puppy training - the all star program

 

Our series of All Star Classes are designed to create a real-life environment to provide the opportunity for owners to work on socialization, bite inhibition, temperament training, common behavioral problems and off-leash verbal control. These classes are designed as a continuum. In order to take any of these classes, you must begin with our All Star Puppy class. If you haven't taken this class or your puppy is over 4 months old, click here for our PHENOMENAL basic training classes: The Dream Team.

The Dog Denthe benefits to the dog den's all star obedience program:

Dogs are off-leash 95 percent of the time that they are at home with you during their day-to-day living. So why would you want to train them any other way? Our All Star off-leash class program is taught in a real-life format with the goal of turning adorable, bouncing puppies into good-natured, well-mannered adult dogs.

Because our All Star classes are taught off-leash, puppies learn at a young age that they must listen to their owners even with high-level distractions surrounding them. At the same time, they are able to learn how to interact with many different breeds, are socialized to dozens of various people (men and children included), and are able to practice bite inhibition. Attending off-leash classes also provides owners the opportunity to learn how to control their dogs without relying on a leash to regain their attention.

Training should be as enjoyable for dogs as it is for owners, so we strive to bring innovative new ideas and games to our classes. Training should also involve quick, easy, and effective methods that are within the capabilities of all family members. We encourage all family members, no matter their age, to join us in all of the fun of training!

ALL STAR LEVEL 2

This off-leash class is a continuation of our Puppy Class - All Star Level 1. In this class, we focus on maintaining bite inhibition and socialization, while continuing to work on reliable off-leash attention, additional basic obedience commands, removal of food lures for training, and verbal control, all while working through what we like to call the "teenager phase".

ALL STAR LEVEL 3

The focus of the All Star 3 training class is to get "adolescence into focus."  Now that you have a well-socialized adolescent dog, you are paws above the rest of the pack!  However when the "teenager phase" arrives, your job is not done. Our goal is to support you and your adolescent dog through this stage by introducing fun attention-building games to build off-leash focus and impulse control, especially when real-life distractions are present!

Class Length: 6 weeks; 45 minutes each week Cost: $115 Prerequisites: All Star 2 *vaccines required first night of class

ALL STAR LEVEL 4

By now your dog has mastered lightning-fast responses for basic commands, stays with high distractions, polite off leash walking and reliable recalls. Now it is time to really put your dog to the test. In the All Star Level 4 class, we work on long distance "emergency" commands (stop, emergency sit, flying down) and obedience in the presence of highly-challenging distractions.
