Here at Dirty Paws, we believe a well-trained dog makes a happy, healthy companion. We want to help create a better, stronger relationship with your dog. Through our Sterling Heights dog training classes, you and your dog will learn to communicate more efficiently and effectively.
Cindy Ford, professional dog trainer, leads the pack in dog training. Sterling Heights is where Cindy calls home, and with 25 years’ experience in obedience, agility, tracking, herding, and more, Dirty Paws is proud to have her as part of our pack!
This program is designed for puppies 12 weeks to 6 months as an introduction to obedience. You will teach your dog how to walk on a leash, and learn commands like “sit,” “down,” and “come.” You and your pup will be introduced to a series of focus and attention exercises that will prepare both of you for his adult life.
At the end of the 6 week course, your puppy will receive the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Medal, and be listed in the official AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Records. In addition, you will receive an AKC Puppy Handbook, plus a monthly email newsletter which will include training tips and up-to-date information every dog owner needs to know.
Class size is small to allow for direct interaction and hands-on training with your AKC Certified S.T.A.R. puppy instructor. The Puppy Program will get you started on the right
paw foot, helping you to build a solid foundation for your puppy.
