Welcome to the

Primary School 101 Course

Turn your "problem pooch" into a Pawsitively Trained Dog

The Primary School 101 Course gets you started with everything you need to see instant behavior changes in your pup.

Have a dog who is wild on walks?

Have a dog who is an exuberant greeter?

Have a dog who is a door bolter, counter surfer, jumper, barker, puller, destructive chewer?

We will touch on all the skills needed to bring tranquility to your home and help you truly enjoy your canine companion. Impress your guests, receive compliments in public, and live with a puppy you're proud of.

Did you recently add an adult dog or puppy to your household?

This course is excellent for new additions to your family, since we will work on building a respectful, successful relationship between you and your new pup from the start.

Are you worried about the excessive vet bills, the house repair costs, or the liability associated with having an out of control dog?

Let's make life with your dog easy, peaceful, and pleasant. The small investment in a quality training program will save you thousands of dollars throughout the lifetime of your dog. Don't wait until there's an emergency before considering training! Start now and prevent problems in the future.

In this course, we will address:

  • Pulling on leash
  • Jumping for greeting
  • Barking at distractions
  • Adding basic obedience skills (sit/stay/down/etc)
  • Teaching a reliable "Come" cue
  • Creating polite behavior while you are busy cooking, cleaning, eating, working, watching TV, etc.
  • Encouraging appropriate social behavior with new people and dogs
  • Making leash walks more pleasant
  • Waiting patiently at the door and before getting out of the car
  • And so much more!

This is a great first course to get you started in a positive training program, it works well for dogs of any age, and it has no prerequisites! If you have a pup under 4 months old, check out the Puppy Pre-K prior to starting 101 for additional, puppy-specific training tools.
