Super Dog & Senior Puppy Training Class (5 months to adult)

This dog training class is suitable for older puppies 5 months old to adult dogs of any age. If you have gone through our puppy class and your pup is still under 5 months that is fine.

AAre you having difficulties communicating with your dog? Need a refresher training course to build on the fundamentals? Did you just adopt a dog from the shelter and need some help getting started? Super Dog is for those who are starting from the beginning or need to freshen up on the basics before moving on to something more involved such as  our Graduate class, Come When Called class, Leash Manners, Rally Obedience, Competition Training. This series of six weekly classes goes over the basic obedience exercises, walking nicely on leash, focus and attention, recall and adding duration, distance and light distractions to each exercise, how to stay put, and much more! Be prepared to have fun, play learning games and actually enjoy coming to dog training class!

Positive Training Methodology

TNT Training teaches using positive reinforcement and motivational methods. To help your dog understand what we are trying to teach them, we use food rewards. This method of teaching is proven to accelerate the learning process for dogs. The alternative to positive training, is to use compulsion and adversive methods and this type of training is not only old-fashioned and highly outdated, but also produces dogs that work out of fear and not because they “want” to. At TNT we want both yourselves AND your dogs to enjoy the learning and training process.
