Classes

Puppy Preschool

  • Beginning for puppies between 8-13 weeks of age.   This is a strongly socially based program, it is during this critical learning window that great social experiences can help shape your dog for a lifetime.   We address common puppy concerns:  Housetraining, play biting, and very fundamental training.  Confidence building and social skills are far more important than formal training at this time. Class meets on Saturdays at 9:00am for an hour.  This is a 5 week session and the cost is $85.00.  Attending more than 5 weeks is also an option for dogs within the age range. Requirements:  Puppies need to be on schedule with vaccines and have a negative fecal exam.  Puppies 14+ weeks can begin in Puppy 101.
