Fieldstone Animal Inn is committed to improving the lives of canines and the families that care for these wonderful animals. Training not only makes for a happier home, but a healthier, more secure pet. However, training your pet without the proper techniques can be stressful on you and your loved ones. Let us help! We offer puppy socialization classes and group training classes for all ages.
Puppy Socialization Classes For puppies 8 weeks to 6 months of age.
Puppies learn all the time, from everything around them so let's make sure they learn to socialize well! The first few weeks can make a huge difference in your puppy's training and socialization.
There is a critical window from 8-14 weeks for socialization. This important time in a puppy's life can help shape how they will be as adults in dealing with new people, places, meeting dogs, and handling new experiences.
Puppy Socialization is an unstructured opportunity for your puppy to play with other puppies. There is a trainer available to help the puppies socialize appropriately and to answer questions for you! This is great preparation for group training classes and many people choose to do both classes at once.
Puppies must be vet checked for wellness prior to the session and have a recent negative fecal with proof of results. Puppies do not need to have received all of their shots to attend. They simply need to be under a vet's care.
Group Training Classes For friendly dogs of any age.
We will cover all the basics in these classes, and then some. Obedience dog training for sit, stay, and down will be the easy part. We cover all the hard things too, including to come when you call, stop jumping, barking, mouthing, and more, and how to walk calmly on the leash, no matter what distractions there are.
During class you will learn critical information about dog communication and how important it is for you to be the one in charge. We teach you simple yet highly effective exercises resulting in dramatic shifts in your dog's behavior. It goes without saying that you will improve your skills and confidence as a handler. And the best part of all? You get to:
- Create the relationship with your dog you have always dreamed of having.
- Have a well mannered dog wherever you go.
- Own a dog you are proud of, not embarrassed by.
How Are These Classes Unique?
These aren't like any other group dog training classes.
- You receive personalize attention and tips to resolve your dog's behavioral problems.
- You can begin right away, as long as long as there is space in the class.
- Each class is structured around the needs of your dog. Rather than following a pre-set curriculum, we give you exactly what you need each week to make progress.
People who join our group classes get results, often for the first time ever. Simple exercises, easy to understand explanations, and perfect analogies make progress inevitable. Bring your sense of humor and your willingness to do homework.
