Dog Training Calendar
If happiness is having a well-trained dog, then Woodland Veterinary Hospital has plenty of opportunities to keep you and your dog happy! Whether your dog has taken numerous classes before, or is a training rookie, there is a class that is the right fit. Our progressive, current, modern-style trainers have joined the Woodland Vet team: Candy Gaiser of Jumpstart Agility and Woodland Vet’s own Danika Fleming. They are here to teach you how to communicate with your dog without force, in a loving, humane, and empathetic manner.
Puppy Preschool and Kindergarten classes are in session!
Are you seeking a paw-sitive training experience for your new little bundle of joy? We offer Puppy Preschool and Kindergarten classes, headed by Woodland Veterinary Hospital’s very own Danika Fleming! Our puppy preschool and kindergarten classes are taught indoors where there is less distraction for your dog. For dogs that are more comfortable with more space, an outside class may be a more comfortable environment. Classes are taught by setting your dog up for success. You will be teaching your dog hand signals along with verbal cues. Dogs are on a soft collar or a front link-type harness. No collar corrections are applied.
Puppies from 7-12 weeks of age at the start of class are eligible to sign up for Puppy Preschool, and will need to have had at least one DHPP vaccine, as well as their Bordetella vaccine. Puppies from 13 weeks to 8 months of age are eligible for Kindergarten, and will need to be current on their DHPP and Bordetella vaccines, and if they are old enough, their Rabies vaccine as well.
Our next classes begin on May 3rd! Puppy Preschool will run from 4-5pm and Kindergarten will run from 5-6 pm. Continuing Obedience will be held from 6-7pm. The price for the four week session is $125. You must register and pay for the course in order to hold a spot for “Spot”! Spots will go fast, so give us a call at 530-666-2461 and enroll your puppy today!
We will also be offering a Continuing Obedience course from 6-7pm for puppies (and owners) who would like to keep refining their dogs’ skills. Your dog must have attended a class here at WVH (either Puppy Preschool or Kindergarten, or private lessons) and must be between 4-8 months of age in order to be eligible for the Continuing course.
If you have an older puppy who could still use a good basic education, please feel free to call us as well, and we will see if we can make separate arrangements for private lessons.
Agility is Back!
Have you seen our agility yard? It’s packed with fun jumps, tunnels, and see-saws – just waiting for you and your dog to come, learn, and enjoy! Woodland Veterinary Hospital offers evening agility classes on Tuesday nights, taught by Candy Gaiser. Candy’s experience as an agility competitor, trainer, and judge will serve your dog well, regardless of his or her skill level and experience. Agility classes are $155 for a six week session, with new classes starting on May 9th! *Classes are occasionally cancelled due to extreme weather conditions, so this start date may be subject to change*
