Super Puppy Series
for older pups that are working hard to be the best adolescent dog!
Super Puppy Series is for pups between 6 months and 11 months. Older puppies are ripe for more learning opportunities designed to promote impulse control, listening skills and basic manners. We teach all of these skills in a puppy centric fashion using games and activities! If your puppy has completed Puppy Express and/or Puppy Palooza and they are still in need of some additional manners polishing or social skills development before they participate in our Basic Obedience classes this is the series for you! This can also provide a jump start for recently adopted puppies who are a bit older than the average puppy class participant, but who are too young for joining classes. Focus is always on dog-friendly and humane teaching techniques.
You and your dog are eager to learn new ways to enjoy each others company, especially in the rainy and dark season! Tailored to your desire to enrich your relationship between you and dog the Enrichment Series provides three unique learning activities, one is offered each week.
Activity #1 Mind Games: Explore the fun of games, puzzles and interactive toys. Let your dog go for the timed record for working a puzzle, and let your dog try out the most popular cognitive toys.
Activity#2 Nose Games: Learn how to set up easy scent games for your dog. Every dog loves to use their most powerful sense: their sense of smell. Big fun guaranteed!
Activity#3 Movement Games: Take a full 50 minutes to jump, tunnel, weave and teeter totter in a warm and dry environment. This is NOT a full size agility course, instead it is a sample of equipment that offers some fun exercise and cognitive outlets for you and your dog.
