Puppy Preschool (10-14 weeks old)

This class is designed specifically for our youngest pups (10-14 weeks old) to help them (and their family) get off to the best start pawsible! After getting a puppy the immediate weeks following are the most important. Things like socialization, sights, sounds, smells and introduction to people and other dogs are key for a puppy’s development. If socialization is not done properly or not at all, it can cause serious behavioural issues in the future. The goal of Puppy Preschool is to help you socialize your pup and teach you how to properly introduce your puppy to this big scary human world! We will also help you navigate through those pesky puppy behaviours like nipping, chewing, jumping up and cover topics such as separation anxiety and house training. Lastly, we will also cover desensitization to husbandry skills like brushing, teeth cleaning and nail trimming.  

The goal of this class is to help create a happy, well-adjusted pup. This class does not include obedience cues. For the intro to obedience training puppies are recommended to enter our Puppy Kindergarten Class!

Basic Obedience Classes

$190 +gst for 6 sessions

Basic obedience classes teach you the fundamentals of an obedient dog and give you the foundations of positive reinforcement training. Teaching younger dog obedience will help with impulse control and hyperactivity; the end results being a more controlled, well behaved dog.  This course will introduce you to food lures, how and when to use them and how to successfully wean your dog from treats once the behaviour is learned. You will also learn how to effectively use a clicker to help with training. Using these skills, you will learn how to train your dog to sit, stay, down, heel, come, loose leash walk and focus. For dogs aged 6 months and up.

Rocket Recall (at Good Hound Country)

$140 +gst for 4 sessions

Do you want your dog to have the Rocket Recall? Having a Rocket Recall means your dog will come when you call him/her, everytime! It means no more having your dog ignore you at the park or beach and no one losing your voice as you repeat “come” over and over. Having a Rocket Recall also means keeping your dog safe by having the ability to redirect them from dangerous distractions (cars, cliffs, unfriendly animals). This class is for dogs who have taken a group class with us or another positive reinforcement trainer and is dog friendly. Note this class will take place at our Good Hound Country location.

For dogs 6 months and up who have Basic Obedience.
