About this Class:
Is your puppy too old for Puppy Kindergarten, but you don’t want to put him in an adult class? Another option is the Adolescent Dog Class.
Start training your adolescent dog in basic good manners like sit, come, loose-leash walking, wait, leave it, attention, settle; learn how to deal with typical adolescent challenges; and practice training exercises, like “drop it” and handling, to help prevent future fear and aggression issues.
Adolescent Dog graduates can then go into Puppy First Grade if they are under 1 year old or have the instructor’s permission.
We use only positive methods – no choke, prong, or electronic collars. Training is fun for both you and your dog!
Instructors: Lisa Arant, Sarah Stoycos, or Jean Silverman
