THE Dog Class

By Marie-Josée Gatian, Professional Dog Trainer, Behavioral Specialist

THE Dog Class paw logo.  Positive reinforcement dog training.Text Box: Puppy training is typically for dogs up to six months of age with no prior training.


During the program, owners will be given feedback and individual instruction from Marie-Josée regarding the most appropriate training techniques for their puppy. Techniques chosen are based on the dog's temperament, the progress the dog is making, and the dedication of the owner. Puppies and owners are treated on an individual basis. 

Typical basic obedience skills group classes are six weeks long, or are developed in three to four private sessions, depending on the amount of out-of-class time the owner commits to training.

Key topics include:

· Potty training

· Controlling nipping, biting and chewing

· Introduction to simple cues, such as sit, come and stay

· Loose leash walking

· Basic manners

· Socialization with people and other dogs

· Relationship-forming games

· Problem prevention

· Tips on puppy health, grooming and nutrition
