This drop in program is essential to kick off and compliment your obedience and behavior work. Your puppy will learn to be behave appropriately with dogs, people, strangers, examination, grooming, separation and physical challenges while learning to pay attention to you. Critical development for puppies is actually between 3-12 weeks of age so starting as close to 9 weeks as possible is recommended. This program is the key that allows us to put puppies into Level One Obedience without having to do a puppy program ahead of time so you save time and money. It also means you end up with a puppy that is more socially balanced and much more trained much sooner. Puppies must have proof of most recent vaccination and must have been with you for 10 days.

Scholars is the only school where owners of older dogs get access to the critical information provided to puppy owners as it is pertinent to dogs of all ages. We have all the work on videos and due to the challenges of of COVID-19, our socialization videos are FREE for everyone within our online program!.

Outstanding! it was 15 years ago that we first took classes from Diane McWhinnie with Scholars in Collars! 15 years later, new puppy in tow, we found this Dog Training school even more competent than before. They are attentive, kind, helpful, knowledgeable and very skilled! Our family will always highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a positive training school with experienced trainers! Thanks Scholars in Collars!
Diane and all the trainers are amazing! They really help you understand and communicate with your dog. They always provide positive support and they really care about your dog. We appreciated all their personalized advice and guidance. Our puppy did so well with their help and we learned so much. The seminar was so informative and the puppy drop ins were so fun! We can't wait to start Level 2!
This is a place I take each of my puppies, whether they are going to be loved pets living as my companions or well loved working dogs in dog sports. The classes are well run, the ratio of trainers and assistants to dogs ensures that even little quirks which need to be turned into talents or better behaviours are not overlooked. It is always informative and fun for my dogs and for me, even as a trainer myself. The years of experience show through at every turn!
Whether you have a dog or you're getting a dog, you will learn how to have an obedient dog without any harsh or threatening techniques. Training should not be something you "subject" your dog to, but should be a fun activity you do together.
