The Classes

Want your dog to learn and play in a safe, clean and fun environment? We teach many Basic Obedience behaviors like sit, down, recall and loose leash walking, not jumping, etc, but we also do a playtime in all of our classes. During the playtime you will learn what is appropriate play and how to stop rough play. We also us the playtime to help strengthen the Recall (come) and other behaviors.

We offer Basic Manners Classes at multiple locations throughout San Diego County. Find the class location, date and time you are interested in then sign up at the class location or contact Beckman’s Dog training at [email protected]

Basic Manners Class – We offer two Basic Manners classes that run one after another. Basic Manners (A) with a focus on loose leash walking and Basic Manners (B) with a focus on recall. We recommend you take which ever class is offered next, then after your 5 week class is over take the next Basic Manners Class. We have found that taking both 5 week classes is helpful to most people. Both classes teach sit, down and other basic obedience and both have a playtime but they differ in a few behaviors and each focuses on the very important behaviors of loose leash walking or Recall (come).

In Basic Manners Class you and your dog will learn basic obedience behaviors like, sit, down, place, loose leash walking or recall, etc. We also focus on problems behaviors like jumping and barking. We do a talk at the end of each class on things like chew toys, exercise, barking, etc.

Puppy Socialization Class – Puppy socialization is the single most integral step in raising a happy and mentally sound puppy. Lack of proper socialization during a puppy’s critical periods of development (8-16 weeks) can be very detrimental. It’s important to proactively build their confidence and set the stage for a lifetime of good behavior in a fun and safe environment. In this class, your puppy will have the opportunity to interact with other people and dogs to ensure that they will be properly socialized at this critical age in their developmental period. Playtime and socialization will be an integral part of this puppy program. We will also go over Potty Training, jumping, nipping, and some basic obedience. This class will also set you and your dog up for our Basic Manners Class.
