Puppy Beginners Class

Classes are typically available In-Person and through Zoom.

We teach through fun exercises and training games, and use motivational, reinforcing methods.  Each week there are brand new skills to learn, as well as building on the reliability of exercises from past weeks.  We have loads of fun, and you can expect to learn the following when you attend the course.  All pups are welcome to join the free Puppy Walk (When it resumes after the pandemic) at Abington Park to put their new skills into practice (and show off a bit!).
