Puppy Kindergarten

START ANY TIME PUPPY CLASSES – don’t wait for your puppy to get older: you can register and get started right away!

Our Puppy Kindergarten classes focus on socialization as well as giving you strategies and tips for teaching your puppy basic manners and simple obedience cues.  We also discuss puppy-specific topics like housebreaking, chewing, crate training and more.

Each class allows for off-leash playtime so that the puppies may develop their social skills and bite inhibition with one another. We also include socialization to people and facilitate this by having handlers trade puppies briefly throughout the course. We introduce new objects and situations to the puppies, such as agility tunnels or being picked up and handled on a table, simulating a veterinary exam.  Simply pick what weekday you’d like to attend and sign up for 6 weeks of puppy fun!
