The best time to train a puppy is now. Don’t wait. Our puppy training program let’s you start right away. Simply choose the class day and time you prefer, and then get training!
This is the age when puppies are most responsive to new experiences, and soak up learning like furry little sponges. It’s the perfect time to begin class!
In puppy classes we focus on socialization through play and exposure to new people and novel experiences, prevention of problem behaviors like mouthing, potty training, chewing and jumping. We also introduce the basic manner skills sit, down, come, wait, drop, and leash walking.
