Sirius Puppy and Dog Classes are entertaining and interactive for the whole family. Classes run one hour a week for six weeks, focusing on four major topics.
Prevention of Problem Behavior
Learn how to quickly and painlessly house-train your puppy for error-free results.
Keep jumping, barking, digging and chewing from destroying your possessions and your relationship.
Reduce the risk of biting, separation anxiety and other serious behavioral problems.
Learn how to focus and maintain your puppy's attention as the foundation of all communication and training.
Develop a repertoire of useful commands that will keep you in control of walks, play and social interactions.
Practice "emergency" commands that may save your puppy's life.
Socialization (For Both Puppy and Owner)
It's vital that your puppy learn to enjoy interacting with a variety of people and dogs of different sizes and ages.
Off-leash play sessions help establish reliable bite inhibition.
Share the joy of learning with other owners.
Sirius Puppy Classes will help make grooming- bathing, nail clipping, ear and teeth cleaning - a breeze.
Learn to make visits to the veterinarian free from trauma for you, your puppy and the doctor.
Teaching obedience commands alone will not address most behavioral problems. Sirius Behavioral Consulting employs a comprehensive, in-home four-step approach to treating behavioral problems:
A detailed history is combined with observation to arrive at a scientifically accurate diagnosis of the problem(s).
Sirius Behavioral Consulting helps you understand the possible reasons for your dog's actions and develop realistic goals for appropriate behavior and successful treatment.
A management strategy incorporating medical conditions, diet, exercise, socialization and training is developed to assist in changing your dog's behavior.
Behavioral Modification Plan
Finally, a custom-tailored program is designed to help increase your dog's desire to engage in appropriate behaviors. There are no quick fixes and behavior rarely changes overnight. A loving and systematic approach that addresses the cause of unwanted behaviors and not just the symptoms is the key to a more fulfilling long-term relationship.

Sirius has been serving the puppies, dogs and their human families for over 20 years. Sirius Puppy Training is based on the scientifically proven principle that owners have the greatest opportunity to influence their dog’s behavior and temperament during their first eighteen weeks. What puppies learn during their early critical stages determines their future ability to bond with people, socialize with other dogs and respond positively to novel situations. The Sirius Puppy Class Curriculum utilizes positive reward-based methods to help puppies develop into ideal family members and canine citizens.
