Puppy training and obedience training are both enjoyable experiences with College for Pets. We work closely with you from start to finish to make sure that you and your new partner kindle the best relationship possible.MIKE ROBERTSON, OWNER
Between 8 and 16 weeks is the most critical developmental time in a puppy’s life. During this time puppies are hard-wired to absorb and evaluate the world and all the experiences it offers. Begin early with puppy training to make sure your dog starts off right.
Puppy Preschool provides exposure opportunities to varying sights, sounds, smells, textures and environments. We introduce a few basic control commands.
Common behavior concerns such as housebreaking and chewing are discussed.
Finally, proper social interaction with puppies and people is encouraged.
Puppy Preschool has “rolling enrollment,” which means you can join the class and begin your six week series of classes at any time. Your puppy must have received their first round of vaccinations, including Canine Cough, to attend class.
Imagine the freedom afforded by a well behaved dog. A dog who doesn’t jump on guests, steal food from the table or drag you down the street. It is not as difficult you might think.
At White Mountain College for Pets our experienced instructors pride themselves on providing a gentle, yet effective approach to dog training. With over 70 combined years of experience, we are sure to have an approach and program to best suit your needs.
Our Basic Obedience program utilizes the latest advances in behavioral science to deliver skills fast and efficiently. We offer a 5 week comprehensive group class or choice of three private Combination Programs. Our combination programs provide a perfectly balanced variety of instruction, distraction opportunities and coaching to keep you and your dog centered on the path to awesomeness.
Beyond the low-distraction environment in basic training lies the often challenging “real world.” Rockstar Obedience will prepare your dog to conquer the temptations that await him.
We will guide you through techniques to create amazing focus in your dog, regardless of what the world throws at him. Here’s some of the distractions your dog will learn to ignore.
The basic command skill set will be strengthened and commands executed immediately and at a distance.
Your dog will need to have completed our Basic Obedience class prior to enrolling in Rockstar Obedience.
Our Comprehensive Puppy training program.
The Right Start Program is the best choice for a well-rounded education for your puppy. Start with Puppy Preschool, then graduate into basic obedience. These two courses round out our complete puppy training program.
"Mike was so dedicated to a problem I had with one of my pups. He went above and beyond to try to retrain her. He gave me his honest opinion with a great resolution to the problem."
"It has changed everything! Our house is calmer and our walks are a pleasure. Honestly, I wish we did this a long time ago!"
"The facility was clean, smelled nice, was organized and comfortable for both myself and my pup. I give another 5 stars."
I know I couldn’t have done it by myself and I owe it all to Mike at White Mountain College for Pets and thank him for the help he has given to my dog and me... I couldn’t be more happy that I decided to go there.
I honestly can't believe the change in such a short space of time and am so so proud of her and so thankful to you Karen for making life with our dogs even more enjoyable.
Today, Finn has readjusted to the household! He still is full of it, but he is a puppy! I am consistent in using the training Mike showed me and our house is happy again!
We now have a safer home, a safer and happier dog, and we are much more knowledgeable owners. The private sessions even gave us the confidence to continue training on our own, and Mike is only an email away.
Just like with a child, training your puppy to behave from the very beginning is easier than correcting bad behavior later in life. The best time to start training a puppy is between 8 and 16 weeks of age. This is a critical development period in their life when they are hardwired to absorb the things around them.
We highly suggest enrolling in our Right Stuff Program. This includes Puppy Preschool and Basic Obedience. Both classes combined will provide a solid foundation for your new puppy.
White Mountain College for Pet’s services include: dog obedience training, service dog training, assistance dog training, therapy dog training, puppy training classes, cat behavior training and classes, dog boarding and training, and psychiatric service dog training.
