 Puppy Classes

Thank you for checking out our classes. It is a wise person that knows the sooner you enroll your puppy in classes the greater the benefits will be. The critical period for puppies to learn about their environment and interacting with people, other dogs and pets is from 4 to 12 weeks of age. After this period, the benefits ofassociations begin to lessen, however, it is still very important and necessary to continue the socialization throughout your dog’s life.

Puppy classes allow your puppy to learn and socialize in a safe and friendly way. Expert staff will supervise training and play sessions so your puppy will have a very positive experience, any bullying or over aggressive play will be quickly stopped, the puppies will be separated and redirected to avoid any negative experiences.

A quick word on why early socializationis so important. The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviourrecommends that puppies attend well-run puppy socialization classes prior to receiving all vaccinations. Please check out their statement and another article from the

Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association Very interesting reading.

Our scientifically based friendly training methodswill create a positive bond between you and your dog; your pet will listen to you and work hard to please you.
