This is a fun, low-key class designed to help your puppy build positive associations (and build their confidence) around new people, children, dogs, and environments during their prime period of development. We will also teach you how to most effectively communicate with your dog and how to use positive reinforcement to capture behaviors such as "sit" and "stay". Plus, every class will include a fun puppy playtime to help your pup learn social skills from other puppies!
We know how wonderful and exhausting life with a puppy can be, so we hope you will let us help you get your new life with a pup off to the very best start possible!
Did you know??
A large portion of your puppy's adult personality is formed during an important socialization window between the ages of 8-12 weeks old. It is during this time that your pup learns which things are part of normal life and which things are abnormal and worth being nervous or very excited about. Once this window closes- it doesn't open again!! This makes that first month or two with your pup one of the most important times to invest the time and money into your dog's training.
