Prerequisite: Puppies must have 2 sets of vaccinations by the start date of class.
During your puppy’s first 16 weeks of life, known as the
“socialization window,” he’s learning constantly. Just as with children,
his early experiences form the foundation of his future behavior. Why
is this important? If you want your puppy to grow up into a polite, well-adjusted dog,
you need to teach your puppy impulse control in all areas of his/her
life. Waiting to go outside is a huge safety issues, waiting to be fed,
to be leashed, not picking up dropped food and many other areas of
control. Our puppy classes focus on setting you and your puppy up for a
life time of success.
Our Puppy Kindergarten helps you do all this
and more! We give you the lowdown on puppy training, equipment,
routines, what brain toys are and how to use them, and provide
supervised playtime with other vaccinated puppies.
Please note that the first class of every Puppy K series is an orientation for people only.
K includes: House-training support, alone-training, barking, jumping,
chewing, biting, and body handling to get your puppy comfortable about
visiting the vet and groomer. Basic puppy manners: Sit, down, come,
impulse control - for us the hallmark of good dog behavior, and walking
nicely on a leash.
