PUPPY TRAINING CLASS
Owners will be taught how to view their puppy from a new prospective. All family members are encouraged to participate which maintains consistency and harmony at home.
Our focus will be on off lease puppy socialization. Hand signals as well as spoken commands will be used in class. The learning experience will include the following: sit, stay, leash walking, and the proper start for a recall. Some of the subjects the course will cover are: housebreaking your puppy, inappropriate chewing, garden digging, puppy biting, jumping up and other forms of unwanted behavior. You will learn to understand why these behaviors are happening and how to prevent them.
Wency is the first trainer in Santa Barbara to offer Puppy Training Classes modeled after the successful methods originated by Dr. Dunbar, an Animal Behaviorist and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at UC Berkeley.

BEGINNING NOVICE CLASS
This class is designed for all dog owners who missed Puppy Training Class, and are now regetting it. It is also for Puppy Class Grads who want to reinforce their earlier dog training. Owners will learn how to train their dog to follow commands to sit, stand, stay, come when called, and walk on a leash. The focus of this class will be building a longer attention span, as well as clear communication between dog and owner.
Novice classes are designed for dogs and owners in trouble. Undesirable and individual behavior problems will be discussed along with the correct training methods to help you eliminate the problems. You will learn how to get quick control of your dog while building a positive relationship.
