  • “We have been customers of Especially for Pets since we first got our Great Dane four years ago. He is an EFP poster child, having been both obedience trained and raised on EFP merchandise. The premium products you offer, the service, information, and smiles you hand out, and the wellness you bring to the community of companion animals in your neighborhood is unparalleled. We cannot express our gratitude enough for doing what you do.” - Sasha S.

Beginner
This course is designed to help create a positive relationship between dogs and their families. Techniques will be used that compliment canine language and nature. This makes it easier for your dog to understand what you are trying to convey. We will address the most common behavioral issues as we establish a common language for training and control. You will learn how to effectively communicate with your dog and gain a better understanding of canine behavior. In Beginner Obedience, we provide the necessary tools to establish a secure and successful relationship. This is the first level class for dogs five months and over.

Graduate Puppy
As puppies mature and become more capable, they enter into a developmental period that may include some challenging behavior. This course is designed to build on the training and behavioral skills you learned in Puppy Kindergarten, while encouraging and defining your consistency and leadership abilities. Consistency, reliability and focus are some of the primary training attributes we will work on. In addition, we work off-lead so that puppies learn to practice appropriate social behavior and off-lead control. For dogs five months and over.

Graduate Puppy / Intermediate
As puppies mature and become more capable, they enter into a developmental period that may include some challenging behavior. This course is designed to build on the training and behavioral skills you learned in Puppy Kindergarten, while encouraging and defining consistency and leadership abilities. Consistency, reliability and focus are some of the primary training attributes we will work on. In addition, we will work off-lead so that puppies learn to practice appropriate social behavior and off-lead control. Through various exercises that mirror every day encounters and real life situations, your dog will be encouraged to rely more on your guidance while practicing confidence and control. With this higher level of distraction, we will address the practical aspects of owning a dog that is well mannered at home and in public. For dogs five months and over.
