This class session introduces the base positions of sit and down along with the concept of waiting until a release cue for movement. Combined with exercises that pet parents use in their daily routine such as waiting for the food bowl, or waiting to walk through a doorway this class aims to cultivate impulse control, calmness and foundational skills necessary for success. 

Our group classes function a little differently than most, in that all classes run on a rotating schedule so that you can join in whenever you like! All of our classes are served “a-la-carte” style, at $30 per session, you are not required to purchase a certain amount of sessions in advance. Instead, each daily topic is listed on our monthly calendar so you can attend the topics that are important to you in any order you prefer, and repeat or skip lessons as you like. This puts you in full control of what your pup learns, and what is important to you, without hurting your pocketbook.

Puppy Topic Rotation:

Come When Called

Greeting People Politely

Teething, Nipping & Biting

Loose Leash Walking

Stay & Wait

Stationing & Settle
