At Petropolis, training is customized to each dog. Our goal is to provide you and your dog with a positive, enriching experience that will develop and enhance the relationship between you and your pup. Build this positive relationship with your pet by using a force-free training approach. All dogs can be fearful of certain situations and these fears often stifle a dog’s ability to learn. Our trainers are skilled in detecting such fears and find solutions to avoid them or modify them through a unique training plan focused on empowering your pet through reward and praise.

Puppy Socialization Classes
Many people think "socialization" means simply introducing your puppy to other dogs, but it's so much more than that! Socializing your puppy means introducing them to new sights, sounds, and experiences and creating positive, pleasant experiences. Like children, puppies carry these experiences with them for the rest of their lives, and they're crucial in helping them become happy, confident adult dogs.
Founded on the principles of Pet Empowerment, we have developed a 4-week Socialization Class to help your puppy get started on the right paw. This weekly class was designed by experts in Animal Behavior and it focuses on a scientific approach to building and maintaining healthy behavior. Not only will you and your puppy learn the basics of how a dog learns, you will get to practice socialization skills in a safe and controlled environment to make certain you are set up for success. If your puppy is between eight and twelve weeks of age, click below to learn more about the class.
