During the first few months of a puppy’s life, they learn to accept and enjoy the company of other dogs and people. They need to be exposed to all kinds of stimuli inside and outside of your home. They have a willingness to please and are easily taught basic behaviors. Continue training and socialization through the challenging adolescent puppy stage, and you will emerge with a well-adjusted, social, addition to your family when your dog reaches maturity.
Because puppyhood is the most crucial developmental stage in a dog’s life, puppies can join class ten days after your puppy’s first round of vaccinations! There is no official start date for puppy class. You start when your puppy is ready. Attend puppy kindergarten until your puppy turns 17 weeks old. Don’t miss the opportunity to train and socialize during this very important time of your dog’s life.
The first week of class is an orientation (without dogs) followed by 6 weeks of group classes.
