Puppy Manners Class is a fun 6 week program

New puppy? You’ll need a few things. We’re not just talking collars and leashes...we’re talking training...his and yours!

In our beginner’s puppy class, you’ll quickly learn how to address the pressing  “puppy problems” of socialization, potty training, puppy biting and destructive chewing. Your puppy will be introduced to basic obedience skills that will set the foundation for later learning. Fun exercises and games teach bonding, attention behaviors, impulse control, sits, downs, stays, come and polite greetings.

We will focus on teaching you how to CORRECTLY use praise, toys, games, food and most importantly, yourself, as rewards in your puppy’s training...all without it becoming a bribe! Your puppy quickly learns to respond reliably to you and not the food or toy in your hand! You will learn to control your puppy off leash right from the start! That’s right...off leash training starts immediately! Plus you will continue socializing your pup to new people and other dogs in our playgroups and much, much more! You and your puppy will learn more in 6 weeks than many dogs learn in a year!

To provide you with the best puppy training experience possible, Doggie Shrink’s Puppy Social Skills and Puppy Manners classes are most effective when taken at the same time to form a total of 18-lessons of comprehensive and concentrated training.

Veterinarians recognize and recommend our puppy socialization and training programs as the safest and smartest alternative to socializing young puppies who have not yet been fully vaccinated. With our programs, you can start your puppy’s training as young as 8 weeks of age!

Concerned about bringing your puppy in for training before he's had all of his shots?
