Our Puppy Foundations class is designed for puppies 10 to 20 weeks of age. During this time it is critical for our puppies to have positive experiences with other dogs, people, new places, sights, sounds & so much more! The experiences they have during this age will set the foundations for the rest of their lives.
This class teaches you how to properly socialize your puppy to help them become a confident, well-behaved adult dog. Each week we combine teaching focus & basic skills with education and enrichment. Your puppy also gets off leash play so they can learn how to communicate with other dogs.
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!
