Puppy Kindergarten II focuses on preparing your puppy for puppy adolescence while building a positive bond between you and your puppy.

Exercises introduced in Puppy Kindergarten II include impulse control, polite social skills, preventing common behavioural problems, and Puppy Manners 2. Your puppy will develop skills to help prepare him or her for adolescence such as learning to share prized possessions, coping with scary situations and mastering the art of good social skills with dogs and people. Adolescence can be a challenging time as puppies become more independent and behavioural quirks start to emerge. Therefore, you want to set your puppy up for success so that he or she will thrive during adolescence! Our Puppy Kindergarten II program includes off-leash playtime, during which the focus is positive socialization. Puppy basic obedience taught in this class will include mastering good manner skills in a higher level of distraction. Resource guarding, “selective hearing”, dog park safety and success, and fear periods are a few of the topics you’ll learn in Puppy Kindergarten II.

*Puppy Kindergarten classes fill up quickly, so we recommend booking a spot in advance. Puppy Kindergarten II is based on rolling admission, which means a spot becomes available as soon as a puppy graduates. We have new graduates each week.

If the start date works for you, please create a client account, and then send us an email for registration. Thank you.*
