Dog Training Classes

Peninsula Pups is more than just a daycare! We also offer obedience classes led by our Certified Dog Trainer, Colin Keith. Colin works in the daycare during the week and is an expert in dog behavior. He was schooled at Tarheel Canine Training in Sanford, NC and has over 20 years of dog training experience.  Colin is excellent at teaching you and your dog how to speak the same language. The commands learned are just a bonus though. The real reward is the special relationship that is built between you and your dog when you train together.

Freshman Class

This class is for puppies under the age of six months. Socialization and basic obedience are the main focus such as sit, stay, come, leave it and walking on a leash. Common puppy issues like potty training and nipping are addressed as well.

Sophomore Class

This class is for dogs over the age of six months that have not had any formal training. Basic obedience is the foundation for this class, learning commands such as sit, stay, come, leave it and walking on a leash.

Junior Class

Must have passed Freshman/Sophomore Class or equivalent. This class takes basic obedience and applies it to real life situations, for example, teaching your dog to sit and stay with numerous distractions. Higher level commands are also learned such as heel and finish.

Senior Class

Must have passed Junior Class or equivalent. This class focuses on fine-tuning learned commands from previous classes. Also prepares you and your dog to take the AKC Canine Good Citizen test. 

After School Special

Must have passed Junior Class at Peninsula Pups.  This class is for parents who want to focus on a few specific commands or behaviors that their dog has not mastered.  Colin will work individually with you and your dog in a class setting.  The class size will be small so you and your dog can receive the attention you’ll need for this special class. 

Advanced Placement Off-Leash Class

Must have passed Junior Class at Peninsula Pups.  This class is for parents who want to take their relationship with their dog to the next level.  Commands such as leave it, come and walking will be learned off-leash.  Class will be held outside in a fenced area at the Humane Society.  The class size will be small and Colin must approve enrollment.

Independent Study

Colin can work one-on-one with you and your dog either at our facility or in your home. Training is tailored to fit your dog’s individual needs.
