Little Learners Class

Do you feel like you could benefit from a training class tailored for your pint-size pup’s needs? We offer dog training that is fun, easy to fit into your life, and ultimately works! Not only will we cover the basics, like ‘sit’, ‘down’ and ‘come,’ but we’ll also focus on training specific for your small dog – such as not sneaking out open doors and keeping all four little paws on the floor.

We will also help provide solutions for potty training, jumping up on guests, and appropriate socialization with new dogs, people, and more! We use real life scenarios so the skills you learn in class are easily transferred into your home and everyday life. This is a great class for dogs that are worried about bigger dogs or feel more comfortable around dogs their own size.

Dogs attending should be 4 months or older at the start of class. If your dog will be between 9 and 15 weeks when class begins, please sign up for Puppy Manners instead.
