Dog Days of Buffalo

Training

Puppy Kindergarten

Six-week class for puppies up to six months of age
This class will get you started on the right path by using positive reinforcement methods to teach you and your puppy basic obedience commands such as sit, down, stay, leave it, drop it, and more. We will also go over some common puppy problem behaviors like potty training, play biting, pulling on the leash, jumping and chewing. A must for new dog owners.

Basic Obedience

Six-week class for dog over six months of age (No pre-requisites)
Training is essential to having a long loving relationship with your dog and it’s never too late to start. Join our group class to learn how to help your dog be a welcome and well mannered member of your family. All the basic commands like sit, down, stay, walking on leash, coming when called, and polite greeting are covered in detail. We also will help you address other common behavioral issues that can arise with any dog.

Advanced Obedience

Six-week class for dogs that have already taken an obedience class (discount available if you have taken our basic obedience or puppy class)
This is a fun class that will use all of the commands you and your dog have already learned and add in more distractions to make the commands solid. In this class you and your dog will play obedience games to advance your training and keep it fun. Your dog won’t even realize he’s learning. This is a great class to get you prepared for the AKC Canine Good Citizen class.

AKC Canine Good Citizen

Six-week class for dogs that have already taken an obedience class (discount available if you have taken Advanced Obedience here)
This class is for dogs with a great grasp of basic obedience commands and good manners. The Canine Good Citizen test is a 10 part test to see how well mannered your dog is and how well they listen to your commands. We will have a 5 week prep class to get ready for the test. The test will be administered in week 6 by an AKC certified evaluator.

Tricks Class

Five-week class for any dog that knows their basic obedience commands (No pre-requisites)
This is a fun class designed to teach you and your dog some new tricks. You will use your basic obedience commands to learn tricks like play dead, army crawl, roll over, sit pretty and much more.

About Town

Five-week class for dogs that have already taken an obedience class and have a great knowledge of their commands and are people and dog friendly
This class will use all of your dog’s basic obedience commands in real life settings. The class will take walks in public places to expand the dogs obedience levels with distractions. The class will meet in a new location every week. Previous excursions include Spot Coffee, The Bidwell Farmers market and Tuesday night Concert series, as well as The Barkyard and Delaware Park.  This class is only offered in the warmer months

Walk With Me

This is a fun 5 week class that is specifically for dogs who pull, zig-zag, and try to drag you towards everything you pass.  Help your dog learn to walk politely next to you, using positive reinforcement methods as well as walks in public places to practice with distractions.  Family participation is strongly recommended.

Barky Dog

This is a 5 week class that is specifically for dogs who misbehave on leash; barking and lunging towards other people and dogs.  Help your dog focus on you and walk politely on leash without misbehaving.  Using positive reinforcement methods and walks in public places we will practice good behaviors on leash with distractions.

Play and Train

This is a program designed to train your dog while you’re away. Your dog will come in for the day and train in the morning and play in supervised play groups in the afternoon. Commands trained include but are not limited to sit, stay, lie down, come when called, leave it, and walking on leash. If you have any training requests please call and speak with one of our trainers.

Private Lessons

One-hour private training and problem solving classes solely dedicated to you and your dog. Classes take place either here in our facility in a state of the art private training room studio, or in the comfort of your own home. Private lessons are often used to work on problem behaviors or to learn all your basic obedience commands. Please call one of our trainers to discuss your needs and see what program would work best for you and your family.
