For pups 10 weeks to 18 weeks old
Limited to 8 to 12 puppies • Runs 1 hour each week for 8 weeks

Help your puppy develop into a happy, confident dog by taking advantage of this impressionable period in your dogs life when they are most easily trained. This class focuses on proper socialization and bite inhibition, the two most important facets of your puppys development. In addition, we lay the foundation for more serious training in the future, by introducing the requests: sit, down, wait (for their food bowl), come, settle, give, and “go find it”, as well as solutions for jumping, leash pulling, and house soiling. This class also includes brief, carefully supervised socialization “playtimes” and training games, as well as early grooming tips and health basics.
