Surviving Adolescence
Instructor: Alisha Fritz

Wednesday, December 12, 2018 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Instructor: Alisha Fritz- Surviving Adolescence is a 7-week course intended for older puppies and dogs in their "teenage" stage of development who are 4-18 months old*.  It will include some socialization exercises, but will also help you teach your dog manners such as sit, down, come, stay, and leave it.  We will also concentrate on frustration tolerance, distractions, and other issues commonly experienced with adolescent dogs such as jumping up and pulling on leash.  You will learn strategies for working through this challenging stage of canine life.  This class is a good alternative to Canine Manners if your dog has not been spayed or neutered yet. All dogs must be up-to-date on vaccinations. 
The first class is for HUMANS ONLY and held in Smoky's Training Center which is accessed from our 3rd parking lotPlease Note: There will be no class on December 26th.  An extra class has been added to the schedule.

*We do recommend that puppies 4-6 months of age complete a socialization puppy class prior to taking this class
