Purrfect Puppy Class/S.T.A.R Puppy

Dogs from 8 weeks –12 weeks old at time of first class. Four (4) week course.

Tuesday nights @ 6:30 PM $85/4 weeks

Purrfect Puppies is essential to the behavioral development of puppies. Our puppy class teaches you and your puppy important life skills like impulse control, bite inhibition, meeting novel stimuli with confidence, and how to communicate with us politely. Those lessons are taught using positive reinforcement based methods like clicker training to create an effective, efficient and fun communication system that both you and your dog can understand with ease.

By starting off on the right paw with your puppy you can avoid behavior problems that may develop due to lack of socialization and training. Not only will your dog learn to respond to cues like 'sit', 'down' and 'stay'. They will also learn how to walk politely, greet people without jumping and leave objects alone that are not chew toys!

At the completion of the course all puppies are eligible to take the S.T.A.R. Puppy Test.  For details click here.

Megan Zagarella (Jasmine) - The class helped us discover commands and tricks our dog had all ready learned from her previous owners and then refine those behavior for her new schedule and life with us. The staff was very positive and encouraging during the sometimes frustrating process of training a young puppy.

Nancy Magnuson (Cooper) - Cooper has grown vastly in his first 7 weeks with us and the Purrfect Paws family. He has become a very well-mannered puppy with skills he’ll be using in everyday life and has only the great training of the Purrfect Paws staff to thank for teaching his parents to interact with an understanding of a dog’s world.
