Dog School

Our goal at Dog School is to teach you how to help your dog become a well-behaved member of your family. Our instructor will share her years of experience and show you ways to easily transform that wiggly out-of-control puppy or young adult dog into an easy-to-manage family member.

The River Valley Veterinary Service Dog School offers friendly, experienced instructors, with classes available for young and older dogs. We recognize that each dog is an individual, and different breeds require different training methods.

Class Descriptions

$125 / 6 weeks

Instructor:  Tiana Schmidt

A fun and fast-paced class for puppies 8 – 20 weeks of age, two people with a face mask are welcome to attend.

This six-week class will prepare you and your puppy for a lifetime of companionship and fun together. Your puppy will learn basic commands such as sit, down, stay and come when called. Through games, drills, and other activities, we will help your puppy to become a confident and well-socialized member of your family. Health and behavior topics will be discussed by our experienced instructors. On the last night of class,  you and your puppy will use the skills you’ve learned to participate in some fun training games. So, bring your puppy a 4-6 foot leash, a buckle collar or Gentle Leader, and your sense of humor!

(Please – no flexi leads or training collars.)
