At PAWS-ITIVE PUPPIES, we offer puppy training classes in Ajax and Oshawa. Puppies begin learning as soon as they arrive in your home. Are they developing good habits or bad? Let us help you train your puppy before problem behaviour is established. PAWS-ITIVE PUPPIES gives you the tools to assist in shaping your puppy’s attitude in a gentle, positive way. Many problems begin at a young age and, if left untreated, can become serious. Waiting until puppies are six months old, larger in size, with an attitude of a “teenager” and hormones surfacing can
make training a challenge for most pet owners.
In our classes, your puppy will learn self-confidence through socializing with other puppies and families. We use only scientifically proven training techniques that will help you understand your puppy’s behaviour and teach him/her to be a happy family pet and good canine citizen.
Topics covered include:
Sit, down, stand, using verbal commands and hand signals, “come”, “drop it”, polite door greeting and passing strangers in the street, attention/focus exercises, calming techniques, how to evaluate a well designed dog toy, crate training, tips for good puppy/child relationships, solutions for nipping and biting and dealing with problem behaviours like jumping up or chasing pant legs. We provide you with problem solving skills when your dog doesn’t do what you want and help you learn how to motivate him/her to want to work for and respect you. Each night ends with a puppy play period. We have lots of fun — play games and hold a Best Puppy Trick Contest on graduation night.
Each week, you take home a written information package regarding the material covered in that session. A graduation diploma is awarded on completion of the course.
