FOUNDATION PUPPY 2
This 6-week course is for puppies who have graduated from Foundation Puppy 1. In this class your puppy will continue to learn the benefits of connection and focusing their attention on you. We will work on building your puppy's confidence and optimism, as well as their flexibility and independence while learning how to handle multiple situations.
We will be taking what was learned from Foundation Puppy 1 Class and reinforcing learned commands and behaviors. We will add more distractions, distances, duration and challenges to build the puppy's confidence and help them make better choices.
It is highly recommended that you continue your puppy's training in the Adolescent Dog 1 Class.
The Mill of Bel Air Classes
Puppy classes started in September 2019, at The Mill of Bel Air, in Bel Air, MD. It is so important to start your puppy as young as possible.They are like little sponges, are yearning for attention and learning. Spending time creating an optimistic and confident puppy will. Seeing puppies grow into well behaved dogs and watching the relationship between dog and owner grow is priceless.
These classes have moved to 4 Paws Spa & Training Center effective June 1, 2020.
