Manners / Education

Dog training is key to developing a well balanced dog that is a pleasure to live with.

Every dog has the power to be great. Will yours? It's up to you. Both you and your dog bring the power to succeed in the training adventure. You bring the power to teach; your dog brings the power and eagerness to learn what you teach.

Crazy Jumpers Dog School offers three levels of education/manner classes. Classes are one hour a week for eight weeks.

PUPPY KINDERGARTEN

This class is for puppies aged 10 to 20 weeks. Vaccinations must be up-to-date.

Puppy Kindergarten emphasis is on producing people- and dog friendly dogs. Playing with other puppies off leash teaches your puppy to fine tune his bite inhibition. Owners may practice controlling their puppies with frequently training sessions having their puppies responding happily and willingly to verbal requests and handsignals to come, sit, heel and down stay.

Puppy Kindergarten classes are taught entierly off leash with the goal of producing a good natured and well mannered adult dog.

We work with Dr. Ian Dunbar's positive and fun, lure-rewarding training methods and we highly recommend the following books from Dr. Ian Dunbar:
- Before you get your puppy and
- After you get your puppy

The e-books can be found and downloaded for free at www.DogStarDaily.com

BASIC MANNERS

This class is for dogs five months and older.

In our basics classes we continue on their formal education from puppy kindergarten and we help owners and their puppies increasing reliability. Your dog will learn how to walk on a loose leash and how to follow off leash, sit-, down- and stand-stay, leave it, how to settle and to come when called. Beside to manners training we are introducing some new tricks and fun games.

Training your dog can be fun. Learning how to communicate with your dog can be a joyful and inspiring experience of mutual empowerment. Positive reinforcement training opens the door to your dog's mind. It gives you and your dog the keys to understanding each other's culture.

Dog training is a life-long process. Remember, practice makes perfect!
