Puppy Class 2020 – Athens, GA @ Pet Supplies Plus
Aug 2 2020 @ 1:00 pm – Jul 18 2021 @ 2:00 pm

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.

Until group classes open up again locally, and for those who are concerned about COVID-19 Risk, please consider joining the 90 Days to the Perfect Puppy program. This is a comprehensive puppy raising program that includes on demand video lessons, membership in a Facebook subscribers group with lots of interaction, a 90 day training plan, lots of support documents like activity sheets and tips. The basic program is $129 and you can choose to upgrade to group online coaching for 12 WEEKS for an additional $97 at any time. Of course, we are happy to help you privately as well either in person (with appropriate precautions) or via zoom.us. Regular private lesson rates apply.

 

How much does the class cost?The cost of this class is $100.00 for cash or check. If you prefer to pay with debit, credit or PayPal, the price is $110, please let us know ahead of time so we can invoice you and you can pay prior to class. 

Why does the ticket price above indicate that it’s free?

We’re leveraging many of the cool features of Eventbrite. But, not their fee collection one. Why? ‘Cause they charge for that. And, we’re trying to keep your costs down by keeping our costs down.

Embrace who they are and get them off to a bright start.

We are proud to be teaching the best puppy class in the area… The class is fun and entertaining and we are able to incorporate whatever we need to customize for each and every group. Handlers learn how to manage their puppy’s arousal and the end of each class is an open question time where staff sits down with each and every owner to see how progress is proceeding with each family and their puppy.

  • Socialization when it matters most
  • Quiet Holds
  • Bite Inhibition (soft mouth)

How often & when will we meet?

You can start as soon as your pup is 10 weeks old and has 4 rounds of vaccine. There is no beginning or end to this class… you take the individuals lessons in whatever order they happen on the calendar.

Puppy Class 2020 – Athens, GA @ Pet Supplies Plus
Sep 13 2020 @ 1:00 pm – Aug 29 2021 @ 2:00 pm

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.

Until group classes open up again locally, and for those who are concerned about COVID-19 Risk, please consider joining the 90 Days to the Perfect Puppy program. This is a comprehensive puppy raising program that includes on demand video lessons, membership in a Facebook subscribers group with lots of interaction, a 90 day training plan, lots of support documents like activity sheets and tips. The basic program is $129 and you can choose to upgrade to group online coaching for 12 WEEKS for an additional $97 at any time. Of course, we are happy to help you privately as well either in person (with appropriate precautions) or via zoom.us. Regular private lesson rates apply.

 

How much does the class cost?The cost of this class is $100.00 for cash or check. If you prefer to pay with debit, credit or PayPal, the price is $110, please let us know ahead of time so we can invoice you and you can pay prior to class. 

Why does the ticket price above indicate that it’s free?

We’re leveraging many of the cool features of Eventbrite. But, not their fee collection one. Why? ‘Cause they charge for that. And, we’re trying to keep your costs down by keeping our costs down.

Embrace who they are and get them off to a bright start.

We are proud to be teaching the best puppy class in the area… The class is fun and entertaining and we are able to incorporate whatever we need to customize for each and every group. Handlers learn how to manage their puppy’s arousal and the end of each class is an open question time where staff sits down with each and every owner to see how progress is proceeding with each family and their puppy.

  • Open to the whole family
  • Socialization when it matters most
  • Quiet Holds
  • Bite Inhibition (soft mouth)
  • Eliminate Mouthing
  • Basic behaviors
  • Your puppy learns to work with you
  • Management of excitement
  • Operand methods are used to get behaviors
  • Get your puppy off to a bright start
  • Can be used with 90 Days to the Perfect Puppy – And participants qualify for the student special – 50% off

How often & when will we meet?

You can start as soon as your pup is 10 weeks old and has 4 rounds of vaccine. There is no beginning or end to this class… you take the individuals lessons in whatever order they happen on the calendar. Teams join each week… so some take the class following week 1,2,3,4 other do 2,3,4,1… we stay flexible so you don’t have to 🙂
