Puppy Kindergarten Training Classes

Continue puppy’s education. Working in new environments with a calm and confident attitude will avoid separation anxiety! Continue training your puppy to be a well-mannered member of your household, focusing on things like impulse control, cuddles, allowing an exam, boundary training, potty training, chewing, nipping, digging, jumping up, and barking. Continued socialization with other puppies of the same age and with new puppy owners.

Prerequisites & Eligibility

  • Puppies 12 - 18 weeks
  • Your puppy must be vaccinated with at least one DHPP, followed by Bordetella, Flu and Rabies as age appropriate. We recommend pets receive these vaccines at least 2 weeks prior for full immunity, when possible.

Frequency & Class Size

Lessons are one hour per week for 4 weeks. Please bring your puppy to the first lesson. You will enjoy small class sizes, for individual attention.
