Got a New Puppy?
Puppy training begins the moment you bring your new puppy home. The first 16 weeks of a puppy's life is the most critical. It is in this period that most puppies can develop up to 90% of their attitudes toward people, other animals and their environment.
Get your pup started right! Every year more than 5 million pets are euthanized in this country, mostly by shelters who cannot place all the unwanted pets. Most dogs brought to a shelter are there because they got off to a bad start. Our pup preschool program was established to help reduce this statistic and assist you in raising a well mannered family pet.
Puppy preschool is designed to teach owners to better understand their puppy's needs, establish effective communication, curb behavior problems and show owners how to properly socialize their new puppy.
This course is for puppies 7-16 weeks old. (If your puppy is older than 16 weeks, but is very shy please call he may benefit greatly from attending preschool) Please note while we accept any breed or mixed breed of dog for puppy preschool, all puppies must be healthy and have proof of all required vaccinations.
Monthly Puppy Preschool
We hold a Puppy Preschool session each month. The cost is just $25 per puppy. This class lasts approximately an hour but can run a little longer with the addition of puppy playtime.
Through the guidance of our trainer and the participation of other puppy owners, you will learn a great deal about socialization, confidence building, proper handling, basic problem solving, and other owner educational topics.
At puppy preschool you will also learn confidence building techniques to help your puppy attain positive experiences. Our confidence building exercises will help to further establish the critical communication and trust that is necessary for a well mannered family pet. You will be taught proper introduction techniques for items such as vacuum cleaners, wheel chairs, stairs, noise making items and more.
Owners are taught the importance of early socialization to aid in Puppy's development in forming opinions about people and dogs.
Owner Educational Topics
Each visit there will be new topics covered that will help you better understand your puppy. Also at this time the trainer will answer any questions that you may have concerning your puppy.
Come once, twice or more. Come for the information, the socialization or just for the fun of watching puppies play.
