KinderPuppy 1 for Older Puppies
Thursdays @ 7:15pm. Class starts November 8th. No class on 11/22/2012. $175 for 6 weeks.
Just like our Kinderpuppy 1 class, this is a 6-week beginning obedience and socialization course, designed especially for puppies between 5 and 10 months. Proper socialization is the most vital component of your puppy’s healthy development into a friendly, well-adjusted adult dog. Adequate socialization to other puppies during their developmental period teaches puppies how to communicate properly with other dogs, develop bite inhibition, and helps prevent future dog-aggression. In addition to socialization, this class also covers basic obedience training (sit, down, stay, come, leave it, and settle on mat) as well as problem prevention (biting, barking, chewing) using positive reinforcement. We will also cover puppy basics such as house-training, crating, and proper socialization. Each class may include several supervised play sessions. No puppies at first meeting. Puppies must have current DHPP vaccinations.
