Our Training Academy Classes

S.T.A.R. Puppy Class

S.T.A.R. Puppy is a new program from the AKC for puppies 2 to 6 months old designed to get them off to a good start and on track to becoming a Canine Good Citizen. It’s a fact that what your puppy learns during their first months is going to play a major role in what kind of adult dog you will have. This hands-on course covers all the basics, including socialization, basic obedience, and the keys to communicating with your new best friend! Class concludes with the S.T.A.R. Puppy Test, which tests your puppy’s new skills and readies you for more advanced obedience training.
Enrollment includes:

  • Orientation
  • 5 effective and fun training classes
  • A complimentary nose-to-tail examination with our expert veterinarians to ensure all puppies are at optimal health to begin class!
  • A clicker and training apron

Puppy Preschool 2

This is an all-new class for S.T.A.R. Puppy Preschool graduates who are ready to continue their obedience education. In this class, your puppy will continue to work on socialization and basic obedience skills, including down, sit, stay, and loose leash walking. In addition, we will guide you through the beginnings of adolescence.

Basic Obedience Class

In this class, you and your dog will work on basic on-leash obedience. Your dog will learn to walk nicely on-leash without pulling, to sit-stay, down-stay, come and go to their “place” on command, and to “leave it” when told to. Most importantly, they will learn how to work around other dogs! For dogs 7 months and older; no prior obedience experience is required.

Beyond Basic

In this class, you and your dog will continue to work on on-leash obedience. You will take the basic commands that your dog already knows to the next level, through distraction, distance and duration so your environment does not dictate whether your dog will listen. For dogs 7 months and older who have completed Basic Obedience.

Intermediate/Advanced Obedience

Please check back for future class dates

Once you and your dog have completed Beyond Basic or Puppy Preschool 2, it’s time to take your skills to the next level. You and your dog will practice high-level leave its, sit and down stays, and come over longer distances and through multiple distractions.

Tricks Class – Novice

Please check back for future class dates

Learning tricks is not only great mental exercise and a great way to burn energy – it’s fun! In this new AKC class, you and your dog learn playful and entertaining tricks to develop improved communication and earn the AKC Novice Trick Dogs Title. Learn more tricks to earn more titles! This is an advanced-level obedience class for anyone looking for a fun, challenging alternative to the traditional obedience class.
