7:15 PM-8:15 PM Ideal Puppy Training & Socialization (Begins Aug 3, 2017) - Indoor Training Room

Ideal Puppy Training & Socialization is your puppy's first class, almost like Kindergarten. Your puppy must be between 8 and 18 weeks at the start of class.

Why should all puppies go to school? By five months of age much of your puppy's personality has been determined, so it is very important to begin a class prior to this age. Early puppyhood is a critical time for socialization and learning. This time will set the stage for the rest of your puppy's life. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime chance to show your puppy how to confidently relate to other puppies, unfamiliar people, and strange sights, sounds, and events. It is crucial that this developmental stage is used wisely!

We will work on critical skills such as socialization and bite inhibition (developing a soft mouth), as well as issues such as housebreaking, and chewing. Your pup will learn to control biting by playing with dogs his age. It's important that your puppy learns to be comfortable in strange settings and situations and to adapt to the world around him and feel at ease with other dogs and people.

Puppy play to teach important dog-dog socialization skills, is an important aspect of this class. We will also cover basic manners and preventing bad habits and behavior problems. We will introduce basic obedience such as sit, down, come, don't touch and follow. We will also discuss important things like grooming, house training, and socialization. We will show you good games to play with your puppy that are both fun and teach your puppy self control.
