Saturdays, 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. 
Rotary Arena - Upstairs
November 10th - December 8th (5 classes)

This class provides a solid foundation for training your dog. 
In addition to basic obedience, common problem behaviours are also addressed. 

Puppy Training Classes
(For puppies aged 2 to 9 months)
Saturdays, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Rotary Arena - Upstairs
November 10th - December 8th (5 classes)
Maximum of 6 participants 

You will learn everything you need to know to get your puppy off on the right foot.
In addition to basic obedience, you will learn puppy "foundation" techniques such as body handling, toenail clipping, preventing fears (vacuums, cars, etc.), the proper meet and greet method and proper puppy play.
Common problem behaviours such as puppy mouthing/nipping and jumping are also addressed. 

Message from the trainer, Jenelle VanAlstyne
I use a positive-reinforcement based training method along with a clicker. This means we use treats as a reward and a clicker to mark the behaviours we want. The first thing you will learn is how to use a clicker to make training fun, precise and consistent. I do not allow choke collars, prong collars or shock collars in my classes. Martingale collars (half collar, half chain), regular buckle collars or harnesses are fine.
You must bring a clicker and training treats (at least two types: their kibble and a higher value treat) to each class.
