DOG TRAINING

Dog training has evolved in the last 30 years and with that, methods and knowledge about why dogs behave a certain way and how to train them without using force. Outdated and cruel methods of punishment, dominance, shock collars, choke chains are being replaced by a true knowledge of dog psychology and smart, gentle ways to get the behavior that we like. As dog owners, trainers and behaviorists we believe in educating the dog's owners on how to raise and develop the most mentally healthy, happy, relaxed, grounded and stable dog possible. We use only POSITIVE, scientifically proven methods to train your dog. Using counter conditioning, desensitization, rewarding right choices and reinforcing them, as well as managing environment we are creating happy, balanced dogs and happy owners. We thrive to be up-to-date on everything that is going on in a training community, attend seminars, courses and read books on dog behavior and training. To all our clients and to the public we will offer not just our services but our resources as well.

**Rescue dogs are special. So are their families! Learning Pawsibilities specializes in second chances for dogs rescued from shelters and breed-specific rescue groups.

*We offer free training classes to rescue groups and discounted classes and support for families that adopt.

FUNGILITY - Four week intro to agilitly

  • $100

Fun, non competition class where you and your dog will practice basic obedience, learn the basics of obstacle management (tunnel, A frame, teeter, jumps and weave poles) and development of control and confidence. Great for dogs of all ages. You will advance at your own pace and graduate to the next level when you and your dog are ready to move up.

 

PUPPY KINDERGARTEN - for dogs 3 months to 5 months of age

  • 6 week duration $140

We invite puppies as soon as they have 2 rounds of vaccines to join this class. Starting socialization as soon as possible is really important for puppy social skills. If you wait until they are 4 or 5 months old you would have missed that critical window of opportunity when these interactions have profound ramification on your puppy’s mental development.

Puppy socialization means meeting new people, experiencing the touch of a stranger’s hand, smelling novel smells, hearing unfamiliar sounds, encountering new places and, this is critical, doing so in a calm, caring, positive atmosphere so that your puppy takes away from this experience the understanding that people, dogs, and places are inherently good, that good things happen when humans and other dogs are near, that there really is no need to fear.

CURRICULUM: House training (crate training, potty training, addressing nipping, jumping, barking), Sit, Down, Stay, Place, Leave it, Come, Leash walking


We will strive to keep your puppy safe and in the good health by making sure that all the dogs that attend our school or boarding are temperament tested and fully vaccinated.

*The entire facility and all equipment are thoroughly sanitized with veterinary-grade disinfectants immediately prior to all puppy classes.
 

*All puppies are required to have verified vaccinations commensurate with age.

**We require that puppies who attend the Learning Pawsibilities center to not visit dog parks or dog day cares until they have received full vaccinations.
