Puppy Elementary Class
6 to 11 months of age
You and your pup made it to Elementary School! 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. Puppy Elementary 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.
“It is in my puppy contract! Each family must work with a trainer to make sure that my puppy and the family get off to the best possible start. I'm so impressed with WDU's knowledge, teaching style and manner that I recommend them to all my parents.”
-Chris Prentiss, Breeder/Owner-Sweetgrass Havanese
