Perfect for first time puppy owners. This three-week class gives you the tools to help your puppy get a positive start. Puppy Fundamentals is for puppies 8-20 weeks old who have had at least one round of “puppy shots” and are up-to-date with vaccinations (vaccination records are required to participate). This class addresses the topics most critical to having a happy, well-adjusted dog for life:
- “Puppy survival topics,” including biting and chewing, socialization to city life, and housetraining
- Introduction to positive training, to teach your puppy how to be polite
- Gentle exposure to new stimuli, such as a vacuum cleaner, to prevent your puppy from becoming fearful
- Breaks for off-leash play.
Please note: for safety purposes, children under the age of 10 will not be allowed on the training floor.
Your puppy already knows how to play, but does he know how to play politely without getting overexcited? Puppy Social gives your little one opportunities to practice appropriate play with other puppies in a safe, professionally supervised environment, plus short periods of downtime so they learn to calm themselves. Puppy Social is also appropriate for shy puppies that need short exposures to play with breaks in the social pressure. For puppies under 6 months old and under 30 lbs. Registration is required. Limited to 6 puppies. Please bring your puppy’s favorite chew and lots of tiny treats.
Teach your dog the skills he needs to be a well-mannered family member. You will learn how to communicate with your dog in order to teach him Sit, Down, Come, Stay, Leash Walking & more.
