Puppy Kindergarten is a relationship building class to get you and your new pup off to a great start. We have designed this class to give puppies an opportunity to learn basic skills that will develop them into happy, confident companions. We will be focusing on:
- Reinforcing calm behavior
- Solutions to challenging puppy behaviors
- Building a common language to help build your relationship with your puppy.
Additionally, you will learn to use enrichment items to help your pup use their brain, and games that are fun and will help keep your dog engaged with you out in the big world.
Puppies will also learn how to interact appropriately with other dogs during play time, which offers a gentle, friendly, active environment in which puppies and their companions can have fun learning.
An introduction to basic but important skills such as leave it, come when called and learning to be handled will also be covered.
