Once they have had their third Parvo shot they’re ready to learn what it takes to be big dogs. Classes start with the basics: sit, stay, down and come. We graduate to the leash and work on grooming, sleep habits, jumping, chewing and pee-pee/poo-poo during these first two weeks. Socialization between dogs and people is third on the list and then we work on what didn’t work until you have the puppy you dreamed of. $15 per session
We recommend dogs to be 11 months or older depending on breed and unless a herding breed we will do a free agility ability test.

Taught by trainer Faith Norman this course does what it has to in order to get dogs of any age back on track. Sometimes it’s just three months of being caged up in a pandemic household. Sometimes it’s a couple years of just not paying that much attention to your dog’s manners and needs. Dogs figure out pretty quickly what they can get away with! This class is the perfect nudge to get them back at their best.
Tuesday 8:15 am
Saturdays from noon to about 1:30 pm come and sit back with the folks at Astro’s.
