The exciting Puppy Basics 102 Class by Your Dog And You is designed for puppies between the ages of fourteen (14) and twenty four (24) weeks at the start of the class, and is held in our beautiful training facility in Mantua NJ. This six week course is designed to help you learn more about your pup and give you the knowledge to help raise a well-mannered companion. In order to be the best dog owners we can be, we need to be open to learning the dynamics of their brain and behavior. You and your puppy will not only learn valuable lessons such as potty training, socialization and polite play, but we will also teach them the most important basic obedience commands to keep them polite and safe!

Some of the things you and your puppy will learn include:

  • Potty Training Overview
  • Crate training and its' importance
  • Basic commands such as “Come”, "Sit", and "Down"
  • Polite play; teaching “Take it”, “Drop”, and “Enough”
  • Proper socialization
  • Addressing jumping and mouthy behaviors
  • Polite Feedings
  • Chewing; Nutrition
  • Exposure to different surfaces and objects
  • Puppy playtime included in all classes!

***Curriculum is subject to change as we learn what you would like to learn during the meet and greet with the trainer.***

What You Will Need For Class:

  • Four to six-foot leather or nylon leash - no flexi or retractable leashes, please.
  • Flat collar (buckle or clip). Harnesses are fine. If you choose to use a harness, a front clip harness or rope harness is preferable.
  • A bowl and water for your pup
  • Soft, small, high-value dog treats work best. Chopped boiled chicken breast makes for a wonderful, inexpensive and “clean” treat. Check to be sure your pup loves it!
  • Small toys (plush, tug or other) if your dog enjoys them as a reward
  • Chew bone for quiet time (only if easy to take away)
  • Mat for your puppy to lie on. (optional)
