Adolescent & Adult Classes

Please read our group class policies here before registering.


Loving Paws will be going through some changes the end of June.   This is bitter sweet for me since I started Loving Paws in 1998 and now I'm handing the adolescent & adult training classes off to Melissa and Jennifer.

Melissa and Jennifer will be starting their own dog training businesses in which Loving Paws will be referring people to.  Their websites will be listed here.

I will still be instructing K9 Nose Work classes.

I want to send each and every person that attended a class at Loving Paws my deepest gratitude for choosing us.  It has been an honor to work with all of you.

Welcome to our Adolescent & Adult Classes!

Communication and socialization are the key to a successful relationship with your dog. This class will help you build a strong foundation of skills and show you how to communicate and understand your dog’s behavior. We will show you how socialization is done properly for your dog to be able to enjoy being with people, dogs and different environments. 

Classes meet at 4709 Green Bay Rd, Kenosha WI. During the summer the Friday and Saturday classes may meet outside at Petrifying Springs Park.

Adolescence begins at the age of 6 months old. Dogs usually reach their height by one year of age, they fill out (girth) between one and two years old and turn adults mentally around or after two years old. This class is for dogs six months of age and older. Smaller dogs over the six months old are still invited to attend a puppy class if that suits that dog better.

Foundation Skills

Adolescent Adult 1 – The FoundationThis class is a level I class for dogs six month old and up. Small dogs, under 20 pounds, are still welcome to attend a puppy class if you want.

Any Age 1 – The Foundation

This class combines the puppies and older dogs into the same class. This will give people the chance to register for a class that fits better into their schedule.
