Puppy Kindergarten Class  

7 classes - 1 hour each (with off-leash playtime throughout) - $199

Saturdays @ 12:15pm 
The puppy classes are similar to the basic class with time set aside for socialization and covering husbandry behaviors. Off leash play during the class is worked into the training program, so your puppy can socialize and learn at the same time, as well as, playing around with a jump and tunnel. Husbandry behaviors are added in which get your dog used to being handled, which is especially helpful for those visits to the vet. Start training as soon as you bring your new puppy home. When a pup is between the ages of 7 and 16 weeks he is learning and absorbing the most information during what is called the Socialization period. Of course an old dog can learn new tricks, but the sooner you start the better! Read the blog on why you should start training early.

Intermediate Obedience Class

Tara's intermediate course raises the criteria for all basic behaviors. We work on adding distractions and adding duration to our stay behavior, while having fun. There are games and tests added into the class to test the level of each dog and owner, but all with a playful spin. We also play around with agility equipment and teach tricks throughout the class. It's encouraged that before signing up for the intermediate course that you go through a round of basic obedience. Otherwise, clients must confirm their dog knows sit/stay, down, come, heel and leave it prior to joining.

Tara works with all positive methods. She uses food as a main motivator along with toys, depending on the dog's interests. In training, you will learn how to reward behaviors with simple, daily life rewards which do not include food and how to maintain those behaviors after your training is finished. All owners bring a variety of treats to class, along with their dog's bed & favorite toy or chewy.
Many owners have learned the way of positive training with Tara and have seen how rewarding the outcome can be. Tara delivers an effective, positive approach to dog training, which illustrates results.  She gives every owner the tools necessary to becoming a kind and benevolent leader in the eyes of their dog.
