Puppy Classes

For information call Brigitte King at (613) 584-2982. Please call after 10am.

Classes: Tuesday nights, 6:30-7:30 and 7:45-8:45. Each term is 6 weeks long.

Cost: $90 per term.

These classes are meant to formulate proper socialization skills for your puppy and to shape his/her behavior to fit your expectations and desires from your new pet. In these classes, we’ll address:

  • Coming when called
  • Walking on leash without pulling
  • Sitting to greet people
  • Acceptance of handling
  • Tellington TTouch Training
  • How to deal with common puppy behaviours (e.g. biting, housetraining, chewing, guarding of food or toys, chasing, overcoming fear or shyness)
The emphasis is on how puppies learn so that you will learn to teach your pup the things that matter most to you. The methods used are positive reinforcement and management of the environment.
Your puppy should be between the ages of 7 and 17 weeks to start these classes. Enrolled puppies are required to have their first two sets of shots, including Bordetella (Kennel Cough Vaccine). Proof of vaccination is required to register.

Rally

For information call Ivale Brown at (613) 735-3628.

These classes introduce a new, motivating style of competition. It combines the requirements for obedience with the course concept of agility. Rally is less formal than obedience with less emphasis on precision and more on the dog’s attitude. You progress in natural stages through the levels. Praise is allowed throughout the competition and food reinforcement is allowed at the introductory levels.

The skills required for this class are:

  • Walking in a controlled fashion on leash
  • Recall in a controlled environment
  • Stays at a moderate distance for about 20 seconds
Rally has a set of signs which indicate the exercises required on course. The participants will gain familiarity with these. The skills that pertain to them will be taught and practiced. Miniature courses will be set up so that the handler and dog will get practice putting the exercises together in the manner they could appear in competition. You’ll have fun with your dog and develop your teamwork!
