Train Your Dog With Poochies and Mutts!

All of the classes at Poochies and Mutts focus on maximizing the bond between you and your dog. We want you and your dog to both be happy and develop the best relationship possible. We have a large training area and your class will be kept small to ensure personal attention. The foundation of our classes is the result of work by Dr. Patricia McConnell and is a positive, reward based learning method.

We encourage participation from all the family members that will be handling the dog. This helps ensure success for you and your dog at home!

Each class will be 30 min. to and hour long.  All sessions need to be prepaid before start date and everyone must be registered with Poochies and Mutts to ensure vaccinations are up to date. 

Private lessons can be arranged ahead of time.

Puppy Kindergarten

This class is intended for puppies age 8 weeks to 5 months. It will run for 8 weeks. We encourage everyone in the family that will be training the dog to attend this class. We include the book “Puppy Primer” by Dr. Patricia McConnell with this session.

Puppy Kindergarten focuses on some basic behaviors such as name recognition, sit, down, coming when called, attention, stand, loose leash walking and will include help with crate training, house training, pre stay mouthing and jumping. You will also learn additional fun and functional behaviors like shake, take it, and drop it. You will learn how to use a clicker or marker word. There will also be puppy play time in this class. 

Classes are limited to 6 teams per trainer and must have a minimum of 3 dogs to hold the class.

Basic Adult

Basic adult is for any dog 6 months or older that has not had formal training or perhaps, just not trained with you. It is great for dogs that have been re-homed or adopted at and older age. This class will run for 8 weeks, and will include the book, “Family Friendly Dog Training,” by Dr. Patricia McConnell. We encourage anyone involved in training to attend this class. 

You will learn positive training methods to teach your dog name recognition attention, sit, down, stand, wait, stay, loose leash walking, leave it, coming when called, four on the floor, and more. You will learn how to use marker words or a clicker to mark correct behaviors and the value of positive training!

This class runs for 8 weeks. All participants should have knowledge of basic obedience skills. Each week we will introduce you to the skills needed to pass the evaluation.

We will have a great time working with you and your best friend to ensure you both have the skills needed to interact with the world.
