Trick Puppy

7 Weeks

Think of Trick Puppy like kindergarten … a place where your puppy will learn essential skills in a fun environment, but with the opportunity to deepen the bond between you and your puppy! Trick Puppy classes are designed for all breeds of dogs 3 - 12 months of age. We teach important basic obedience commands such as Sit, Stay and Come, as well as introduce a new fun trick each week - and we will even have a first brief introduction to agility. The course will teach you luring techniques while adding in positive reinforcement, building the foundation for all future training. And you have the chance to earn a Novice Trick Dog Title at the end of the 7 week course, starting your puppy training with a bang! 


Requirements: Any dog age 3-12 months. No previous training required.

S.T.A.R. Puppy

The S.T.A.R. Puppy classes are designed for all breeds of puppies 3 - 10 months of age.

Obedience commands consist of: sit, down, loose leash walking, no jumping up and to come when called. Each class begins with a group discussion on an informative subject such as nail trimming, toys, crate training, or skin and ear care. Introduction to Puppy Agility Obstacle course is presented as well!

Puppies that successfully complete this class can earn the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy distinction and will receive a certificate from the AKC and be listed in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy records at the AKC.

Puppy Kindergarten

5 Weeks

Are you eager to train and socialize your new puppy? Have we got the cutest class for you! 


Puppies who are well socialized grow up to be confident, well-adjusted adults. The very fact that you’re looking for a puppy class means you’re off to the best of all possible starts for your new best friend!


Join other people and their puppies ages 3 to 10 months for enrichment activities and lessons in how to be a good puppy, such as:

  • Crate training
  • Bite inhibition
  • How to behave around trash cans, kitchen counters, and other people’s food.


Each kindergarten class includes fun, age-appropriate lessons and recess in our puppy playground. 

Deepen your working relationship with your dog, learn new tricks, build your puppy’s confidence, improve learning skills, and set a strong foundation for obedience, agility, and daily life as the best dog ever!


This class is not AKC STAR Puppy or Basic Obedience, but it will help you prepare your puppy for these classes and many more happy adventures!
