Teaching your dog the Basics of Obedience is more than training tricks.  It is building a working relationship with your dog making you more worthy of listening to when you ask your dog to stop barking or leave the garbage etc.  It makes everyday life with your dog more enjoyable.

“Pup-Ease” Preschool:   A SOCIALIZATION class for puppies between the ages of 12 and 16 weeks.  Emphasis is on safe, social skills amongst puppies and the other handlers (including children).  Coming when called is a focus as well as Sit, Down, Stand (both verbal and hand signals). Loose lead walking and Off lead Heeling are started.  Behaviour issues such as mouthing, jumping, digging, barking, housebreaking etc. are all addressed. For your pup’s safety, our facility is totally disinfected prior to the puppy classes each and every week to create a safe environment and still deal with these critical social weeks of your pup's young life in a safe, controlled environment.

Control is now expanded to off lead work using a gradual progression method. Interesting new commands or variances of older commands and exercises are introduced to continue to challenge your dog.  With more control we can now begin to dabble with training games in this level.
