The Proper Paws Program
New Puppies - Ideally, new puppies should enroll in 3-4 weeks of Puppy Play and Train before they are 16 weeks old, followed by Levels 1, 2 and 3 respectively. This provides your new puppy will both early socialization and training thru early adolescents.
If your dog is between 10 weeks and 6 months of age, they are welcome to do Level 1 - Puppy Kindergarten whether they have been able to attend Play and Train or not.
Those that want to go further, prepare their dogs for Therapy work, competition or just to keep their pups engaged can then enjoy selection of Electives like Rally, Tricks, CGC, CGCA and Adventure Class!
For older Puppies and Adult dogs - we have our Level 1 - Beginner Obedience program, which covers all the behaviors that your older puppy or newly rescued dog needs, AND takes into consideration the fact that they may already have some of those skills.
Group classes are available Monday - Thursday's between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm. All classes are 6 weeks for $250, unless otherwise noted.
