Class Description

Class is for puppies starting age 9 – 20 weeks old and will teach you how to prevent many of the common behavioral problems seen in dogs, including Play Biting, Socialization with People and Dogs, Housetraining, Chewing, Home Alone, Acceptance of grooming, and Preventing Food Bowl and Object Guarding. Your puppy will also learn basic good manners, such as, attention, sit, down, come, place, and beginning leash manners.

At this age, puppies are still developing their canine social skills and learning how to interact appropriately with other dogs. Vital skills your pup will learn include:

  • Polite dog-to-dog greeting behavior;
  • Being gentle with their teeth during play;
  • Reading social cues to determine whether another puppy wants to play or be left alone.

It is important for these interactions to be with puppies their age as well as puppies or dogs from outside the family. The same result is not achieved with a doggy sibling. Without these skills, many pups grow up to be adults who have difficulty communicating with other dogs which unfortunately can put them at high risk for anxiety or aggression in social situations. This class will set your puppy up for socialization success!
