Puppy 101 - "Play N Learn"

Start ‘em young” Research has shown that the early weeks of a puppy’s life are crucial to social development, both with other dogs and with people. Every day that goes by without socializing and training your young pup is a day lost to his or her social future. This 45-minute class is especially for puppies who are 8-20 weeks old, who will get to socialize and spend time learning with each other. In addition to socialization, you will have a great opportunity to participate in a Q +A session where our certified trainers will address “Name Recognition and Mouthing” as well as any other topics brought up. This socialization class will have you and your puppy well on your way to growing up to be a well-adjusted dog and to enjoying a happy life together.

Your puppy should have been seen by a vet and be deemed healthy before you bring him/her to class. Puppies in class may not have received all their vaccinations. If you are concerned about this, speak to your vet before enrolling, and read the recommendation from the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior.
