You and your pup made it to Kinderpuppy Class! Well done!
With the support of our experienced trainers, you'll learn how to take your training to the next level beyond the basics. Use games and tricks to sharpen your pup's skills as they mature and become more independent. This is the time to add pro tips and advice to your arsenal of tools, and we've got you covered. From demand barking to recalls under distraction, you'll get answers.
Training focuses on proofing verbal control without using food lures or rewards every time. Exercises include distance Sits in play (for the home, yard, dog parks and off-leash walks), Settle Down, rock-solid Stays, and both Off-Leash and On-Leash Walking and Heeling. Kindergarten will help you teach your growing pup to be calm, attentive, responsive and to respond quickly, willingly and happily, especially when distracted, off-leash, and at a distance.
The #1 reason for puppy or dog surrender is the development of behavioral issues. Training saves lives.

I have worked with C.C. on numerous occasions. I have been consistently impressed both with her skills, her commitment to her own professional education, and her dedication to providing her clients with a top quality, effective and professional service.

I highly recommend Growl Class for all dog lovers. C.C. proficiently helps keep dogs comfortable with low tension, alleviating the anxiety and concern of the people on the other end of the leash. We were taught much about why our dogs react the way they do and were given practical tools for preventing and responding in an appropriate and calm manner.
