This class is for the new owner of a puppy. Housebreaking issues, biting, chewing are addressed along with information on crate training, name recognition, coming when called, learning to be groomed and handled, walking on a leash, sit, down and wait. This class will offer new confidence building experiences for the puppy, including introduction to tunnels, balance boards and new surfaces, as well as the opportunity for the puppy to see and interact with other dog/handler teams. A great way to get your puppy started.

The Orlando Dog Training Club is very concerned with the outbreak of a highly contagious canine influenza virus known as H3N2 CIV.

This flu is an airborne virus and has been known to be spread by dogs that do not show symptoms. Some of the more common symptoms are a dry cough, lethargy, mucus discharge from eyes or nose, and possible fever.

We do suggest that you consult your veterinarian about having your dog vaccinated with the Merck Bivalent vaccine.

Any dog that does not appear to be in good health will be asked to NOT enter our building.

More information about the flu may be obtained from the University of Florida web page.

Thank you for your cooperation and help in not spreading the virus.
