Level Two - Advanced Life Skills

Level Two class will continue to work on the skills introduced in Level One. We will work to increase reliability of trained behaviours and learn how to eliminate the clicker once behaviours have been successfully trained. We will work through components of the Canine Good Neighbour program where dogs will learn to greet people and dogs appropriately, walk on a loose leash amidst increasing levels of distraction, and deal with life even in the presence of other dogs. We will also try some rally obedience and learn some new behaviours and tricks!

Level One - Basic Life Skills

Level One is for Puppy Socialization graduates and adult or adolescent dogs that are new to training. The focus of beginner training is to learn everyday basic life skill exercises like sit, down, stay, come, pay attention, walk nicely on leash, leave it and polite greetings. We will also address problem solving and elimination of undesirable behaviours like jumping up and barking. Dogs will learn to focus on their families even in the face of distractions!  

Prerequisites: for dogs 17 weeks of age and older; all dogs must be up to date on vaccinations.

Preregistration is required. Email to reserve your spot.

Early Puppy Socialization & Manners 


Early socialization is critical for puppies. Introducing your puppy to positive experiences with new people, places, animals, sounds, movement and textures before he or she is 16 weeks old will help prevent behavioural problems down the road. Paws Dog Solution offers open enrollment classes to ensure that your puppy doesn’t miss out on this crucial socialization time.

What is open enrollment? 
Open enrollment means that new puppies can start whenever they are ready and attend class for 5 consecutive weeks. Each class consists of a stand-alone module, so you can jump in at any time. For example, if the group is in Week 3 of a 5-week session, you would take the classes in this order: Week 3, 4, 5, 1 & 2. 

• puppies must be 16 weeks of age or younger at the start of classes
• proof of vaccinations is required
• puppies must have lived in the owner’s home for a minimum of two weeks before start of classes

Preregistration is required.
