Basic Obedience Puppy Training

WHY should you take training classes with your puppy?

Before your eyes, that adorable little puppy you added to your family will grow into an adult dog! If you let those cute but annoying habits continue, they will become the bad habits of a bigger, adult dog. The best thing you can do for your pup and your family is establish a solid foundation of basic obedience which will build a stronger bond with your dog. After all, this is a lifelong commitment! BBDT workshops are designed with your needs in mind but all the basics are taught.

Why is training so important?!

Training is the essential foundation to peaceful coexistence! Best Buddies will show you how to spend a few minutes each day 'communicating' with your dog and strengthening the bond. We'll show you how bad behaviors can be replaced with good behaviors.


Lack of training and the inability to correct unwanted behaviors is often what lands a potentially great dog at an overcrowded shelter.

Teaching a dog and giving the owner the tools needed to succeed will make for a long, happy relationship with your ‘best buddy’!

What is Puppy training?

In the BBDT Basic Obedience Puppy Training workshop participants will gain a solid foundation of the important core commands, and enjoy fun games! Everything we do in class strengthens the bond between you and your pup, which makes for a better learning experience!

Some may wish to continue on with additional classes.

We recommend Best Manners which will cement the foundation established in Basic Obedience Puppy Training.

What age are dogs in this workshop?

Puppies 8 weeks and older can attend the basic obedience and socialization puppy training workshop. You can never start too early socializing your pup or establishing a solid training foundation with your new family member! 


For your dog's safety, please be certain your pup is properly vaccinated before coming into a group class.


The easiest way to do this is by talking with your veterinarian to make sure your puppy has had the vaccinations needed to support his/her immune system.

Professional, insured carers make sure your dog has a vacation as great as yours!

How many weeks of classes in this workshop?

This workshop is five consecutive weeks of 90-minute classes. 

We want training class to be a FUN experience for your dog. We want your dog to enjoy coming to class and for learning to be part of the enjoyment.
