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 5pm or  6:15pm-7:15 pm, Wednesday night 6:15-7:15pm or Saturdays 10 am - 11 am or a seasonal Saturday 11:30 am class.
