Class Description: Adolescence is a transitional period that varies from pup to pup. During this stage your puppy will begin to “test” new boundaries (and you) and become more interested in other dog friends and what the environment has to offer. This class is shorter than your average six -week course since there are only 2 participants per class! Allowing us to move faster and deeper into all what you and your pup need to master.
Basic Obedience A Deux Express™ is here to help you maintain your adolescent social-graces and give you the know-how so that you can continue to reinforce the behaviors that you want in your dog. You will learn how to reward your dog for behaviors around the home and on “the go.” Special attention will be given to typical adolescent behavior such as: “selective-hearing” when it comes to leaving undesirable items, avoiding you at all cost, exuberance (jumping, mouthing, pulling on leash, and rough play with other dogs) lack of impulse control: dashing through doors, unable to sit/stay or down/stay when requested.
