  • THE PLACE FOR DOG SPORTS IN INDIANAPOLIS
Puppy Classes

My dog is less than one year old. Our puppy program consists of: 1) Puppy class then 2) Fundamental Obedience and/or Canine Good Citizen.

Puppy

Teach your puppy the essentials he/she needs to develop into that dog you have always wanted. Puppies learn to behave and pay attention with other dogs nearby. They learn about their bodies and all the fun they can have climbing, jumping, crawling, sliding, and exploring. Puppies will also learn the fundamentals of good behavior and manners–sit, down, come, walk with me, drop it, and leave it. Best of all you will start to have fun and enjoy your new little buddy. And send your pup on its way to becoming a confident well mannered dog.

For those of you wanting to start PreAgility or any other dog sport, please understand Puppy classes are not designed to prepare you and your dog to start a beginner dog sport class.

Classes

This class will meet once a week on Tuesdays at either 6:30 or 7:30 or on Saturday mornings at 10:00 am for 8 weeks/classes and costs $110.00.

Basic Obedience

My dog is more than one year old and has not been trained.

Basic Obedience

Prerequisites: 12 months old or older. Up-to-date Rabies vaccinations and other vaccinations as recommended by your veterinarian.

In this class we help new (or seasoned) dog owners teach their dog the essential fundamentals for a well behaved companion dog. Critical to a well-behaved companion dog are good manners – not jumping on guests, coming when called and basic obedience commands (sit, down, come, walk with me), name recognition and good dog behavior. Emphasis is placed on reward based training methods where the dog receives a food ”paycheck” when he does the right thing. Clicker Training is emphasized but not required. Clicker training helps quickly and easily teach the skills learned in this basic obedience class. By offering your dog a food reward, and a special sound to tell him he’s done something right, You will learn to communicate with your pet in a way the dog can understand and react positively to.

Please think carefully before you enroll in a class with your reactive dog — a dog who barks, pulls and gets over-excited when encountering another dog or person. A class of 8 dogs and 8 or more new people is usually too much. We can help you with private lessons. Just contact us about private lessons. We can prepare you to enjoy a class with us!

Classes

This class will meet once a week for 8 weeks/classes and costs $110.00. The class meets on Tuesday evenings alternating approximately every 4 weeks meeting at either 6:30 or 7:30 pm. Email or call for the time and date of our next session.
