Puppy Training Preschool
Got a New Puppy?
Puppy training begins the moment you bring your new puppy home. The first 16 weeks of a puppy’s life is the most critical. It is in this period that most puppies can develop up to 90% of their attitudes toward people, other animals and their environment.
Get your pup started right! Every year more than 5 million pets are euthanized in this country, mostly by shelters who cannot place all the unwanted pets. Most dogs brought to a shelter are there because they got off to a bad start. Our pup preschool program was established to help reduce this statistic and assist you in raising a well mannered family pet.
Puppy preschool is designed to teach owners to better understand their puppy’s needs, establish effective communication, curb behavior problems and show owners how to properly socialize their new puppy.
This course is for puppies 7-16 weeks old. (If your puppy is older than 16 weeks, but is very shy please call he may benefit greatly from attending preschool) Please note while we accept any breed or mixed breed of dog for puppy preschool, all puppies must be healthy and have proof of all required vaccinations.
Our Puppy Preschool consists of one private puppy consultation and three weekly group classes. Cost is $59
Can’t attend the weekly classes? That’s ok we can still help with a Private Puppy Consultation for $25.
You will receive one private consultation, an informational packet, and three puppy group class sessions. Upon completion of our preschool program, your dog will be better prepared to participate in formal obedience training. The cost of puppy preschool may be applied toward a basic obedience group class or residency program. Its like getting preschool for free or a basic obedience group class for half price. What a deal! Call us at 269-465-OBEY(6239) to make arrangements to enroll your puppy.
Initial Private Puppy Consultation
The first step in Stay and Obey’s Puppy Preschool enrollment process is to call and schedule your one-on-one private puppy consultation with our certified trainer.
Since all breeds were bred for different qualities and have varying personalities, this private consultation will allow our trainer to evaluate your puppy’s personality type and temperament. Our trainer will be able to offer you direction on raising your puppy’s personality type, breed, and temperament. During this consultation we will also offer behavior counseling in regards to house training, play biting, chewing, jumping up, walking on a leash, and answer any other questions you may have regarding your puppy.
You will also be provided with an informational packet full of material that will further assist you at home. After your private puppy consultation, you and your new puppy will be invited to join our weekly group. (Puppy consultations do not have to come before group should your schedule not allow for it)
Can’t attend a group class and just need some help with the basics of potty training, play biting, chewing etc. no problem, Private Puppy Consultations are available for $25.00..
Through the guidance of our trainer and the participation of other puppy owners, you will learn a great deal about socialization, confidence building, proper handling, basic problem solving, and other owner educational topics.
At puppy preschool you will also learn confidence building techniques to help your puppy attain positive experiences. Our weekly confidence building exercises will help to further establish the critical communication and trust that is necessary for a well mannered family pet. You will be taught proper introduction techniques for items such as vacuum cleaners, wheel chairs, noise making items and more.
Owners are taught the importance of early socialization to aid in Puppy’s development in forming opinions about people and dogs.
Owner Educational Topics
Each week there will be new topics covered that will help you better understand your puppy. Also at this time the trainer will answer any questions that you may have concerning your puppy.
