Puppy Training Classes

Training a puppy can be hard work. To set them up for success, it’s important to focus on socialization and behavior right from the start. That’s why we offer a series of classes, from puppy playtime to puppy kindergarten, that will help your young dog learn all the essentials.

FREE Puppy Playtime:

This is strictly for proud puppy parents with pups under six months. Starting now, and every Saturday morning, you and your puppy can join in FREE puppy playtime. Puppy playtime is from 8:30 a.m. – 9:15 a.m. and takes place right in our Green Bay pet care facility. What makes this program so appealing is that new puppy owners can bond with other new puppy owners while the pups begin to build proper dog socializing skills. Every puppy that joins in the fun must have proof of vaccinations and/or shots started. This is a fun and free program, perfect for any puppy and their new owners. There is no registration required, simply show up and join in the bonding experience.


Puppy Socialization:

Open to puppies age 8-16 weeks. This is a new Open Enrollment Class. The flexible rolling schedule allows you and your puppy to join the six-week session on any week depending on available space in the class.  In the new Puppy Socialization curriculum, each class session is a self-contained lesson that builds skills and experiences on a weekly basis.  Basic behavior skills and concepts are taught, practiced in class,  then used in a simulated, real-life setting.  Call Golrusk for more details.

Puppy Kindergarten:

Open to all puppies who completed Puppy Socialization OR are between the ages of 4-6 months. This is an Open Enrollment Class.  The flexible rolling schedule allows you and your dog to join the six-week puppy training class on any week as long as we have space available.  Each self-contained class will teach you and your pet how to work together as a team.  Skills that will be taught are walking on leash, coming when called, responding to their name, and commands such as “Sit”, “Down”, “Stand”, “Relax”, and “Go to place”.

Tina is great. We have two labs that should have been trained as puppies, but… Tina came to the rescue and helped us take them on as two-year-olds at 70+ pounds each. She gave us lots of great advice, practical techniques, and personal attention. The dogs improved a lot…and loved her visits, even though she was making them behave while here. The dogs are doing well and now spending a lot more family time with us than before because they are well-behaved enough to join the family. Thanks!
