Happy Dog Level One

Pups over 20 weeks of age

This is a 6-week beginner class for pups over 20 weeks of age. We all want our dogs to have the happiest life possible and that is one of the goals of this class! We will give you the skills to effectively improve your canine communication, so that your dog learns your expectations and vice versa! Each week we will introduce training exercises for you to practice at home and we will discuss other topics that will deepen your understanding of your dog’s experience. Topics to be covered include: basic manners skills (sit/down, stay, walking on a loose leash, and many more), impulse control exercises, dog body language basics, and enrichment strategies. Our ultimate goal is to enhance and strengthen the bond you have with your dog.

This class is taught by Alex Ferrente of Young Lion Training and Behavior.

Hide & Go Sniff

Pups over 20 weeks of age

Dogs experience the world through their nose, and sniffing is one of the best energy outlets we can provide them. In this tiny class (4 dogs max), we'll focus solely on teaching you and your dogs how to play a fun, relaxing dog sport at home without any special equipment. We'll teach you nose work basics at week 1, and take turns trying a new nose work course each subsequent week, sometimes with a new challenge thrown in!

If you're looking for some no-pressure fun with your dog - this class is for you.

This class is taught by Alex Ferrente of Young Lion Training and Behavior.
