GROUP CLASS DESCRIPTIONS, REQUIREMENTS, & RECOMMENDATIONS

Puppy Level 1

Puppy socialization is the single most integral step in raising a happy and mentally sound puppy. Lack of proper socialization during a puppy’s critical periods of development (8-16 weeks) can be very detrimental. It’s important to proactively build their confidence and set the stage for a lifetime of good behavior in a fun and safe environment. In this class, your puppy will have the opportunity to interact with other people and dogs to ensure that they will be properly socialized at this critical age in their developmental period. Playtime and socialization will be an integral part of this puppy program. We will also go over Potty Training, jumping, nipping, and some basic obedience. This class will also set you and your dog up for Puppy Level 2 and the Basic Manners Classes.
