Your Dog’s Friend is now offering both online and in-person Adolescent Dog classes. For in-person classes:
- Masks must be worn at all times
- Only one family member per dog
- Please review additional COVID-19 policies here
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!
We will be using Zoom for our online Adolescent Dog classes.
