Vom Airmont German Shepherds offers puppy training, basic obedience, and tracking.

Training is the easiest way to build a bond with your puppy, and at vom Airmont, we train you to train your puppy.

Our four-week basic obedience course teaches the basics of sit, down, come, and focus work, while also offering the advantages of socialization and new and interesting experiences for your puppy. We use all positive reinforcement methods to train, and utilize the natural play, prey, and food drive that each puppy naturally has in order to teach new exercises in a fun and inclusive environment. All breeds welcome.

We also teach a four-week Schutzhund-based tracking course that teaches you and your puppy the basics of ground scent tracking and article identification. Tracking is a cerebral, problem solving exercise that works your puppy's brain as much as it works his body and nose.
