Puppy Kindergarten is the best option for our baby puppies starting at 8-14 weeks!
Class will include socialization, with meeting new people and puppy play time. They'll also be introduced to new textures, objects, and other "novel" stuff, learning to be confident pups.
We'll also learn some fundamental manners skills, like Name, Sit, Down, Place, and Touch. And we'll talk about solving common puppy problems!
-How to get your puppy to stop biting
-How to potty train effectively
-How to get puppies to listen, even with distractions!
-How to prevent future problems like resource guarding
-How to build calm behavior when greeting new people
Puppy Kindergarten guidelines:
-Puppies should be 8-14 weeks at the start of puppy class -Puppies must be 7 days past their first set of vaccinations. You do not have to wait until your puppy’s vaccinations are complete. For more about this, please read the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior’s position statement on puppy socialization.
-Puppies must be healthy/noncontagious to attend class
-Class is on a rolling basis (you can start any week), and goes for 6 weeks. You can miss and make up a class if needed.
If your puppy is older than 14 weeks, check out our Puppy First Grade class! First Grade is for all puppies roughly 4-6 months. All of our classes are taught by skilled trainers using positive reinforcement methods.
