Description: It’s never too early to start positive puppy training!  Early socialization for puppies can begin as early as 7-8 weeks of age at home and later in more public places like puppy classes. Class #1 will be a basic orientation and a chance to get to know one another.  It will focus on a class overview, what you will need for the class, class protocol for you and your dog, clicker mechanics and a slide show on “How Dogs Learn 101”.  This class is without your dog.  This class is mandatory.

Puppy Time will focus on basic skills, like sit, down, wait and attention and focus along with how to set your puppy up for success. We will work on handling skills and socialization skills which will help your dog become confident to sights, sounds, and different environments.
