is right for me?

Not sure what class to take? Which of these sounds the most like you?

I recently got a new puppy or am getting a new puppy soon. How can I make sure that my puppy gets off on the right foot?

There are a bunch of options available at Heavenly Hounds for new puppies. A puppy class is usually the place to start! It will answer most of your puppy related questions, teach you and your puppy the basics, and give your puppy a start in socialization.

Puppy Socials are a great way to jump start your puppy’s socialization and give your puppy the confidence he/she needs to succeed in all areas of life.  Paws-Around-Princeton is a great way to practice your puppy’s skills in the real world in addition to providing valuable socialization!

I’ve taken a training class before, but there are still a few things that my dog needs to work on. What can I do to address a few specific issues?

Heavenly Hounds offers a few classes and clinics for dealing with common issues. Check out our Loose Leash Walking Clinic or Put a Stop to Jumping Clinic if walking on a leash or polite greetings are a concern. If your problem areas take place primarily at home, we can also set up a private lesson to work on issues that aren’t easily replicated in a classroom.

My dog barks at other dogs anytime he/she sees them. Taking my dog for a walk is a nightmare. What are my options for training him/her? Can I even take any group classes with my reactive dog?

Private lessons are often a good place to start when working with a reactive dog. It allows the instructor to tailor a plan specifically for your dog’s needs.

Reframing Reactivity is a class specifically tailored to reactive dogs and just might be the help you have been looking for.

My dog isn’t a puppy anymore, but I’d still like to do some training with him. What are my options?

Basics class is open to dogs of all ages and will teach you and your dog all of the essential skills whether they are new to the family or an older dog that simply needs a refresher course. Private lessons are available for dogs who might struggle to cope with the distracting environment of a class or who have difficulty around other dogs.

I’m looking for something more to do with my dog beyond basic obedience. Does Heavenly Hounds offer classes besides obedience classes?

There are lots of fun things to do with your dog beyond basic obedience! Tricks class is a great way to engage your dogs brain and push them to learn new things. Additionally, it is great for improving your timing and skills as a handler.
