Puppy PlaySchool (Saturday)
$185
Class
6 classes
1 hour
For puppies 6 months old or younger with at LEAST two rounds of distemper/Parvo vaccinations!

This is a 6 week class designed for socialization and positive exposure to new people, dogs, textures, and sounds in a public place. Instruction will include potty training advice, crate/confinement training suggestions, how to curb puppy mouthing/nipping, and some introduction to some basic manners skills such as sit, come, wait, and leash walking.

Where appropriate, we will also introduce some play time between well-matched puppies and discuss what healthy play looks like, how to advocate for our dogs to keep our dogs enjoying play, and when and how to stop play that's getting out of hand.

This class is strictly Fear Free and positive reinforcement based, meaning no choke chains, no prong collars, no E-collars. Please bring your puppy on a comfortable collar or harness and a standard 6 foot leash. NO retractable leashes!

Bring 1-2 cups of pinky nail sized soft treats (you can use a freeze dried dog food like Dr. Marty's to replace pup's breakfast if you'd like)! We use a LOT of food, so while sometimes we use very high value treat food like cheese or a chicken nugget, we can't use that all the time or it will be unhealthy.

This class will meet at Leary Park in Waterford!
