Watch your puppy become a superstar!
We recommend that you get your puppy started in puppy training classes as soon as possible! We only require one round of vaccinations, per the recommendation of local vets, and follow the wise advice of The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior who states that the primary and most important time for puppy socialization is the first three months of his life.

How Our Program Works
BlueDog’s puppy training program works different than any other dog training facility. Our puppy program is more like a gym membership. Start by purchasing a 2 or 6 month membership for your puppy specific to his or her age group, then enroll in as many classes as you like, starting immediately. Once your puppy reaches his or her next developmental stage, your puppy will be enrolled in classes specific for his or her training needs. Once your puppy reaches 6 months of age, your puppy can move on to our adult dog training program to continue their training education, eventually earning their AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate.
In addition to age-specific core training classes for puppies, BlueDog also offers a variety of extra-curricular activities to help you socialize your puppy and reinforce good training to build a great foundation for your puppy. If you wish, you can enroll in seven days a week of puppy training classes and extra curricular activities. It’s that simple!
BlueDog’s puppy training classes are built on many years of training and raising puppies, including our own puppies. We are experts in the field and are here to help. We can help you work through common puppy training issues, help teach a foundation for good manners, provide much needed socialization for your puppy, and give you the first steps to raising a confident, happy, and loving dog.
Our Available Puppy Classes
Our puppy classes are designed to group your puppy with similarly aged puppies for additional socialization benefits. Our training program is tailored for your puppy’s specific age to ensure your puppy can retain and build upon each course as he or she grows!
