PUPPY KINDERGARTEN  PUPPIES 8 WEEKS - 4 MONTHS

Starting Tuesday - March 17th at 815PM - Class is full

Starting Tuesday - April 21st at 7PM

This class is designed to help you get off on the right foot and establish a positive relationship with your puppy.  There is a huge focus on learning dog behavior and play styles during play time. This is where your dog learns how to make friends!   In addition to learning social skills, puppies and owners learn all about housebreaking, name recognition, and proper crate training.  We will introduce obedience commands such as sit, stay, come, and loose leash walking.  We also touch on how to prevent or address many problem behaviors.  Your dog’s brain is still very pliable at this age, and they are learning all the time!  Help them learn with a structured puppy kindergarten class!  Space is limited to allow for individualized attention as needed. This is the most important class you can take with your dog- EVER!!!  These are the months where your puppy forms opinions about the world.  Most animal behaviorists and trainers agree the “socializing window” starts to close between 4 and 6 months of age. Your dog may never be comfortable in the presence of other dogs, people, new objects and new places if not properly exposed by 8 months of age. Now is the time to lay a solid foundation!
