What Do We Offer?
Puppy School: - Why?
From the age of 3 - 16 weeks a pup's brain is like a computer hard drive; they learn quickly and what they learn during this time is retained and shapes their future behavior. You and your puppy will learn about canine social skills, play biting, house training, distractions and sounds, visits to the vet, leadership skills, confidence building, aggression and lots more.
You as the owner/ handler will learn how to address the various problems that you may encounter when raising a new puppy. Puppy school teaches the pup what he/ she needs in order to grow up into a solid, trustworthy, obedient companion.
How old must the puppy be?
Your puppy may only begin puppy school once he/ she has had the 2nd set of vaccinations. Normally the puppy would be around 10 - 12 weeks old. Frankly - the sooner the better as long as the 2nd set of vaccinations have been done. We do this to ensure the safety of your puppy, and we check the vaccination records of the older dogs in the school too. Please feel free to verify this with your veterinarian. No puppies may begin puppy school without presentation of proof of vaccination.
How long is the course?
Puppy 1 is a 4-week course.
Puppy 2 is also a 4-week course
and immediately follows the Puppy 1 course. In Puppy 2 you will have fun taking
your puppy to the next level of training.
