Dog and Puppy Training Classes
I offer classes for puppies and dogs of all ages: Puppy Play and Socialization, Puppy Kindergarten, Basic Manners, and Around Town Training Walks.
NEW! Puppy Play and Socialization (8 weeks to 5 mos.)
Do you want to give your puppy play time? Are you waiting for a puppy class and want to start socialization? Join us for a one-hour puppy play and socialization class at the Big Bad Woof retail store in Takoma DC. This class includes supervised off-leash play, a socialization lesson, and instruction on reading your pup’s body language. This is a one-hour, stand-alone class. Please register for each date you plan to attend. If you’re unsure if you should enroll, contact Rewards Dog Training.
If you have a puppy, you need Puppy Kindergarten! Early puppy socialization and training helps prevent behavior problems later on. Each class includes supervised off-leash play, basic manners training, and socialization.
Basic Manners for All Dogs (Ages 6 mos and older)
Whether you have a rowdy adolescent pup or an older dog, this class is for you. We'll cover basic manners, leash walking, dog body language, and more. You'll get a dog with polite manners, and your dog will get the training they need.
Around Town - Pay-As-You-Go Training Class
Work on your dog's manners in the "real world." This is a pay-as-you-go group class that meets at different locations outdoors, including parks and urban settings. This is an opportunity to practice with more distractions, fine-tune your dog's behaviors, and work on advanced skills. Classes will be offered periodically each month. Dogs must be at least 6 months of age and have had basic training. If you’re unsure if you should enroll, contact me.
