Puppy Head Start Class is designed specifically for puppies between the ages of 8 to 20 weeks and is open to all who will be within this age range on the first day of class. This course covers common puppy issues such as house training, puppy biting, general puppy mischief and early socialization, etc. and introduces basic obedience skills.

Because of the minimum age of the dogs in our Beginner Obedience Classes (4 months), this course skips straight to basic obedience skills, expecting a level of focus and attention not possible with very young puppies. Play groups with appropriate other puppies are included in our Puppy Head Start Classes; in Beginner Obedience Classes the emphasis is on teaching dogs to pay attention to their handlers instead.
