Valor K-9 Academy offering private puppy training classes, group classes to return in Phase 3

MEDICAL LAKE, Wash. — Valor K-9 Academy is booking private training sessions for pet owners with puppies under Phase 2 of Safe Start.

To participate, your puppy must be 10-24 weeks old.

Valor K-9 Academy delivers positive reinforcement-based obedience training with confidence building, environmental exposure and socialization.

Each session covers 2-3 behaviors, confidence building and Q&A.

Normally, the puppy classes are offered once a week on Saturdays on a drop-in basis, but now they’re booking 2-4 weeks out on private classes.

Group lessons will return once Spokane County enters Phase 3.

They encourage pet owners to check their Facebook page, Instagram page or website for updates on the return of those classes.

Puppy classes aren’t the only obedience training courses Valor K-9 is offering right now.

If you’re interested in a private in-person class, a virtual one on Zoom or want to inquire about another service or training, email or to reach a trainer directly.
