The Puppy Package
Our most popular option for new puppy parents, the Puppy Package includes everything you need to start off on the right paw! You'll get the three basics classes (Puppy Kindergarten, Basic Manners, and Advanced Manners) as well as a 30 minute private. This one-on-one session is for any questions you might have or problems that pop up. We recommend waiting until after you've finished Puppy Kindergarten to schedule this private since the most frequently asked questions are addressed in class.
$450 for three group classes, one 30-minute private, and the Puppy Starter Kit (a $500 value)
Frequently Asked Questions:
Should I take Puppy Kindergarten or Basic Manners?
If your puppy is 4 months or younger on the class start date, you should enroll into a puppy class first. If your puppy is over 4 months old when the class begins, you should start with Basic Manners.
Can more than one person come?
Of course! If you bring children under the age of 12, we recommend bringing something to keep them occupied.
What do I need to start class?
Your puppy needs a minimum of 2 sets of vaccinations before you can attend a group class.
Do I need to enroll online or can I sign up and pay when the class starts?
Please sign up ahead of time to reserve your spot. If you prefer not to pay online, you can also register over the phone or in person during our regular business hours. Our classes typically fill up and we can not guarantee that there will be space available on the day the class starts.
I'm having trouble registering online. Why can't I enroll?
Puppy Kindergarten has to be paid for through either the single class or the Puppy Package before you can enroll in the class. Please purchase one of the available pricing options before enrolling.
What do I need to bring to class?
Please bring your pup's vaccination records to your first class. Your puppy should have on a flat collar or a harness with a 6′ leash. You will also need a bag of small treats, a clicker, and a treat pouch- all of these are provided as part of the Puppy Starter Kit that you'll receive at your first class! We recommend bringing doggy bags in case your dog needs to do his business. If you forget them, we do keep those handy at our doggy station near the grass area.
