What to bring to class
  • A Hungry Puppy - please do not feed your puppy before class

  • 5 to 6 ft. leash
  • Flat buckle, snap collar, Gentle Leader
    [ www.buygentleleader.com ] or [ www.snootloop.com ]
    I have found some dogs like the snoot loop better.
  • Plenty of small easy to eat treats
  • Your puppy's favourite toy
  • A crate wire or Vari - I will have some crates available for you to use if you cannot bring your own. Crates will be used for crate games and it is a great way to get your puppies comfortable in their crates in another environment.
  • Proof of vaccinations

Looking forward to meeting everyone!
