The Atta Pup! Training Club is a new program offered as an alternative to class. Held in the training center at various times, we have two options - Coaching for those looking for periodic guidance or a place to practice and Teaching for those looking for clear and continuous instruction (like a class.)

New members are required to attend a human-only orientation before their dog's first visit. In this orientation, we discuss our methods and the "hows" and "whys" of what we do. Following the orientation, members may visit the club as it suits their schedules. Open times for the week vary and will be emailed out in the mornings or at the beginning of each week. Members are welcome to request times that work better for their schedule. We will accommodate as we can.

The Training Club allows members more flexibility in their schedules, allows for unexpected absences, and offers a more customized curriculum. *Please note: We do not cover guard, protection, or attack training.*

 

Club Fee: $139 for 5 visits (1 hour each)

Prerequisite: None; This option is for new students or returning students.

This option is for those looking for class but unable to find one to fit their schedule. This option includes instruction, homework, and fulfills the prerequisite requirement for the Coaching Option.

 

Behaviors covered: For new members, basic clicker training concepts and good manners are covered in the first five visits. For experienced club members, training topics are chosen by the participants with input from the instructor. Topics include but are not limited to: intermediate good manners, impulse control, trick training, etc.

 

Appropriate for: Dogs and humans of all training levels. Not appropriate for dogs who are fearful of or reactive towards other dogs or people.

 

Please note - all new Training Club members must participate in member orientation prior to their first visit.

Teaching Option
 

Club Fee: $105 for 5 visits (1 hour each)

This option is for pet parents with goals in mind and a basic idea of how to accomplish them. You might need a space to practice, materials to use, and/or periodic guidance. If you are looking for other humans to help with a particular goal, such as polite greetings, please provide notice before your visit.

 

Behaviors covered: You choose your goals and behaviors for this option. We'll coach as you need.

Coaching Option

Should your puppy attend classes before they've

completed their vaccinations?

The first several months of a puppy's life are a critical period for learning about the world. The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior states that, "puppies can start socialization classes as early as 7-8 weeks of age,"

and that "...it should be the standard of care for puppies to receive socialization before they are fully vaccinated." 

 

We require that your puppy receive at least the first round of their distemper vaccine or display an adequate titer result before their first class and that they receive their rabies vaccine or display adequate titer at the age recommended by their veterinarian. 

 

Read the AVSAB position statement below and discuss what's best

for your puppy with your veterinarian.
