Tucker Pup's is considered an "essential business" and we are open and available for boarding, daycare, and grooming.

Training is currently on hold through April 7, when the statewide lockdown expires. The government could push this date back, so we are not scheduling any classes or socials until we have more certainty.

We will soon be providing virtual classes and private lessons, where you will participate from your device at home. They would follow the same curriculum, and you would still be able to access TrainTrack in order to view the homework, watch videos, and track your progress. Let us know if you are interested. If you have already signed up for training, we will let you know more very soon.

Learn more about adjustments we are making during the coronavirus outbreak.


Our Adult Manners dog training course teaches fundamental skills, listening, and self-control across a number of different behaviors. This is important because as your dog gets older, its desire to listen decreases, making daily interaction such as walks more challenging.

The course includes:
  • Training skills:  The course teaches skills such as walking without pulling, focusing on you, coming directly to you, waiting patiently before a command is given, not jumping on people, leaving items alone, and more.
  • Off-leash socialization:  Each class also includes play time, where the dogs get to run and play with the others off leash. This is important for building their socialization and confidence. The trainer will give you advice about what to allow and watch for during play, and how to correct your dog's behavior in an effective manner.
  • Class discussion: A full discussion of important training topics such as:

    • How and why dogs learn
    • The importance and use of positive reinforcement
    • How many people unintentionally create unwanted behaviors in their dog
    • How to successfully use your voice, posture, body language, and more
    • Corrective techniques that work
    • Training equipment and rewards that we recommend
    • And much more

You will be amazed at what your dog can accomplish in only six weeks!



Manners Class Graduation Day (2:21)



Brian was fantastic! Even when our dog Lenny struggled and got distracted, he kept us positive and was extremely patient. In addition to great training lessons, he also gave us tips on things going on at home. I’d highly recommend this class to any new dog owner.
