PUPPY FOUNDATIONS

This class is suited for new puppies that are 8 weeks - 4.5 months of age at the start of class. Puppies must have a minimum of one set of core vaccinations and first deworming at least 7 days prior to the second class (the first class is a human-only orientation).  Proof of vaccinations will be required.  Puppies must also be up to date on their vaccine schedule throughout the 6 week course.

Our Puppy Foundations course will focus on the importance of safe socialization during this critical window of time in your puppy’s life.  We will teach you how to properly introduce your puppy to a variety of things that they will encounter in their lifetime including new situations, people, dogs, different substrates, sounds, and novel items.  Learn how to move at your pup’s pace, keeping the experience positive and enjoyable for your new companion.  Our class will include gentle body handling & conditioning exercises to help prepare your pup for stress free vet visits and husbandry procedures.  We will go over how to prevent and address problematic yet normal behaviours such as puppy biting, inappropriate chewing, jumping, barking, resource guarding, potty training mishaps and crate training challenges.  Body language, appropriate play, and an introduction to some basic cues that encourage good manners will also be covered.

A maximum of 4 students per class ensures plenty of one on one time with the instructor.

First class is a human only orientation. No puppies present please.

BASIC MANNERS

This class is suited for our Puppy Foundations graduates or young dogs age 5 months & up.  All dogs must be up to date on all vaccinations at the time of registration (titers accepted).  Dogs showing fear or aggression towards humans and/or dogs are not suitable for a group class setting.  Please contact MUTTS UP for private lessons.

Our Basic Manners course will introduce you to the world of clicker training.  Find out how animals learn and how you can apply the science!  We will utilize methods such as capturing, luring, and shaping to teach our dog new behaviours.  Learn how to add verbal and hand signal cues for sit, down, and stand.  You will learn how to get behaviours such as owner engagement, response to name, manners around food, stay/wait, targeting, settling on a mat, coming when called, polite walking, and leave it.  How to read dog body language, addressing leash manners and greeting etiquette will also be covered.

A maximum of 4 students per class ensures plenty of one on one time with the instructor.

First class is a human only orientation where we will work on clicker training mechanics without the dogs present. 1 clicker included for each dog/handler team!
