Details & Requirements

Dog training is currently an unregulated industry. Literally anyone can call themselves a dog trainer. Our credentials set up apart: All of Bravo!Pup’s trainers are graduates, or are current students of,  The Academy of Dog Trainers, the undisputed world leader in advanced education in dog training and behavior, commonly referred to as “The Harvard of Dog Training.”
You can rest assured we use only modern, science-based humane training methods for an unrivaled training experience. 

  • Basic Obedience – sit, down, stay, come, leash skills.
  • Manners – no jumping, don’t touch, drop it, calm down.
  • Distraction Skills – learns to focus and work in a group setting.
  • All Things Dog – common behavior problems are discussed in every class.
  • Detailed homework and training handouts provided after each class.
  • Dog’s age is 18 weeks or older.
  • Current vaccinations: Rabies, Distemper and Parvo.
  • We recommend, but do not require, vaccination against Canine Flu for all dogs: Canine Influenza Virus H3N2/H3N8. Please consult your veterinarian.
  • Dog MUST be friendly with dogs and people, in a group setting and while on leash. 
  • Dog must NOT be reactive to other dogs while on leash. 
  • If you are unsure about your dog’s behavior around other dogs or people, please email us your concerns: info@bravopup.com
  • Please review our Refund Policy prior to registration.
  • Make-up classes: See our FAQ Section.
  • Maximum two adults per class for our Pet Food Express locations.
  • All other locations allow more than two students, so bring the family!
  • At 18 weeks a pup is entering their teenage years, with adult teeth and jaw strength. They might still have their puppy energy, but is it not appropriate or safe to train teenage puppies with the toddlers in our PUP1 class. 
  • Current vaccination records.
  • Lots of bite size treats.
  • Stuffed Kong or Bully Stick for dog to chew on during calm time.
  • Portable dog bed.
  • Standard flat collar or a front clipping harness, plus a 5 or 6 foot, standard leash (check our Resources page for ideas.)
  • Our classes meet once a week for 5 weeks; these are not drop-in, as each class builds upon the skills learned the class before.
  • We want you to succeed! We provide detailed homework for you to practice your newly learned skills before the next class. The more you practice, the better for you and your pup! 
  • Is your dog shy and fearful around people? Are you unsure if an in-person class will be too stimulating or stressful for your dog? 
  • If yes, we suggest our live, online “Life Skills for Shy/Fearful Dogs.”  This
  • popular, live, online class will help you slowly bring your dog out of their shell to begin enjoying time with other dogs, or happily accompany you on a walk. 
  • If you are experiencing difficulty walking your dog due to these behaviors, our live, online “Leash Reactive ” class is the place to start.  A reactive dog is not appropriate for an in-person class until these issues are addressed.
  • We teach skillful handling of your leash-reactive dog, along with environmental awareness and management for a more relaxing experience while out on walks.
  • Learn to read your dog’s body language so you can respond BEFORE they react.
  • Have you not been able to socialize your dog during these covid times and are wanting to do so, but taking your dog out is too stressful for you and them? 
  • Learning how to “read” your dog’s body language in order to build their confidence is the way to go.
  • We suggest our live, remote Frolic or Fight class. This is an essential class for all dog owners to learn how dogs communicate and play.

Covid-19 Protocols

Safe, Effective Solutions During COVID-19

Covid-19 protocols are continually changing. We are aware that many industries are relaxing their mask wearing requirements. We are also aware that there are people who teach and attend our classes with compromised immune systems. For these reasons our instructors continue to wear masks and we ask our students to do so as well. We do our best to provide the best training experience possible and use speaker/microphones in the locations where the ability to hear is affected by the use of masks by the instructor. 

We are incredibly grateful for all of our clients, and are committed to keeping everyone safe and healthy as we navigate these ever changing times!
