Socialization is the process of positively introducing your puppy to Places, People, Animals, Sounds, Objects and Obstacles.

The most important socialization period of your puppies life is the first 3 months, so let us help you and your puppy get the best start possible.  Build your puppies Foundation Skills for life using Positive Reinforcement, Rewards Praise and Play!! 

During this class your puppy will interact in a safe and controlled way with dogs of varying sizes and breeds as well as…

  • Interact with and be handled by various people including men, women and children
  • Experience novel sounds using ‘Sound Socialization’
  • Puppies get to ‘Explore’ many different items at their own pace
  • Experience different surfaces and varying objects in a positive way
  • Puppies learn :  Settle on a Mat / Targeting / Leash Manners / Come when called / Develop a soft mouth (bite inhibition)  Reliability off leash / Focus on Owner/ Sit & Down + Stay

Expose your puppy in a positive way to everything you want them to accept with confidence as an adult dog.

We will provide you with all the right tools and knowledge to raise a well – mannered happy dog you can take anywhere!

Initial Vaccinations required prior to class. Bordetella (Kennel Cough) is also required.   Kennel cough is so highly contagious and these are our youngest, most vulnerable.

Puppy Primer and Play is in it’s own designated area to ensure the entire training area has been sanitized for our youngest puppies prior to class.
