Puppy Pre-School

1. PUPPY PRE-SCHOOL

PicturepupUnleash your puppy potential and set things right early!

First impressions matter! Socialization is of utmost importance and will have tremendous impact on your puppy’s future behavior. It can make all the difference between a shy, scared dog and an outgoing, friendly, and well-adjusted one. This class will equip you with the necessary skills to get your puppy adjusted to the world of humans.

To prepare the puppies to live in our world, we’ve designed a class that allows puppies as early as 8 weeks old, during their most sensitive developmental period, to interact with the outside world. We will expose and socialize them to the little things in life, that you may or may not come across, along with common stimulus that they will encounter.

This class consist of 5 sessions, with heavy emphasis on socialization, grooming, body handling and restraint, a prevention program for fear and aggression and introduction to clicker training.
