Puppy Manners and Socialization Course
This group class is a 6-week course for puppies that are ages 8 weeks through 6 months. Our dog trainers will focus on enhancing socialization skills with other puppies, as well as humans. This time period is the most critical period in a dog’s life as they learn to develop self-confidence, socialization skills, bite inhibition, and proper manners. Topics covered in puppy class will include, but are not limited to, loose leash walking, sit/stay, down/stay, and reliable “come” recall. Household manners are also part of the curriculum, focusing on puppy mouthing and nipping, crate training, and housebreaking. We also teach the “off” command for unwanted jumping, “leave it” commands, and more! Of course, there will also be plenty of off leash play time for puppies to interact and build their socialization skills. For puppy classes, a 6-foot training leash is required; please no retractable leashes. The second sets of Distemper shots are required for your puppy to attend class. Please bring treats that your pet will want to work for to use as food-based rewards.
