Puppy Training and Socialization

Puppy training classes are the best thing you can do to ensure that your new addition starts off on the right foot.

In addition to obedience skills, our puppy curriculum covers potty training, crate training, nipping, jumping, impulse control and most important of all, creating a customized socialization plan that will help your new buddy meet their full potential as an adult.

Veterinarians and trainers agree that early, positive socialization is crucial for a puppy’s development. For owners who want the socialization value of a puppy class but are wary of exposing their puppies to the group environment before their vaccines are complete, our in-home training courses bring socialization and enrichment to you.

Level Up offers full puppy obedience courses as well as single-session lectures for potty training or crate training.

Puppy Obedience and Manners Classes

Basic Puppy Obedience:

This is our just-the-basics option. Basic manners make any dog easier to live with. Your dog will learn to sit, down, stay, come when called, walk politely on the leash, leave it, target and go to bed/crate.

Our puppy curriculum also covers solutions for typical behaviors such as potty training, crate training, nipping, chewing, jumping, stealing food, etc. All of our obedience classes also offer extensive socialization support.

Puppy Training, New Dogs and Basic House Skills:

Our Quick-Start training programs are designed for puppies and new dogs who are working on basic house skills.

We offer single-session workshops on crate training or house-breaking to get your dog on the right track, fast.

For puppies under 16 weeks (4 months), our Puppy Quick-Start program bundles our popular crate training and potty-training workshops together with a problem-solving session at a reduced rate.  It's our way of saying "Thank you for starting early!"

Puppy Quick-Start Workshops:

Crate training
Crate Training Quick-Start:

This one session quick-start program will help you get off on the right foot with crate training your dog. Contrary to common belief, there's a lot more to crate training than just putting the dog in the kennel and hoping for the best. In fact, doing that may set back your dog's progress dramatically and make future crate training even harder. Let us teach you how to introduce the crate correctly for a positive and stress-free experience.

This program is appropriate for puppies and dogs of all ages. You will need to supply your own crate (plastic, wire or fabric).

Potty training a new puppy
Potty Training Quick-Start:

There is nothing more stressful than scrubbing dog pee out of the carpet day after day. If your dog is struggling to learn the ins and outs of house-training, this quick-start session is for you. We will go over the best practices for teaching a dog where to go, when to go and how to tell you that they need to go. You'll also learn all about management, accident prevention, substrate preferences, bladder schedules and how to teach your dog to care about the difference between grass and an antique Persian rug.

By the end of the session, you will have a full potty training plan completely customized for your dog and your family for maximum success.

Puppy Quick-Start Bundle:

Bringing home a new puppy is an amazing experience, but it's also a surprising amount of work! So many of the behaviors that we consider "problem behaviors" are completely natural for the dog. Unfortunately, they come pre-installed at puppyhood. Problems like chewing, nipping, jumping, barking, scavenging for food and pottying everywhere are the default-setting for puppies. But natural or not, those are not behaviors that most people want in a dog they expect to spend a decade or two with! It can start to feel overwhelming.

Puppy Quick-Start is a reduced-price three session package for dogs under the age of 16 weeks. It bundles our popular crate training and potty training quick-start programs with a third bonus session at half price. Puppyhood is a perfect time to address any common problems like play-biting, inappropriate chewing and jumping on people. Throughout all three lessons, your puppy will also learn foundation skills like come, sit, leave it and go to bed. By the end of the training program, your four-legged new addition will be off to a great start!
