Sample Behaviors Taught in Novice Tricks Class (1:00)

My partner and I just concluded the 6-week Puppy Manners with Rachel for our almost 5-month mini goldendoodle (Penny). Some of the new dog owners reading this may feel the same way we did six weeks ago - is Tucker Pup's training worth the premium price compared to a Petsmart/Petco? Without a doubt. Over the course of 6 weeks, Rachel did an exceptional job teaching the dogs (and more importantly, the owners) various skills and training exercises that have made our puppy experience at home so much more enjoyable and manageable. (Note: the exercises are meant to be practiced twice daily, for 15 minutes; you will only get out of the class what you put in). Rachel was particularly good at paying close attention to our puppy, while managing the needs of all the other dogs. I believe that every other owner in the class felt the same way. The facilities are always clean, and as soon as you step into the lobby and are greeted by friendly and professional staff, you realize that signing up for this class was well worth it. We'll be back for Intermediate!
