Do you Offer Puppy Training Classes?

Yes, we offer our puppy training classes all across the Denver area. All our puppy classes come with private in-home dog training lessons. Whether you’re seeking puppy training or dog training, there’s no need to drive anywhere or deal with the over-crowded classrooms anymore! Dogs learn much better when they’re able to focus and practice in their own home. Because these are private lessons, our trainers are also able to personalize your lessons which makes us able to produce faster results with long-lasting positive behavior.

What is Included in Your Puppy Training Classes? 

We offer two of the best selling puppy training classes in Denver, our Obedience Training 1 - on - 1 Course and our Obedience Training - Online Course. These private classes both include all of the important foundation behaviors and skills you’ll need to teach your puppy (sit, stay, come, leave it & more). These lessons also include essential tips for socializing your puppy, creating a strong bond with them, and how to set them up to be a perfect companion for life. In addition, the two most sought after lessons by new pet parents: potty training a puppy and crate training a puppy, will be covered in these courses. 

When Should I Start Puppy Training Classes?

You can start formal training lessons at as early as 9-11 weeks old. Puppies who start learning obedience and manners at an early age are much less likely to develop behavior problems down the road. It’s important to start setting rules and expectations for them early on so that they have consistent guidance through their early development period. Remember that your puppy is always learning at this age whether you're purposely teaching them or not, so be clear about the behaviors you don't like as well as the behaviors you do.

How to Start Training Your New Puppy

You should start training your new puppy the rules of the house as soon as you bring them home. This includes where to go potty and how to use their mouth appropriately. Formal training can begin as soon as they're 9 weeks old. Bringing home a new puppy is such an exciting experience! They can bring us so much happiness; but poor behavior can often leave us feeling overwhelmed. Puppies are often easily distracted making training on your own a challenge. This is where our trainers come in to save the day. Our trainers have extensive experienced in managing puppy behavior. We know exactly how to get the most out of a training session with your puppy. We use all of the tips and tricks we’ve acquired over the years to give you the fastest, most effective training results. While puppies can sometimes be difficult to train, the accomplishment you’ll feel once they’ve completed all of their obedience training is unsurpassed! In 6 weeks we can turn your unruly puppy into a well behaved doggie citizen. Our courses are specifically designed with puppies in mind and our trainers are well versed in the best practices of teaching brand new pups.

Positive Dog Training FAQs
What are Positive Reinforcement Training Methods?

Positive reinforcement training uses scientifically backed animal learning theory. The main learning theories used are classical conditioning and operant conditioning. Classical conditioning is the act of pairing a certain thing with a positive association. Through operant conditioning, behaviors are learned by repeatedly rewarding desired behaviors. Once the dog understands that doing a behavior earns them a reward, they continue to perform the behavior. Alternatively, undesirable behaviors are prevented and managed using force-free techniques in order to reduce their frequency and then extinguish them altogether. 

How Positive Reinforcement Training Works

Positive reinforcement training focuses on building a strong relationship between you and your dog. Creating this bond results in your dog respecting you and listening to you because they truly want to. Positive reinforcement training uses praise and treats to reward your dog for doing something you ask them to do.

How We Use Positive Reinforcement Training Methods

Training should be a top priory for any new puppy or dog in your home! We use positive reinforcement training to help build a strong relationship and bond. Using this form of obedience training gets your life together started off on the right paw. We use positive training methods to teach your dog new skills, how to handle new situations, and how to listen to you. These training methods have been scientifically proven to be more successful than other teaching styles. We never use force, fear, or intimidation to train. All of our lessons are filled with praise and fun, so training is enjoyable! We strive to make training with your pup a great bonding experience.
