for doing useful tricks and demonstrating better manners.
After beginner and intermediate levels, go on to our advanced classes for more agility and obedience fun that make with your pet even more entertaining!
