Our Goal

WE TRAIN DOGS' Puppy Pre-Skills Program aims at helping your puppy become happy, healthy, and polite.

Program Details

These classes are for puppies 10 weeks old to five months old.

 

This is a six week program. One class a week for six weeks. The classes are usually one hour long. We schedule each class according to your avialibility.

Each class will consist of a training period and a play period. During the training period we with work with your puppy teaching them the behavior and skills they need so the both of you can live a happy healthy life together. Then we will teach you how to work those behaviors and skills with your puppy.

 

Areas of Focus

Basic Obedience

Your puppy will be trained on basic obedience skills including:

  • Name Recognition

Manners

Because your puppy is never to young to learn good manners. During the class we will also address:

  • Mouthing

  • Barking

  • Jumping

  • Crate Training

  • Housetraining

  • Leave It

What You'll Need

Here is a list of thing you will need for this program.

  1. A copy of your puppy's current vaccination records

  2. A collar. Preferable a martingale style collar or a slip collar. However, a buckle collar will be fine.

  3. A 6 foot leash. No retractable or chain leashes.

  4. A treat bag, pouch, or fanny pack.

  5. Treats. Lots of small, easy-to-chew, high-value treats. Cut up pieces of cheese or hot dogs are good choices, as are soft treats made specifically for training. (Experiment in advance to discover what your puppy really loves.)

Preparing for class: 

  1. Make sure to give your puppy time to relieve themselves before class.

  2. Please, do not feed your puppy before class. A hungry puppy is more motivated to learn.
