Puppy Kindergarten Online

Congratulations! You have (or are getting) a puppy! Our Puppy Classes are built with you and your puppy in mind and inspired by the latest research on puppy training.

Proper socialization combined with positive reinforcement-based training in the context of a group puppy class helps puppies grow into well-adjusted pets.” – Dr. Brenda Griffin, DVM, MS, Diplomate ACVIM

Online Puppy Kindergarten Classes


Age Requirements: Your puppy must be between 9 and 21 weeks old on their first day of Puppy Kindergarten. 

Course Length: 6 lessons (6 consecutive weeks; 60 minutes each lesson)

Price: $173 + HST for 6 lessons

Max. Class Size: 7 puppies

Your puppy will learn that the world is a safe and happy place, even with the current Pandemic restrictions! Exercises introduced in Puppy Kindergarten include vet visits and grooming, socialization activities, alone-time training, Puppy Manners. 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, textures and strange sounds. 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! 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! Resource guarding, “selective hearing”, dog park safety and success, and fear periods , 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.

What You’ll Need For Class:

  • Plenty of small training treats that your puppy loves
  • A regular 6-foot leash (non-retractable)
  • A dog training food reward pouch, bag, or holder so that you can retrieve your food reward easily
  • A regular collar or harness
