Beginning Puppies

A critical period of canine development is between 8 and 16 weeks of age. In this time period, training and socialization will have a major impact on your dog's future disposition. Paw N Claws Academy allows you to set your pup up to succeed in life so that he will grow into a well behaved, well socialized dog.

We cover everything from basic household manners, socialization with people and other animals, feeding and housetraining tips, confidence building exercises, problem prevention, and laying the foundation for more sophisticated behaviors. In this fun and social class, we teach you the quickest way to establish a bond with your dog so that the two of you can become an effective training team.

Length: 5 weeks

Introduction to Agility

Are you lucky enough to have a fast, motivated dog with seemingly endless amounts of energy? Consider getting him involved in agility!

Whether you'd like to eventually compete or are merely looking for a fun and active way to bond with your dog, agility offers your dog mental as well as physical stimulation. Agility also builds confidence in anxious dogs, strengthens the bond between dog and owner and improves overall focus. In this class, your dog will be introduced to agility equipment in a fun, safe, and positive manner. You will also be introduced to new targeting and luring techniques while simultaneously having a blast! All breeds welcome.
