Did you recently add a new puppy to your family? Get a pup-start in building a positive relationship and developing the framework for success in their adult life by enrolling in this six week (first week is owners only, no dogs) class. Puppies must be between the ages of 8 to 20 weeks old and have at least had their Rabies and Bordetella by the start date in order to enroll. We will cover a variety of topics essential to raising a happy puppy and a happy you. The foundation of the commands for sit, down, place and come will be introduced as well as the concept of loose leash walking. We will also discuss the common puppy raising subjects of house training, crate training, proper socialization around people and other dogs and appropriate handling as well as learn how to curve naughty behaviors like mouthing, jumping and barking. Puppies who graduate from this class have the opportunity to test and earn their S.T.A.R Puppy from the American Kennel Club.
