Welcome To Puppy Training!

This brief overview will tell you:

  • What to Bring to Class
  • Where Class is
  • Which vaccinations your dog needs to attend class
  • Who can come to class

Thank you for choosing Puppy class at Train This Dog, LLC.
We look forward to working with you and your dog.
The following information is important, please read carefully so you are prepared for class.
Classes are held at
Catnip n Biscuits
2615  Skidaway Road
(next to Taco Bell near the intersection of Victory Road)

Please show up five to ten minutes early to your class. Use the extra time for to allow your dog to potty.

When you come to class you should bring

Your SHOT RECORDS.  (you can take a clear photo with your phone and bring that in if you like).  

A hungry dog!  
Do not give your puppy breakfast if you have a morning class.
Do not give your puppy supper if you have an evening class.
(Note, this works for most dogs, if your dog is underweight or there is another issue, please use your best judgement)

a collar or harness

a six foot standard leash, no flexi (retractable)leashes permitted

delicious low-fat treats.  Plain boiled chicken in tiny pieces works well - dog biscuits will probably not work well at all.

A long tug toy. No hard ropes or plastic.  Something soft and fuzzy is good.

A treat pouch or clothes with pockets for your treats

Comfortable clothing and well behaved children.  (They will need to sit and listen sometimes, other times they are welcome to help you train your puppy.  They are not allowed to visit other people's dogs during class.)

A check to Train This Dog or cash.  I do not take credit cards.  Class is $125.0 for the session! (if you have a One Love Animal Rescue Voucher, please bring that)

If you must miss a class we can schedule a make up for $20.00 or I will help you catch up during the next class -  Don’t stress, this is puppy class, it’s supposed to be fun!

The following link will direct you to my Puppy Packet.  It has lots of hints for things like house training and no jumping.  It also has a list of things to bring to your puppy classes:

Please do not let your pup visit other puppies as you come into the building.  We don't want to teach them that the way to visit other dogs is by pulling on their leashes.
Please call or email if you have questions or need help.

Thank you for choosing Train This Dog, we will work together to make your new family member the best puppy they can be!
