Puppies are at a very sensitive stage between 3 weeks-16 weeks of age.  So it is important to focus on controlled positive exposure to different environments, people, sounds, textures and more. We are here to help you focus on positive socialization and foundation training during this time of social distancing. 

Early puppyhood is a critical time for socialization and learning. Puppy class is the single most important thing you can do to help your puppy reach his/her full potential! This is a fun and interactive class where you and your pup will enjoy puppy social time, learn new training topics, explore new objects and obstacles, get information on how to be a proactive puppy parent, and learn problem solving skills.

Class topics: socialization, exploration, crate training, house training, stop jumping up, walking nicely on leash, play biting, sit, come when called, leave-it, feeling comfortable at Veterinary visits and much more!

Class times are: Tuesday nights  6:15pm-7:15 pm, Wednesday night 6:15-7:15pm or Saturdays 10 am - 11 am or a seasonal Saturday 4pm class. 

**There is a human only (no dogs)orientation process that needs to be set up before your pup can join the group class. Orientations are Tuesday at 4:45pm or there is an on-line option.**

Please consider your schedule carefully as no refunds will be given after the start of your class. Most classes are  "Open Enrollment". You and your pup can start class when there is a class vacancy. We limit class spots to 6-7 pups. Once the class is full the software will open up the next open class spot/date. The first step after registration is to set up the human only orientation session. Then you and your pup can start your 5 group class sessions. Orientation  is scheduled outside of regular group class time and should be attended/completed 4-7 days prior to joining group class. After orientation there are 5 "puppy & people" classes. There is also an on-line pre recorded orientation option if your schedule does not allow for the Tuesday 4:45pm #1 of 6 option. If on-line pre-recorded orientation is chosen the class fee is $118 .
