4 Week Class:  


Puppy Kindergarten: The importance of beginning puppy training and socialization early is one of the most commonly accepted concepts in the dog training community.  Young puppies are like little sponges and their early experiences will stick with them for their entire lives.  It is critical that we make those experiences positive.  Much of the time in this class will focus on learning how to provide your puppy with positive socialization and handling experiences.  Off leash play with other puppies will comprise part of the class.   Puppy play is an important part of puppy socialization and during play sessions we will discuss appropriate and inappropriate behaviors, as well as when to interrupt inappropriate play.  In addition Puppy Kindergarten will cover some basic foundation behaviors like come when called, sit, and name recognition, and address housetraining and puppy mouthing.
Prerequisite:  Puppies should be between the ages of 10 and 16 weeks when class starts and should be current on their core vaccines.
