Online Pawsitive Group Puppy Training

(2 to 4 months) 5 classes + Certificate

Is there a new family member in town!?  The first several months of a puppy’s life are the most ideal time to socialize him and will help him grow into a perfect family member! During this time of uncertainty, we understand the importance of ensuring your puppy has the best experience possible! We’ll teach you how to build a wonderful, benevolent relationship with your puppy while tackling all of those common puppy behaviors that we really don’t want to keep seeing - annoying puppy nipping, chewing inappropriate things, potty issues, digging and jumping.  All the while, we will be teaching him a wonderful beginning foundation of focus, attention and calmness through a variety of fun training exercises online that will prepare your puppy for the new world!

We prefer to give clients and pups as much attention as possible so we keep our classes to 6 pups max.  

 

According to the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior: “The Primary And most important time for puppy socialization is the first three months of life. During this time puppies should be exposed to as many new people, animals, stimuli and environments as can be achieved safely and without causing overstimulation manifested as excessive fear, withdrawal or avoidance behavior.   For this reason, the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior believes that it should be the standard of care for puppies to receive such socialization before they are fully vaccinated.”

*No prong collars, choke chains, or shock collars allowed

Lunging, barking, and growling at people or dogs? If you answered yes to any of these questions this class is for you. It is great for dogs that bark, dogs that hide, dogs that need more space between them, snap, growl or lunge and for owners that are anxious about their dog’s safety or their own. Bark-A-Holics classes will have you working in a small group of three dogs, and with extra personal attention, but without the cost of private lessons. Just you, your dog and two other teams are in the Bark-A-Holics class.
