4 week session

for puppies 8 weeks to 14 weeks (when starting class)

This class focuses specifically on things that will help you when you bring home your new puppy. Early education and socialization can bring out the best in your puppy and can make an impact on the dog they grow up to be. Much of the class time will be spent learning appropriate dog to dog play skills which will help them learn to read other dog’s body language. You will learn to identify healthy play versus play that needs intervention. Common puppy issues will be discussed including house training, puppy mouthing, crate training and jumping up. You will practice various handling preparations to get your puppy comfortable with the positions required for grooming and veterinary visits. Prevention and management techniques for common issues such as separation anxiety or destructive behaviours will be discussed. You will also learn many relationship building games to play with your puppy.

Level 1

There are two classes in this level according to age:

Ongoing socialization to positive experiences will continue in this class.
