Ideal Puppy Training & Socialization

Starting dates of next classes:
--Thursday, June 23, 2016 at 7:15 p.m.

Why should all puppies go to school? By five months of age much of your puppy's personality has been determined, so it is very important

playing pups
to begin a class prior to this age. Early puppyhood is a critical time for socialization and learning. This time will set the stage for the rest of your puppy's life. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime chance to show your puppy how to confidently relate to other puppies, unfamiliar people, and strange sights, sounds, and events. Reserve your puppy's spot today in this limited-enrollment class. For pups 8-18 weeks of age at the start of class.

Super Puppy  

Not scheduled at this time
Super Puppy class

The fun, high-energy 4-week Super Puppy class is for graduates of Ideal PuppyI (or similar) and are 5 to 9 months of age. Your pup must be friendly towards people and other dogs and have good play skills. This mostly off-leash class is similar to Focus Foundation except that in addition we will continue to promote good socialization skills through off-leash play and interaction. We will work on sit, down stand and stay, adding duration, distance, and distraction,and using positive reinforcement (and the clicker for those that want to). This class is for motivated owners that want to take their puppy to the next level!

Older Puppy Play & Learn  

No class at this time
puppies playing

It is important to continue to allow your older puppy plenty of time to play and to interact with other puppies and dogs. Socialization training is vital to making your new puppy a good canine citizen and teaches your pup to not be fearful around other dogs. A properly socialized puppy becomes a more emotionally healthy adult. We will also incorporate obedience, attention, and focus exercises to keep your pup sharp and engaged. This class is for all dog-friendly pooches between 5-9 months.

Puppy/Adolescent Agility Fun!

Puppy in tunnel--Not scheduled at this time

For pups 5-12 months of age. Take advantage of your youngster's natural curiosity and abundant energy to introduce him or her to the fun sport of agility! This 6-week class will focus on some fundamentals of agility using puppy games that will utilize targeting, wobble boards, focus and basic obedience skills. Puppies will be introduced to sights, sounds, and techniques that are helpful toward building confidence without stress on baby joints. Clickers, treats and toys will be used for focus motivators. Class will help build your puppy's confidence and strengthen your bond and partnership. The goal is to create a dog that is engaged, focused and motivated as well as one that is confident, well socialized, and eager to offer behaviors and learn.

Puppy/Adolescent Agility 2

--No class at this time puppy

Has your young dog already had some agility? Then this class may be for you.

In this class you will learn lots of new skills and continue to work on obedience skills for agility. Obstacles such as A-frame, dogwalk, and teeter at low heights will be taught to give the young dog under a year of age confidence and with safety in mind. Open channel weave poles will be used and we will work on front crosses. Your dog's correct position relative to the handler will be stressed, as well as teaching the puppy the confidence to begin working away from the handler. Short sequences will be run using obstacles such as the table, chute, tunnel and open weaves.No (or only very low) jumping will be done with pups under 12 months of age and older adolescents over a year will begin to jump higher. The difficulty level will be personalized to your dog's (and your) skill level.

Puppy/Adolescent Agility 3

Not scheduled at this time

Your adolescent dog is getting older and his agility skills are improving. Puppy Agility 2 is the prerequisite for Puppy Agility 3. Equipment is being raised, and correct contact behavior (2 on/2 off) is being strengthened and improved. More challenging sequences are being offered to your older and more experienced young dog. We are still not jumping, but we do use jumps with no bars to teach handling around the jump uprights.

Agility Jumping & Weaving Skills

Not scheduled at this time

To be successful in the sport of agility, the dog must be a skillful jumper. Every course your dog will ever run is primarily made up of jumps, yet it is the least understood skill set in agility. When a dog understands how to jump, he will run more smoothly, efficiently, and decisively. Based upon Linda Mecklenberg's jump training, this class is geared towards both dogs just learning to jump and is also recommended for all dogs needing to improve their skills. In addition, weaving skills will be worked on, including gaining proficiency in entering the weaves from all angles.

Intro to Agility (Level 1)

--Monday, March 28, 2016 at 11 a.m.

In Introduction to Agility (more agility info here) dogs will be introduced to many of the obstacles in agility such as jumps, tunnel, chute, and open weaves, in a safe and controlled manner. The skills needed to successfully negotiate the obstacles and the handling skills will be worked on weekly. Attention, focus and motivation will be practiced as the team builds confidence in an atmosphere that centers on learning skills while having fun.

Beginning Agility (Level 2)

--Thursday, March 31, 2016 at 6 p.m.

This is the next class after you have comleted Intro to Agility. In this class handling skills and basic control will be improved. Students learn to give timely commands, to provide consistent and smooth body cues, and to develop teamwork with their dogs. Handlers also develop the ability to switch smoothly from handling their dogs off one side to handling off the other in the middle of a sequence. The dog and handler teams will continue to improve their skills and will become more proficient at simple combinations of obstacles.

Novice Agility
Thursday, February 25, 2016 at 7:15 p.m. (Novice-Intermediate) with Cynthia
--Thursday, February 18, 2016 at 6 p.m.


We will continue to develop teamwork and increase handling skills in Novice Agility. This is the class for Beginning Agility grads. Sequencing is performed off lead, therefore, your dog also must be able to sit, stay, down, and come on command, off lead. Handlers also develop the ability to switch smoothly from handling their dogs off one side to handling off the other in the middle of a sequence using front and rear crosses. The different come to side maneuvers will be practiced using obstacles. Dogs will be taught to move ahead and switch as needed from handler to obstacle focus.

Intermediate/Advanced Agility

--Monday, May 23, 2016 at 6 p.m. Indoors
--Monday, May 26, 2016 at 7:15 p.m. Outdoors


Intermediate Agility class is designed to advance you and your dog's agility skills and to prepare you and your dog for competition, if desired. The class will build on jumping skills, obstacle discrimination, and distance handling skills. The dogs must be reliable off leash and under good control. Dog/handler teamwork is emphasized, not on just getting through a sequence but the way in which it is accomplished. The class is designed to teach the handler and the dog how to gain confidence, accuracy, and speed.

Two class times: 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
