It’s open to all puppies who will be between 8 to 20 weeks of age on the first day of class. You’ll learn how to address common puppy issues such as housetraining, mouthing, jumping, the important role of early socialization, benevolent leadership and much, much more! In our in-person classes, your puppy will be exposed to lots of new things and play with other puppies appropriate to his size and age if available in your group. In the Virtual Class version you’ll learn how to safely provide these socialization experiences for your little one yourself. Learn how fun dog training can be and let us help you get your pup started off on the right paw!
