Basic Obedience Classes

Our Puppy Kindergarten classes run throughout the year. We hold classes at 6:00 PM and 7:00 PM on Mondays. The next class in a given time slot will usually begin the week after the current class ends (major holidays excluded). We typically post the dates for the next class shortly after the 3rd week of the current class.

Our Jumpstart and Advanced Jumpstart classes usually start up 2 weeks after the conclusion of the previous session. During winter months, the ending dates may change due to our having to cancel classes due to unsafe weather-related conditions.

All puppy classes are held in the small building at the front of the NDT site. The location varies for the Jumpstart classes. Check the "notes" for the class you're interested in.

Please call 734-995-7200 or email info@northfielddogtraining.com with any questions. We will reply as soon as possible.

We also schedule private lessons. Leave a message for us at 734-995-7200 or email info@northfielddogtraining.com. We will work with you to find a mutually agreeable time.

Puppy Kindergarten

Teach obedience commands (come, sit, down, stay, basic controlled walking) and socialize your puppy (puppies get to play with each other during class, how many weeks depends on the makeup of each class) Discussion topics include spaying and neutering, how to handle children and puppies, multi pet households and solving chewing, housebreaking and jumping problems. Please check with your vet as some vets recommend the young puppies to have had the second in the series of distemper vaccinations before attending a group training class but some are fine with them attending after the initial vaccine depending on age, breed and other factors. There is a limit of 2 people per puppy and children need to be 10 to come to the class without a dedicated adult. If you have more then 2 people wanting to come please contact us at info@northfielddogtraining.com to see if we might have space/room in the class you are attending...

Prerequisites

Puppy must be between 10 weeks and 4 months old when the class begins. If you have a larger breed puppy the younger you can start the better! Please email info@northfielddogtraining.com with questions.
