Upcoming Proper Pupper Courses

Note for all Proper Pupper Courses:

You must attend ALL nine classes in the Proper Puppers Course to achieve desired training results. Each lesson builds on the previous class. The content provided in this course is very condensed so missing a class is detrimental to your pup’s learning. We cannot guarantee make up classes if you cannot make it to the scheduled lessons.

A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT IS REQUIRED TO FULLY PARTICIPATE IN THIS COURSE!

Please note that the introductory seminar and puppy social is mandatory to attend prior to coming to the hands on classes. If you don’t attend, you can not participate in the course and your course tuition will be forfeit.

ZOOM Lessons are not recorded and must be watched live. All updates and correspondence is done through a course specific facebook group so you will need a facebook account to participate in this course.

Due to provincial COVID-19 laws, we are limiting our class sizes to 10 people (2 trainers and 8 puppies per group). Unfortunately this means that we can only allow one handler per puppy for in person lessons. As soon as the restrictions are lifted, more handlers will be welcome to attend!

Please review our training philosophy and tools page prior to registration. Course fees are non refundable!

Puppies only need their first round of vaccinations and need to stay up to date after that.

April 12th – 2 spots remaining

Monday evenings and Saturday afternoons

This course begins with a human-only introductory seminar on ZOOM.
This intro class will be 7:00pm-9:00pm on April 12th
Leash and collar pick up will be on Thursday April 15th

Monday classes will be from 7:00pm-8:00pm on ZOOM. (Classes usually run late though!)

Choose which time slot works best for you on the registration form!

The first “hands-on” lesson on April 15 will be an indoor puppy social from 7:15-9:15pm so we can size their collars and get them started with healthy socializing as soon as possible! Due to COVID-19 safety regulations, only staff and puppies will be allowed in the building for the time being. Puppies will be dropped off one at a time by their owners and we will work on training with the pups and give them a chance to play and socialize together indoors! Drop offs and pick ups usually take 15-20 minutes. Your pup will get a minimum of one hour of play time and socializing!

Puppies only need their first round of vaccinations and need to stay up to date after that.

If classes need to be cancelled due to weather, we MAY switch to having an indoor puppy social. We will cancel a maximum of ONE outdoor class and replace it with an indoor social. If more than one class has to be cancelled, it will be postponed. Hands on classes are very essential to your success in this course and we don’t want to cancel more than necessary. As Calgary’s weather is unpredictable, please keep a few extra Thursday evenings free!

Class dates:

April 12th, 19th, 26th, 3rd and 10th on ZOOM
April 15th Leash and collar sizing/puppy social
