When choosing an obedience class for your new Golden Retriever puppy, there are a few things you should consider:

  1. Look for a class that uses positive reinforcement training methods. These methods are based on rewarding good behavior, rather than punishing bad behavior, which is more effective and less stressful for your puppy.
  2. Choose a class that is specifically designed for puppies. Puppies have shorter attention spans and are more easily distracted than adult dogs, so they need a different type of training.
  3. Look for a class that is taught by a certified professional trainer. The trainer should have experience working with puppies and be able to answer any questions you may have.
  4. Consider the class size. A smaller class size will allow for more one-on-one time with the trainer and may be more beneficial for your puppy.
  5. Find out what the class covers. A good obedience class should cover basic commands such as sit, stay, and come, as well as proper socialization with people and other dogs.
  6. Check the location of the class. You'll want to choose a class that is convenient for you to attend.
  7. Finally, don't be afraid to ask for references or to observe a class before signing up. This will give you a good idea of what to expect and whether the class is a good fit for you and your puppy.
