The group classes will help focus on basic obedience with distractions and social skills with other puppies.

Puppy Classes ($155 For 8 Sessions)

This 8 lesson course is appropriate for puppies under 4 months or under 30 lbs.

At Dog Lovers Obedience School we introduce all basic commands, go over housebreaking, crate training, and appropriate chew toys. We also believe in educating the owners about nutrition, health, and grooming. At the end of all our puppy classes we allow the puppies to play that give us a chance to educate owners on what is appropriate play. We go over the difference between socializing vs exposure training, the appropriate time to use food reward for training.
We do not use food for everything we want to prevent a dependency on food reward.

Every puppy we train is different and some dogs may need certain training equipment. We sell Gentle Leaders, martingale collars, pinch collars, slip leash, or easy walk harness. We like to meet the puppy before fitting the puppy for the right training equipment. Remember, these training tools are there to help you communicate to the dog.
We do not allow retractable leashes in classes.
