Level One Class

Puppy Class: Studies show that exposing puppies to a variety of people, places, and things in the early stages of development help puppies develop into confident and well adjusted dogs. The opportunity for good socialization is at its peak between 3 weeks and 4 months of age and continues until the puppy is about 6 months of age. 
 
Lack of good socialization during a puppy's first 6 months of life can seriously increase the possibility of behavioral problems later in life. 

Family Friendly Dog Training
These behavioral problems can include extreme fear & aggression. Behavioral problems in pet dogs decrease the bond a caregiver has with their dog. In fact, behavioral problems are the number one reason why dogs are turned into rescues & shelters. 

Get your new puppy off on the right paw with this informative & fun class! Don't miss out on your puppy's critical development time line, enroll in Puppy Class. Our puppy class has a big focus on socialization skills, handling, paying attention to you, preventing behavioral problems and being a polite member of the family.  Puppy Dog Training Class taught by Tonya 
 
Common Concerns: People are commonly concerned that their puppies are not fully vaccinated prior to the start of puppy classes. However, due to the fact that puppies are in a critical window for their development, the risk of developing a behavioral problem is far greater than the risk of developing disease in a puppy class.
