A great foundation for dogs of any age or breed. Dogs will learn life skills to help them become canine good citizens both in the home and in public. Learn how to effectively communicate with your dog to achieve just about anything. At Bayside, we teach using positive reinforcement. The power of play combined with treats is key to motivational learning. Our goal is to make sure you and your dog are both having fun every step of the way.

Areas covered are basic behaviors such as sit, down, stay, come, place, leave it, leash manners and polite greeting. If you put in the work you’re sure to see improvement in focus and self-control from your dog, making coexistence with them all the more enriching. Skills learned in this class will also help prepare your dog for the AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. Upon passing the 10 step test you will receive a form, which you then mail to AKC in order to obtain an official Certificate and title. To learn more about the CGC test please visit the http://www.akc.org website. Revolving enrollment (or drop in classes) are not offered with this class.

Puppy Kindergarten is for puppies ages 12-20 weeks. In our safe and sanitary environment your puppy will be introduced to different stimuli, people, other puppies and more. We will have fun playing learning games while also focusing on preventing issues such as potty training, biting, chewing, boredom, destruction and barking. With a proper educational foundation, we’re able to help assure that your puppy reaches its greatest potential. We are committed to helping new puppy owners set off on a path that will lead to a lifetime of opportunities and achievements, no matter how big or small they may be. 

Our Puppy Kindergarten class is a well thought out and carefully conducted development and enrichment program, designed to help your pup develop into a confident pet. You will be taught how to positively handle your puppy through a series of activities that include grooming exercises, mock veterinary exams, obstacle navigation, basic behaviors (including come, sit, down, stay) and walking on a leash. You will learn how the power of play can be just as effective along with treat training. These fundamentals will help us build on life skills that are paramount to grooming, veterinary exams and teaching etiquette in public places.

 You will work your puppy on and off leash. Working off leash is important in establishing a reliable working relationship. As a reward, puppies will be allowed short recess time to learn how to properly play and socialize with one another while also learning to listen when distracted. This will be great for anyone who plans to bring their dog to parks or beach environments where dogs are off leash together. There will be plenty of opportunities for personalized Q&A time with your trainer to assure you have all your needs met. Revolving enrollment (or drop in classes) are available with this class. For those puppies who attend all six classes, you may be eligible to take the AKC S.T.A.R Puppy test at the end of this course. More information is available about this test at http://www.akc.org/dog-owners/training/akc-star-puppy/.
