Project Reward Descriptions & Times

Project REWARD classes began as a way to  offer free puppy and basic obedience group sessions to any dog adopted from SGDR.  But it isn’t just for Snooty alum.  
Did you know that if you adopt a puppy from any local municipal shelter you can sign up for a free session of Puppy Foundation classes?  We are also here for you if you are struggling with behavior issues and feel you cannot afford the help you need.

Training Classes are a great opportunity to start a foundation with you dog as well as get the unruly dog under control. Our classes are geared towards obtaining a family pet that is well behaved in the home as well in public. Classes include Puppy, & Basic obedience.

Puppies 6 months and younger adopted from local shelters are given a free Puppy Foundations class. (proof of adoption required)

Puppy Foundations

The earlier you start training, the easier it will be. During the 6 week course we will start the fundamental skills needed to become a well mannered adult, while providing appropriate socialization with people, dogs and the environment.

This class is for puppies 9 weeks to 15 weeks at the start of class.

Learn how to safely socialize, crate/house training, safe handling skills and while building your puppies foundation for obedience using reward based, motivational training.

After completing this course, expect to understand how to have your puppy give you eye contact, sit, down, come, walk appropriately an age appropriate equipment and settle.

Class will be approximately 1 hour, with group play being held at the end.
