Dog Training Program

All classes are supervised and held in a clean and safe environment. We use only positive training methods.


Muddy Paws Dog Training Presents:


Puppy Play and Learn  *STARTS Saturday, January 17th**

Socialization & basic manners for puppies age 8-20 weeks

Puppy classes are a great way to get a jump-start on training your puppy to become a dog you enjoy living with. The first and foremost goal of puppy classes is to get together puppies of a similar age for play and socialization. Play is the primary way that puppies learn to problem-solve and trouble-shoot. While the puppies are playing, we spend time covering basic training, including problem prevention. This is a drop in class, so you can get started right away!

Time:  Every Saturday 1:00-2:00pm

Cost: $50 for SPCA of TC alum and volunteers/ $65 general public for five classes

Doggy Play Time

This weekly class is a supervised environment for dogs to learn and develop their social skills, or to just give them an opportunity to run around with other dogs in a safe and clean environment.  Owners will learn about dog-to-dog interactions.  It is a great alternative to the Dog Park, and a portion of the fees assist the SPCA of Tompkins County.

Cost for 6 sessions: SPCATC alums $30, all others $60

Cost for 10 sessions: SPCATC alums $40, all others $80

Where: The Dorothy and Roy Park Pet Adoption Center fenced play yard (weather permitting).

When: Every Sunday

Fall - Winter Times:

Small Dogs  1:30 to 2:15 (30-40 lbs or smaller, depending on the dog's need and play style)

Big Dogs  2:30 to 3:15 (40 lbs or larger, depending on the dog's need and play style)

Stories



"My family adopted Hunny in December 2006, after a long search for a dog to adopt.  We were a bit hesitant to look at adult dogs, as we really wanted a puppy for our young daughter to grow up with, but when we saw Hunny, we fell in love instantly! Though we were initially concerned about adopting a pitbull mix because of their unfortunate reputation, we can now say without a doubt that she has been a wonderful addition to our family. While she was a bit shy at first, she has adapted beautifully to her new home, and enjoys roaming our two acres, playing with her cat buddies, Charlie and Alex, and snuggling with our daughter, Alivia. After loving and learning with Hunny, we are looking forward to spending our lives together. We encourage anyone with any doubts about adopting a pitbull or pitbull mix dog to take a look at our success story and see what wonderful, amazing, loyal pets they can be."

-Rob, Melissa, and Alivia
