BEST BUDDIES GROUP TRAINING SESSIONS

Our goal is to offer the best possible training foundation for you and your dog. All classes are limited in size to 6 dogs. There are six classes in each session. The first class is a special orientation of two hours because you need to understand how your dog learns and the reasoning behind the training methods we recommend. All other classes are one hour in length. We are positive reinforcement trainers and emphasize the correct use of positive reinforcement in all our classes because it works best.

Currently we offer group classes for behavioral obedience, puppy kindergarten, puppy hikes, and agility on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings as well as Saturday mornings. Growler Classes are two hours in length and are offered in 8 classes or 4 class per session options. Growler Classes are also limited in size to 6 dogs.

Best Buddies group classes (except Growler) are taught by Diane Thompson at Raspberry Ridge Sheep Farm

PUPPY KINDERGARTEN

We highly recommend our Puppy Kindergarten session for puppies under six months of age—any healthy puppy from two to six months of age can attend. It is a great starting point to begin the socialization process so important in creating a well-grounded puppy - one ready for life’s adventures and misadventures. Puppy Kindergarten also helps prevent food and dog aggression, fear issues, and encourages the puppy to pay attention to its family rather than everything but. Puppy Kindergarten skills cannot be “made up” down the road, and it is important that the puppy attend a Kindergarten class at the right age (just like our human children).

Occasionally, we will make an exception to the six-months of age cut off point. Some smaller breed puppies that haven’t had Kindergarten are best placed into that class but must first be qualified by the training professional.

For those puppies starting Puppy Kindergarten at an early age we encourage attending a second Kindergarten session before moving on to Obedience. For those dogs looking to become Therapy Dogs we especially recommend starting early and having two Kindergarten sessions (12 classes), then moving on to the Obedience level.

For the first class (orientation), we have the puppies stay at home. Only the Puppy Parents attend. Orientation is extremely important. You need to understand why your puppy is doing what it is doing and the reasoning behind the training methods we recommend.
