For puppies 8 to 16 weeks old to play, socialize, and begin learning basic skills
These group sessions allow puppies-ages 8 to 16 weeks-to play, socialize, and begin learning basic skills in a supportive, safe environment:
Puppies get to play in these sessions because I believe they are too young at this age for a skills-only class. We do work on rewarding basic behaviors, but we also focus on appropriate play and other key social skills. Dogs exposed to many kinds of dogs and people, in a controlled way, when they are young become more reliable and confident adults.
In addition, it’s a great place for canine families to ask questions and get the support they need as new things crop up as puppies mature. Raising a new puppy, if you’ve never done it before or haven’t done it in a while, is hard work. I can help. Supplies need for this class are, a six foot leash (non retractable), regular flat collar, halter or harness and rewards. I strongly recommend either the Sense-ation Harness or Freedom No-Pull Harness. Look for these at Farfel's Farm, P.C.'s Panrty, Struttin Pup and Whole Pets.
Dog Health Note:
All puppies must be healthy and current on their vaccinations. Bordetella vaccination is suggested but not required. For very young dogs, that means they’ve had at least their first round of shots. No dog park policy-please do not attend puppy class if you are using the dog park, as it might expose other puppies to potentially dangerous germs.
