CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Puppy Socialization & Kindergarten

     For puppies aged 8-24weeks

     Cost: $10/session or $25 for 3 sessions.

 

Puppy Socialization and Kindergarten is puppy playtime, introduction to novel sights, sounds and smells, interaction with other humans and a good start toward learning appropriate default behavior(s) such as sit and follow. A well-socialized puppy is much more comfortable in her world for her entire life, and as a result far less likely to ever become fearful and/or bite. You can register for one class at a time or get a discount for 3 classes. There will be at least two instructors for each class who will help you teach your puppy VERY basic cues such as sit, down and follow me. You can come as often as you want as along as there is room in the class and your puppy hasn’t reached the maximum age. This class can be taken concurrently with Puppy 1 or by itself. You must attend at least 5 sessions of Puppy Socialization and Kindergarten or complete Puppy 1 to be eligible for Puppy 2.

Schedules & Locations:

  • Classes are 1 hour long.
  • See the Register For Classes page
