Our Adolescent Foundation Class is for puppies 20 weeks of age to 9 months of age. As our puppies mature, they go through different developmental periods. Adolescence is by far one of the most difficult times for us and our dogs!
You now have a little 4-legged teenager with teeth on your hands! This is the time when unfortunatley many dogs end up being turned into shelters, due to behavioral challenges that accompany this stage of life. We are here to help you navigate this very difficult time!
Consistency in routine and training is key! Our class will help you learn how to build basic behaviors you like and reduce those behaviors we do not like (ie: Jumping, counter-surfing, pulling on leash, etc.)
This class is a 6-week class that meets one hour each week at the same day & time. A $100.00 non-refundable deposit is required to register for class.
All puppies must have the age appropriate vaccinations in order to attend our classes. Vaccination schedules vary between vets. Here is a fantastic article explaining how vaccinations work with the mother’s immunity and how important that early socialization is!
