We are proud to announce that Give Paw Dog Training is partnering with good friend and dog training colleague, Rikke Brogaard, as well as Monster Mutt Doggie Daycare to offer group dog training classes in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn (surrounding areas include Park Slope, Carroll Gardens, Boerum Hill, Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn Heights, and Prospect Heights). Our next round of classes will start on July 12th with Puppy Kindergarten (for dogs 6 months or under) beginning at 8pm and Basic Manners (for dogs older than 6 months) at 9pm. Later in the year we will also offer an Intermediate Good Manners class, Puppy Playgroup every Sunday morning, and a variety of seminars.
PUPPY & ADULT BASIC MANNERS:
These two classes are great for both socializing your puppy or adult dog and teaching him fun and useful skills that will give you a common vocabulary you can use with him. It will help establish and build a bond with Fido and you will learn that training can and should be FUN!! Your dog will learn all his basic manners cues (Sit, Down, Come, Stay, Leave It, Drop It, etc) and you will learn how to better read your dog and know what is going on inside his little noggin’. We’ll also address common issues (jumping, mouthing, housetraining, chewing, barking, etc). Puppy Kindergarten is for all puppies under 6 months old. Basic Manners is for all mutts over the age of 6 months. Class size is limited in order to guarantee all the individual attention you and your pup need. Classes run one hour per week for 4 consecutive weeks unless otherwise specified.
INTERMEDIATE GOOD MANNERS:
Intermediate classes are open to dogs that have taken our basic or puppy class, or that have been evaluated and deemed ready for intermediate training. This 4 week course takes what you and your dog learned in basic class and builds on that knowledge. We work to proof the stay and coming when called cues and we teach the dogs to respond even with distractions around. Dogs are not born with a lot of impulse control and self-control so this is a great place to practice. We will also have time to work on a little more “real life” stuff and even games. Class size is limited in order to guarantee all the individual attention you and your pup need. Classes run one hour per week for 4 consecutive weeks unless otherwise specified.

All classes will be taught with positive reinforcement methods and are meant to be both educational and FUN! See you in class!
