COVID-19 Group Class & Private Lesson Update: Staff will be wearing masks. We will work to maintain social distancing and limit in the extreme interactions between people, teaching from a distance and modeling techniques. Class participants are not mandated to wear masks by may if it is their preference. We may limit class to one person per puppy/dog so that social space is easier to maintain. This will be handled on an as needed basis. We will do all we can to meet you where you are. Watch for future updates.

Puppy Class – Athens, GA @ Pet Supplies Plus
Jun 17 @ 12:00 am – Dec 31 @ 12:00 am
Puppy Class - Athens, GA @ Pet Supplies Plus | Athens | Georgia | United States
Get your puppy off to a bright start. We offer support for all facets puppy raising with the flexibility your family deserves!

About this Event

COVID-19 Update: Staff will be wearing masks. We will work to maintain social distancing and limit physical interactions between people, teaching from a distance and modeling techniques. Class participants are not mandated to wear masks but may if it is their preference. We may limit class to one person per puppy so that social space is easier to maintain. This will be handled on an as-needed basis. We will do all we can to meet you where you are. Watch for future updates.

We already had the best puppy class in town, and now we have the most flexible, too!

This class is focused on early puppy development. You can join as soon as your puppy is 10 weeks old and has had two rounds of vaccine. You may continue until your puppy is 16 weeks old.

In the past, class was at a static day and time, but with the new space at Pet Supplies Plus we have more flexibility, and now your family does too. This is the same great class but with many more options for meeting times. The class structure remains similar–a different lesson each week of the month–but it will be offered at a variety of times and days so you have the choice to get help when it works best for you! You can take each lesson as often as you like in order to focus on what’s best for your family.

We also offer tiers of support so you can get as much or as little support as will best suit your family and puppy.

GOOD: In-Person Puppy Class. There are a variety of class times that allow you to come to class when it works for you. You will reserve your spot in the class time via Calendly. $150

BETTER: In-Person Puppy Class PLUS 90 Days to the Perfect Puppy, our on-demand, video based puppy rearing program. It includes tips, tricks, a 90 day training plan, activity logs to make house training easier and help reduce mouthing and biting, and a whole host of additional support. The basic membership includes enrollment in a dedicated subscribers group where you can post video, photos and questions. When you are a member of 90 Days to the Perfect Puppy, you are a member of a greater community of support. $225 (Regular price: $279)

BEST: In-Person Puppy Class PLUS 90 Days to the Perfect Puppy PLUS an hour of private instruction (we can break it up into two 30-minute sessions or one hour, we’re flexible) in the store. This is the best plan as you get all of the advantages of each program plus one-on-one time with an instructor focusing on you and your puppy’s specific needs. $325 (Regular price: $409)

Why does the ticket price above indicate that it’s free? We’re leveraging many of the cool features of Eventbrite except for their fee-collection one. Why? ‘Cause they charge extra for that. And, we’re trying to keep your costs down by keeping our costs down.

How often & when will we meet? 

Sign up for the class times that work for you once you’ve registered for class.

  • Sit/Down/Rollover/Grooming & Handling: The second week of the month

WHAT TO BRING:

It serves as a starting point for any training you will do or as a stand-alone class.

It will give you a whole new understanding of your dog and the importance of your relationship with him or her.
