Janice Tan's Dog Training Service
Classes are currently being held outdoors in Martinez and at my indoor location, conveniently located right off 680 in Walnut Creek at Creekside Lodge (1475 Creekside Drive).

Puppy Classes: I offer six-week group sessions and five-week small group accelerated courses for puppies aged 14 weeks-5.5 months old -- occasionally up to 6 months in some cases. (or once they have received veterinary approval). Note: Sorry, I do NOT offer beginner level classes for dogs older than six months. Your best option with an older pup or adult is to start with private training. We cover the following in Puppy class: sit, down, stay, come, heel, loose leash walking, leave it, watch, wait (at doorways), off (no jumping), socializing with both people and other dogs, basic manners including house training and chewing, fetch, and distance commands. These are structured classes with lesson plans and written homework. Class size is limited so that each puppy and family can get individual attention every week! 

Intermediate and Advanced Classes:  I also offer five-week small group and six-week intermediate level courses for those who have graduated from the puppy class or who would like more advanced training.  These classes emphasize proofing basic commands such as come and stay so that your dog can be reliable in real-life, distracting situations.  I also teach new skills and, when students are interested, lay foundation work for those who want to get a CGC certificate (Canine Good Citizen certificate) or start in Rally.  The Advanced Class is for graduates of Intermediate and includes skills such as off-leash heeling and recalls, out-of-sight group stays, and foundation work for AKC Rally and AKC Obedience. 

If you would like to sign up for a Puppy, Intermediate or Advanced class, please call or email me ASAP (classes fill several weeks in advance). Please note that I cannot guarantee your spot in any class until I have received payment.  Thank you!
