Class Description:

Our Puppy Preschool class is designed for very young puppies so that they can have many positive experiences while young and grow up to be well adjusted dogs into adulthood.  You will learn how to introduce your puppy to novel stimuli and get him or her off on the right foot for their life with humans.  Puppies will play together while learning how to play nicely and not bite too hard. 

 

Puppies in this age range are in a window of opportunity to introduce them to new experiences.  They are like a sponge at this age, where everything is new and exciting.  As your puppy’s new parents, it is your job to ensure these new experiences are positive and enjoyable for a happy pooch down the road.

 

Each week we have a different theme built around socializing your new puppy to various experiences such as vacuum cleaners, strange people, thunder, and going to the vet.  Each of these experiences will prepare them for common life events that they might find scary.
 

Each week we'll introduce a new experience as well as cover the basics of puppy parenting (such as potty training, and dealing with naughty behavior).  This is a great introduction to Basic Behavior.

Our Basic Behavior class is divided into 4 main parts: socialization, basic commands, discussion, and relaxation/handling.  Throughout the course, your dog will learn how to meet and greet other dogs and humans appropriately and learn all the basic commands to be a well behaved pup.  We cover sit, down, stay, leave it, loose leash walking, and much more.  Each week we will talk about common issues concerning new pooch parents; potty training, dealing with naughty behaviors, reliable recalls, etc.  We also teach you how to give your pooch a mini exam, while relaxing your pup.  This is the first step in any veterinary or grooming experience.
