Theoretical Component

Puppy university is based on two modules. The theoretical component contains 3 hours of lecture with video and/or demo dog support. Here you will learn Nino’s proven techniques. You will acquire new skills that you will practice with your dog, so that your dog’s obedience develops quickly, with precision, and happiness.

Practical Component

The practical component is spent on the training field where you will be practicing these new skills with your puppy or young dog under the skillful coaching of Nino. Those without a dog can audit this course, or request a loaner dog for events held at our STSK9 facility in VA. 

Some of the topics we will cover during the practical component are:

  • Focus, expression, speed, precision and consistency for young dogs
  • Different styles of creating perfect heeling
  • Correct way to create drive and grip
  • First steps to a clean “out “command
  • How to switch and moderate drives

 

After completion you will receive a certificate of attendance, and a useful handout with tips and reminders for the course. Puppy University™ is the perfect precursor to our E-Collar University™.
