Puppy Fundamentals (for puppies under 20 weeks) - 4 week class, $120 


The critical socialization period for puppies is before 20 weeks of age. Puppies develop and solidify their impression of the world during this time. What they experience in this period determines how adaptable, calm and confident they’ll be as adults. This class will help you to socialize your puppy to people, dogs, sights and sounds in a safe and positive environment. These classes are designed to teach you how to encourage appropriate behaviour and set boundaries. Learn the most important skills a dog needs, such as bite inhibition, recall, house training, appropriate dog-dog skills and more. Start building a strong relationship with your puppy based on mutual trust, understanding, respect and of course, love!

These classes will allow ample opportunity for puppy playtime in a supervised and safe environment. 

We do encourage you to join these classes as soon as possible because  early socialization has been proven to have lifelong benefits.
