Puppy Jr. High

Keep your teen pup challenged and listening to you!

This class is the next step for puppies between 8-10.5 months (at the start of class) after the successful completion of Puppy Elementary School  which is required. This is a series class with a fixed start and end date and is not swappable.

Junior High does not always have a playtime but we will be using long lines to practice “come” “touch” “leave it” and  “stay” with distractions and to get some energy out before we do the more focused exercises. Take Puppy Jr. High to increase the reliability of your dog’s behavior so that you can  use these skills when you’re out in the real world. Your teenager will work on walking politely, focus activities, tricks and come. You will learn how to make behaviors more reliable using behavior chaining, the Premack principle (also known as “grandma’s rule”) and the principles of fluency.

The class includes a free dog training clicker and an instant download of the 100+ page Ahimsa Dog Training Manual. You can also purchase a hard copy of the book at your class in Ballard.
