Pender Basic is for puppies and dogs starting at the age of 5 months and up. A dog is never too old to learn new tricks! This comprehensive class is for savvy dog owners and those new to dog ownership. Topics include sit, down, stand, attention, handling, stays, touch, recalls, mouthing, biting, stealing, jumping, potty training, pulling, heeling, oral hygiene, grooming, feeding, barking, leadership, and much more. This class differs from Pender Puppy only by the age of the dogs attending and that there is no play time during class. Dogs work harder on impulse control in Basic. This 8 class program is held weekly.
Class Dates: Saturday 5/19, 6/2, 6/9, 9/16, 6/23, 6/30, 7/7, 7/14 (No class 5/26; Memorial Day Weekend)
*This class is for dogs ages 5 months and older* – if you have a younger puppy then please consider our Puppy Kindergarten Classes
