Puppy Kindergarten I focuses on relationship building and confidence building. Your puppy will learn that the world is a safe and happy place.

Basic exercises introduced in Puppy Kindergarten I include vet visits and grooming, socialization activities, alone-time training, and Puppy Manners 1. You will learn how to prepare your puppy to enjoy vet check-ups and love being groomed. You will also learn how to help your puppy love alone time. Your puppy will also gain confidence thanks to safe, positive interactions with strangers, novel items, other puppies, textures and strange sounds. Our Puppy Kindergarten I program includes plenty of off-leash playtimes, which is so beneficial for developing social skills and bite inhibition. Puppy basic obedience taught in this class will provide the foundation for good manners such as sit, attention towards the handler, polite leash walking, and more! Chewing, nipping, deciphering and interpreting body language, and how to properly reinforce good behaviours and deal with unwanted behaviours are a few of the topics you’ll learn in Puppy Kindergarten I.
