Puppy 101 Class - Group Dog Training Class

Getting your puppy started on the right paw will shape their behavior for a lifetime! Our group puppy class focuses on teaching: proper socialization, basic obedience, grooming manners, and potty training rituals – all of which are imperative for your puppy to experience at a young age. This class also seeks to prevent predictable puppy problems and break puppy habits like: mouthing, jumping, resource guarding, and chewing. During our group puppy class, we conduct puppy recesses and structured pack socialization breaks to promote proper socialization and instill positive behavior with other furry friends. Puppies who attend must be under 6 months of age when the first class begins and must have age-appropriate vaccinations.

We recommend a 1-3 month waiting/practice period after the conclusion of Puppy 101 before pups start the 201 course.

Canine Good Citizen Testing

Per the American Kennel Club, “The CGC title is also a prerequisite for many therapy dog certifications, as well as a great introduction to more advanced dog sports and activities. Some homeowners’ insurance programs even offer discounts for CGC dogs, and an increasing number of apartments and condos see CGC awards as a major bonus for becoming a resident.” CGC Testing is included in the Puppy 201 class and can be completed during the 8th week of the class or within 2 months of purchasing the package. CGC Testing is available to members of the general public for $50 and can be scheduled by giving us a call at 913-217-7288.

PACK Fitness Group Dog Training

This fun and challenging program is a pawsome way to get in shape and have fun with your dog at the same time! During the program, we use plyometric drills and intervals of strength, power, and resistance. The program incorporates ab and core training techniques along with exercises designed to strengthen your core. This class challenges dog and owners’ mental and physical skills through obstacle course work, games, hurdles, scale ramps, burst-through-tunnels, games of see-saw, and pole weaves.

PACK Fitness Group Dog Training is a program where fitness and dog obedience training is done in tandem and is taken one step further. Participants will learn about the importance of developing a stable conditioning program for your dog and why we believe in incorporating core strength training into the dog’s wellness program. Our workouts are designed by qualified professionals (both canine and fitness trainers) to stimulate the mind, focus on the body, and create a soulful connection that will bond you and your dog forever! Let’s face it…you need exercise every day, your dog needs exercising every day, and you both need dog obedience training to have a long, happy, stress-free life together.

PACK Fitness Group dog Training is a one-stop fitness platform that combines a strenuous workout with basic obedience for both dogs and their people. This class is run by one personal trainer and one professional dog trainer. Everyone is considered a team; therefore, while we will differentiate levels of challenge. the class will never be divided into different groups.

Both dogs and owners alike are required to attend a free consultation and obedience lesson before entering the program. This is to ensure that dogs are familiar with their basic commands so the workout will go smoothly. Dogs will also be evaluated for temperament to prevent human or dog aggression within the class!

Owners will be interviewed, weighed, and measured (optional) to ensure a healthy start while also discussing future goals. A welcome folder will be given at this time as well as equipment lists. However, individuals must provide their dog training materials and water for both the handler and their dog partner.

Each class will be 1 hour long and will be comprised of cardiovascular training, obedience training, strength training, and stretching to maintain flexibility. Dogs will be on-leash throughout the entire class unless advised otherwise. Your dog is the best workout buddy you have! Your dog is – forever loyal, enthusiastic, and always ready for some fun. With the right training and support your dog can be your perfect workout partner. You furry friend will encourage you and will always be happy to exercise with you.

Nose Work Foundation Class

In today’s complex world, our canine companions often find themselves bored and misunderstood because they aren’t utilizing their natural abilities to the fullest potential. This course provides a great mental and physical outlet and supports handler and canine relationships. Empowering your dog’s natural sense of smell and the desire to search, is an innovative way to bond and strengthen your dog’s natural abilities. Our goal is for handlers to learn how to read their dogs and to pick up on the subtle signals that their dogs use to communicate when they are on the trail of an odor source.
