We welcome back our good friend, Lisa Caputo, who previously served as Director of Operations here at New Hampshire Humane Society. Lisa will be the primary onsite trainer for Inspire training sessions.
Puppy Life Skills: $90 per participant. Puppies 2 to 5 months of age.
Get your puppy started right! This class will run 45 minutes weekly for three weeks. There will be approximately 20 minutes of socialization (puppy playtime) and 20 minutes of working on a life skill, such as confidence-building, sit, down, body handling and more!
Puppy Kindergarten: $165 per participant. Puppies from 4 to 8 months.
For puppies 4 to 8 months. We do not do puppy socialization in this class as our mission in our training is to allow you to be the best thing in your puppy’s world. We want to teach your puppy to focus on YOU in high distraction environments! During class we will work on puppy chewing, human nipping, Sit, Down, Stay, Touch, Focus, Go to place, and wait. We will also work on coming when called and the start of leash walking.
Note: The first class is a non-dog class, where the human is getting the education, not the dog. This allows all students to be set up and ready for the second class for when they bring their dog. The hope is to provide students with everything they need to have their first class be a success.
Level 1 Manners: $165 per participant. Puppies/Dogs over 8 months
This class is open to any dog 8 months or older or any pup that has completed our Puppy Kindergarten class. We will work on skills such as sit/stay, down/stay, wait, leave it, place, coming when called, and greeting strangers. We will also start work on leash walking, along with working on those skills around other dogs, people, and outside, while working on developing trust and confidence within your dog.
The goal of this class is to apply skills learned, in order to implement and proof them with the “3D’s” model: distance, duration, and distractions. We want you and your dog to be successful in starting your journey to having a dog that can be successful outside, around other dogs, and other people. We have set a curriculum but try to modify each skill to the particular dog’s level of learning. There is no cookie cutter way to train. If you are ready to get your dog prepared for the settings above, then this is the class for you.
Note: The first class is a non-dog class where the human is getting the education - not the dog. This allows all students to be set up and ready for the second class for when they bring their dogs. The hope is to provide students with everything they need to have their first class be a success. Note: This class is not for reactive dogs, or dogs that struggle in class environments.
