puppy training - the all star program

Our series of All Star Classes are designed to create a real-life environment to work on socialization, bite inhibition, temperament training, common behavior problems and off-leash listening.

This class series is specifically outlined for puppies to begin with our
All Star 1 class before they are 16-weeks-old and continue through All Star 2, All Star Focused, and All Star Urban as they continue to grow through puppyhood and adolescence. talk to one of our trainers about our Puppy Raising Packages for great savings!

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

Dogs are off-leash 95-percent of the time they are home with you. So why would you want to train them any other way?

Our All Star class program is taught in an off-leash format with the goal of turning adorable, bouncing puppies into good-natured, well-mannered adult dogs.

Because our All Star classes are taught without leashes, 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 dogs, are socialized to dozens of various people, and are able to practice bite inhibition and proper play. 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!

We offer the following classes:  

All Star Level 1 • All Star Level 2 • All Star Focused • All Star Urban •

All Star Outdoor • Baby Sports

Puppy Evaluation guidelines into our curriculum. Successfully complete All Star Level 1 and your puppy could be recognized as an AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy by one of our certified evaluators!
