The Puppy Steps Class is designed specifically for puppies between the ages of 2-4 months. This is both an on and off-leash class where we teach puppy basics and then proof them in a safe, supervised, and off-leash scenario. The off-leash portion of the class is geared towards instilling healthy play, social skills, and canine communication. Once the basic cues taught are practiced on-leash, there will be several opportunities to proof said cues during the 2-3 rounds of off-leash sessions. This teaches leash-tolerance for when our puppy doesn’t understand that they are in fact connected to us for safety reasons, along with creating a positive association with “leashing up” overall.
The obedience cues taught include the following: Come Away, Treat & Grab, Name Game, Watch Me, Sit, Recall (Come When Called), Leave It, Down, Drop It, Wait, Leash Relationship, and Stay. This includes addressing puppy behaviors such as potty training, chewing/teething, crate/confinement training, handling skills, and confidence-building, coprophagia, demand barking, and more…
