This class is for puppies under 5 months of age. Emphasis is placed on social skills, confidence building, and teaching the puppies to accept the owner as pack leader. Basic control commands, including sit, stand, down, come and heel are introduced.

Family Pet I

This class is for dogs 5 months of age or older. Emphasis is placed on the basic control commands, sit, stay, down, stand, heel and come. Behavioral problems common to most dogs, such as lunging at other dogs and jumping up on people are addressed through specific exercises.

Family Pet II

Distractions are used to challenge the dog's responsiveness to commands, and off leash control is introduced.
