Puppy Kindergarten

COURSE OVERVIEW

Puppy Kindergarten is a 6-week series class designed to build on their puppy skills, shaping them into better canine citizens. Basic obedience skills such as sit, stay, come, place and heel will be discovered by your new family member. We will play fun games to educate you on crating and enrichment activities to keep their young mind engaged. Throughout the class We will be building communication and socialization skills to cultivate a stronger relationship. 

This class teaches the foundations of obedience training, which makes it a great class for owners of young dogs, ages 20 weeks to 1 year.

This course is recommended for young dogs getting settled into a new home.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Please be sure each week to bring poop bags, soft training treats, a harness or collar they are comfortable with and, most importantly, your patience.

If your dog barks, growls, or is aggressive to people or dos, your dog is not yet eligible for Puppy Kindergarten group class.
