Get things off to a great start with our Puppy Kindergarten Class. This class is for puppies between eight and fifteen weeks of age at the beginning of the session.
The Goals of Puppy Kindergarten are:
- to Introduce your puppy to new environments, novel objects and environmental stimuli in a safe environment to reduce the possibility of your pup developing fear-based behaviours
- to get your puppy comfortable with interacting with other dogs, and to help you learn to read canine body language so you can identify safe and unsafe dog-to-dog interaction
- to introduce your puppy to and be handled by unfamiliar people, to prepare them for everything from children rushing to see them and visits to the vet.
- to teach you how to get and maintain your dog’s attention, so that you can clearly communicate your expectations to the dog; this gives the dog the best opportunity to succeed at learning desired behavior.
