Our puppies learn from every experience they have, so why not immerse them in an environment that will teach them to be the best they can be? At Laughing Dog Kennel, we use positive, reward-based training methods to teach your puppy proper manners and obedience. These methods are proven successful and leave your puppy happy and eager to keep learning.
Our trainer, Dan, has over 35 years experience training dogs of all shapes, sizes, ages & temperaments. He can help with anythng from teaching your wild puppy manners & basic obedience to your adult dog's aggression issues. He uses positive reinforcement methods, rewarding good behavior and redirecting behavior you do not want & he guarantees his results. Dan offers private lessons on an ongoing or as needed basis. All dogs must show proof of current vaccinations (Rabies, DHPP & Bordetella) & puppies must have received at least two puppy vaccinations (DHPP or DHLP-P) prior to attending.
Private lessons with Dan will provide you - the guardian - with the instruction & training tools necessary to reinforce the lessons at home. Homework sheets individualized to your dog are given out after each class, so you remember what to practice at home between classes. We all want a dog who comes when called, doesn’t jump on company or steal food from the table. Good behavior starts with puppy kindergarten class, which will establish you as leader and lay the foundation for a lifetime of good behavior.
*Please note: Females cannot attend training classes while they are in heat. Puppies must have proof of at least two puppy vaccinations (DHLP-P or DHP-P) prior to enrollment. Pups over the age of 6 months must show proof of Rabies and Bordetella vaccinations as well. Please call 505-863-DOGS for more information or to sign up!
