Training Academy

Four dogs of varying ages and sizes in a training class with owners including children of owners.

It can't always be fun and games at All about the Pup. Sometimes pups need a little help with being a good canine citizen and we are here to help! We are excited to offer group, private, and in-home dog training services to help you and your pup succeed. Our certified dog trainer has developed classes for every level of training and uses only positive reinforcement methods.

Classes offered:

Level I: Puppy Preschool
For puppies 10 weeks to 5 months of age. We go over the beginnings of basic obedience including sit, leash walking, coming when called, down, and stay. We also will discuss potty training tips, the basics of crate training your puppy and socializing.
Level I: Grade School
For dogs 5 months of age and older with little or no previous training. Similar to the puppy class but for older pups, we go over the beginnings of basic obedience including sit, leash walking, coming when called, down, stay, leave it and drop it. We also will work on socializing and introducing them to new environments.
Level II: High School
For graduates of Puppy Preschool or Grade School. We continue your dogs education by working on things like heeling, adding more distractions when asking them to sit, stay, or down. We also introduce them to a place cue where your pup goes to a designated spot and stays there until released.
Level III: University
For High School Graduates. We prepare them to take the AKC Canine Good Citizen test. Cues such as staying in place with distance and distractions, accepting friendly strangers and supervised separation are all part of this class.
