For anyone with a new puppy at home, or those thinking of getting one, our Puppy Kindergarten program is essential. Puppy K is for puppies 4 months and under. Puppies need to have had two (2) sets of vaccination boosters by the class start date. Pups must have at least 2 sets of DHLPP-C and Bordatella.
The lessons the pups will learn during this critical socialization period will affect them for the rest of their life. It is imperative to begin socializing at this early age – in other words, teach puppies to learn how welcome and be comfortable with an assortment of people, places, sights, surfaces, dogs, other animals, and sounds.
Early and proper socialization will help the pups to learn how to handle stress and new situations with ease as an adult. The lessons the humans will learn are just as important. You will learn all aspects of canine development, preventing and solving undesired behavior, get a running start on obedience training, learn to housetrain successfully, and learn about relationship bonding exercises to show your dog that you are his/her kind and benevolent leader.
We will also discuss health and nutrition. You as dog owners can utilize this early experience to create a confident, comfortable and loving member of their household and community.
Lessons introduced in Puppy K may include, but are not limited to:
Playbiting/Nipping * Chewing inappropriate items * House-training * Touch Conditioning * Name recognition * Accepting his/her collar and leash * Sit – stay – come * Proper socialization.
The first class is orientation and HUMANS ONLY!- please bring copy of vaccination records to first class.
