How often have you seen someone being pulled down the street by their dog.  Supposedly, they are walking their dog, but who is the one that is really getting walked? 

How many times do you yell at your dog to stop jumping? 

Are you constantly shouting "QUIIIET" at your dog to stop him from barking at every noise he hears outside?  

These are just a few problems that can be resolved with proper Obedience Training.  Walking & playing with your dog can be a great pleasure so long as you teach him what you want him to do, and how to react towards others, both dogs and humans.  However, if you are not willing to teach him, how can you expect him to know what you want, and you shouldn't be yelling at him, or dragging him by his leash.  
Puppy School:
The kindest and most important thing you can do for your puppy is to begin his education immediately.  The first few months of his life is his most formative time.  Your puppy's education begins the day you bring him home.  This is "Kindergarten".  See our Articles:  What Do I Do With This Puppy?  Parts 1 & 2.

The next step is going to "First Grade", beginning at about 10 weeks old.  This begins his formal education. 

For puppies 10 to 20 weeks old.
           - The course comprises two sessions per week for four weeks
              (a total of eight classes).
           - The program includes teaching your puppy to: 
                Sit,
                     Lie Down,
                            Recall,
                                   Stay,
                                          Drop it,
                                                  Walking on Leash,

              - We will work with your puppy, as well as show you, what we have done and
                 are doing in order for you to follow through with the training. 
              - Prepared work sheets.  This will be your homework.  We will give you an
                 outline of what to do in order to continue with your puppy's education
                 between classes and after school is finished.





Elementary School  (High School for Puppy School Graduates) - Basic Training Class:
A continuation and furtherance of the Puppy School, or for dogs 5 months and older.  We expand upon what was learned in Puppy School for those that are continuing their training. 

For new students, it is a Basic On-Leash course for adolescent and older dogs. 
        - The course comprises two sessions per week for five weeks (a total of 10 classes).
        - The program includes teaching your dog to: 
                Sit,                                Lie Down,
                     Recall,                                Stay,
                        Drop it,                            Walking on Leash,
                                 Biting,                                   Jumping,

              - We will work with both you and your dog, in order to develop a close bond
                 between the two of you.  It is important to build confidence in your dog.  He
                 must look up to you as if you were a God (that's Dog spelled backwards) and      
                 could do no wrong.
              - Prepared work sheets.  This will be your homework.  We will give you an outline
                of what to do in order to continue training between classes and after graduation.
