Puppy Play 2_edited.jpg

The Proper Paws Program

New Puppies - Ideally, new puppies should enroll in 3-4 weeks of Puppy Play and Train before they reach 16 weeks of age, 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 a 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.

What's included with  your class:

       - 6 one hour weekly in person classes where we practice and problem solve your training issues.

       - On line written training manual, including sections on crate training, house training, tricks and more.

       - On line video tutorials showing the exercises/game you will do in classes.

       - On line Weekly Homework and Assessments.

       - On line handouts on typicaly puppy behaviors and what to do about them.

       - Videos of any class you have to miss so you don't fall behind.

Group classes are not appropriate for all dogs, if your dog is aggressive or uncomfortable around other dogs, people or new things please contact me and I will be happy to assist you in finding a qualified professional in your area!

Please Note: All dogs/puppies attending classes must show proof of Kennel Cough vaccine and up to date vaccination records  prior to attending their first class. 


Makeups are not available due to the nature or our enrollment, we do offer previously recorded classes for those classes you can not attend. 


Cancellations/refunds will be accepted up to one week prior to the start of class, no refunds or credits will be issued after that date.


I do have a limited number of private appointments available for current and past clients to help with specific issues or to help with material covered in the group classes.

If you need a Behavior Consultant or want private lessons, please contact me for a referral to a qualified professional in your area.
