This four week program is designed for puppies 18 weeks old or younger. During each lesson we teach you how to guide your puppy with basic obedience, socialization and appropriate exercise. Our basic obedience covers Sit, Down, Stay, Come and Loose Leash Walking. We also cover puppy raising topics such as housebreaking, crate training, chewing and preventing resource guarding. We will also work with you to develop ways to keep your puppy physically and mentally stimulated so they stay out of trouble!
Our Basic Obedience Private Lessons are once a week for 6 weeks. During these lessons your dog will learn Sit, Down, Stay, Leave it, Drop it, Loose Leash Walking, Heel and Come commands.
