• Puppy Poise Dog Training Class

    What is it?
    Basic good manners for puppies ages 3-6 months

  • It’s Puppy Time…

    Puppy Poise teaches many of the behaviors that we learn in Adult Etiquette, but we also have discussions and demonstrations about many puppy issues such as potty training, crate training, nipping, etc.

    As in Adult Etiquette, we teach you how to use a marker or clicker. The clicker marks the behavior that your dog does, and then is followed by a treat or toy. Don’t worry, you won’t have to carry a clicker and treats around forever! We also teach you how to eventually fade out both.

    We’ll learn: Name Recognition, Attention, Sit, Down, Leash Walking, Polite Greetings, discuss Potty Training, Crate Training, Handling, Mouthing, etc.

    This class is also a good opportunity to socialize your puppy with other dogs and people. Proper socialization serves as the foundation for a happy, well-adjusted pup!

  • Purely Positive Dog Training

    Our techniques are purely positive. We don’t advocate a human/dog relationship based on fear and/or coercion, and do not support or use choke collars, prong collars, shock collars or any aversive techniques that may damage your dogs trust in you or in humankind.

    For those who want to have their dogs socialized with other dogs, we also offer puppy day care! Daytime Playtime is perfect for puppies that have reached the age of four months and who want to have fun and play during the day! We offer dog day care in Howard County and we will pick up your dog (for an additional fee) within a short radius of our facility on St. John’s Lane, in Ellicott City.
