The focus of puppy class is the safety and well being of your new puppy. We take this relationship very seriously yet have as much fun as we can in the learning process. Each week you will learn 2 new training tools and there will be a review of the previous week’s lessons and active small tests to continually see where and how you are doing. We take into account the fact that all puppies and people learn at different paces so the classes are kept very small and personal so everyone’s needs are addressed. We intensely explore canine wellness and psychology in these classes so you have a clear understanding of the pet that you now share your life with. In 8 small weeks we will explore the full extent of puppy training and ownership so you and your dog can understand and enjoy a safe long relationship. We also make ourselves available to you for questions and concerns during the lifetime of your dog. Your dog is our dog and we enjoy each and everyone of you more that you will ever know.

 CLASSROOM ATTENDANCE INFORMATION:

Here at Connective Training we have recognized that training is progressive and attendance is extremely important to you and your dogs’ success. Please be fair to yourself and your dog by signing up for classes only when the time is right for the both of you. Missing classes will put you behind and make you feel very uncomfortable.

The education and instruction given each week helps build understanding and balance for the relationship between you and your dog.

We start out simple and each week we build on this with new techniques and new information so everyone can have success in their training experience. If at the end of the 6 or 8 weeks you are still experiencing challenges, we encourage you to book a private session in order to easily address your very specific needs. Lots of people return to the same class or advanced classes in order to really be comfortable with what they have learnt. Every dog and every person will learn in their own time and space and we are always happy to see you here again. Never ever underestimate the value of returning to class and know that no class is the exact same as the last. We have witnessed amazing results from people and their dogs that struggled through the first set of classes only to become the class star. Never ever give up on your dog and realize that it takes between 3000-6000 repetitions in order to create a perfect behavior. Let us support you to comfortably gain success with your dog and allow yourself all the time you need to feel that you have the tools to move forward without us.

Here at Connective Training we train all breeds and all ages. Extremely disruptive or challenging dogs may be asked to work in the back room with a private instructor until the dog calms down. If this continues we may shift you over to personal sessions in order to give you the care and attention that you need and deserve. Classes are kept to a maximum of 5 dogs in the adult class and in 6 puppies in puppy class in order for you to have the best learning experience possible.

WE CAN’T GIVE AWAY ALL OF OUR SECRETS BUT IN CLASS WE WILL WORK ON:

  • Emergency commands
  • Back away commands
  • Indoor and outdoor work
  • Door family and guest manners
  • Impulse control

My favorite quotes in class are “now I understand” and “that was fun”. These are music to my ears!!
