Hybrid Puppy Kindergarten
with Adele Yunck
Length: 60 minutes each week
Prerequisites: Puppies must be between 10 weeks and 4 months when class starts. Please check with your veterinarian about the best age for you to start class, as it will depend on how many vaccinations your puppy has had before leaving his breeder and other factors.
Class content: This class is a fun introduction to training with your new puppy. Learn how to build a solid relationship with your new puppy and a good foundation for future dog sports. We focus on basic obedience skills (attention, come, sit, down, stay, and loose-leash walking). We introduce the puppies to a variety of obstacles, including several from agility, with the goal of building your puppy's confidence with new experiences. We do some playtime most weeks, where the puppies get to interact in a small area off leash for socialization with other people and puppies.
The course includes several on-line videos for you to watch before coming to class each week, so you can start to work on skills at home and then come to class for practice. There are also weekly handouts for you to download and read.
- Lots of small, easy-to-chew, high-value treats (this is from the dog’s perspective; they should love what they are getting).
- A mat or rug (think bath mat) or dog bed
- Collar and 4-6 foot leash
- If your puppy is active and likes to bark, bring something to occupy them during down time.
REGISTRATION IS BY DOG. DO NOT REGISTER A SECOND PERSON - YOU WILL END UP BEING CHARGED TWICE.
