Puppy Night

Wednesday Night's  6:00 - 7:00 P.M.
First Week Of April To Last Week Of October

Weather Permitting - Outdoor Only

\\\\\\\\\\  Call for more details  //////////

This is for puppies from 3 - 6 months old that are at least mid-way through their vaccinations and otherwise healthy.
This is very similar to puppy class without the organized structure.       Puppy Night is merely designed to allow for the ever important "Early Socialization" of your puppy to other puppies of similar age as well as other people.         Harley Boy is also present to assist in teaching doggie manners and correct canine social behavior.        I'm available to keep things under control and to give advice on raising your puppy.
This is a very informal event in a very informal environment.      If the weather allows, we let the puppies play in the drive and if not, we go into the garage where there's heat.     Now that we've extended Puppy Night into the spring and hopefully into the summer, we'll be gathering in the back yard where we have access to multiple pieces of agility equipment to provide additional exercise and begin working through simple leadership exercises and relationship exercises.        I will get you started on basic obedience commands and constantly caution you against trying to push your puppies training too soon.
This is a lot of fun for you and your puppy as well as very informative.
Take advantage of this opportunity now as it may be canceled without notice in favor of Puppy Class

This was originally intended for winter time only when outdoor classes were impractical.     Now that all of our classes are outdoor, we'll be offering this throughout the warm season until further notice due to the many requests we've had and my belief in the need for early, proper socialization.

Participation in Puppy NIght meetings on a regular basis and following the curriculm put forth automatically exposes you and your pup to the requirements that must be met to satisfy the new """AKC S.T.A.R. PUPPY PROGRAM"""" which is like a  Canine Good Citizen Evaluation for puppies.....

Basic Obedience
Basic obedience is for the dog and owner that are not looking for anything other that the five basic commands that all dogs and their owners should master in as informal of a setting as possible.     As part of learning to properly execute the commands you'll also be exposed to insights into how your dog sees the world around him and how to eliminate existing bad habits as well as keep other bad habits from forming.
Four private sessions include the following:
Attention / Release
Sit
Down
Stay
Come
&
Heel
______________________________

Obedience Level 1, 2 & 3 are intended to be utilized as a package deal or at the very least, as three consecutive phases following closely to one another.    The session time and number vary slightly since, as a package deal, many of the listed behaviors  are taught at the same time and not necessarily in the listed order.     The speed and order that the different commands are introduced depends entirely on my evaluation of you and your dog so as to give you & your dog the most through training possible without overloading either one of you.          The best learning environment is a quick one but not so fast as to cause confusion.

Obedience Level 1

          The National Council on Pet Population has examined the reasons why dog owners relinquish their dogs.    The study states, "When all reasons for relinquishment  that  dealt with any type of behavior problem are grouped together, then behavior problems were the most common reason dogs were given up".      It is for this reason, that we believe effective training is so critical.     A successful training program is paramount in helping to ensure that your dog will enjoy a permanent home as a valued member of the family.
