TRAINING


Haus Juris German Shepherds

Group Lessons

Here at Haus Juris we have many group classes to choose from. Work on common issues such as pulling on the leash, jumping, mouthing, hyper-activity and more in a group setting. Our group classes range in different levels depending on you and your dogs needs. You and your dog will learn in a supporting environment with peers at the same level. We will stress developing a strong relationship with your dog as well as getting both of you communicating on the same frequency. Haus Juris emphasizes the importance of foundations in order to set you up for success in the future. Group classes are important to teach your dog how to work with distractions.

Private Lessons

Receive a special tailored program for you and your dog with private lessons.

Private lessons at Haus Juris allow for a training plan just for your individual dog. Any topic can be covered from precision-perfect heeling to behavioral modification. You will have one of Haus Juris' trainers give you the undivided attention you and your dog may need. The individuality of a private lesson helps many dogs learn faster. It also can be better for the dog because we can go at your dog's pace and learning availability. No matter the issue (aggression, leash-pulling, jumping, heel work, etc.), Haus Juris has your back.

** When you come to training, please BE PREPARED! DO NOT feed your dog before class and make sure you have a 6 foot leash. You will also want to have LOTS of yummy treats that your dog will love. All of the supplies mentioned above are available in the Haus Juris Kennel Store. Hours of Operation: Monday - Saturday 9am to 3pm and Sundays from 9am to 1pm.
