ABOUT PUPPY CLASSES

small in-person classes! Including Puppy Socials (one-on-one puppy play). 

Ages 14 weeks and under


Taking puppy socialization classes is like “vaccinating” against serious behavior problems.  The primary focus of this class is socialization.  In addition, our experts will be there to answer your puppy-related questions and guide you through this important phase of puppy development.


We have rolling admissions so you can start as soon as your puppy has been examined by a veterinarian and has at least one distemper-parvo vaccine.  Puppies must be up to date on all vaccinations based on their age when starting class and throughout the course.  Puppies can start class up until 14 weeks of age. All puppies older than 14 weeks of age at start date - please sign up for Foundations.

Experts agree puppy socialization is THE most important thing you can do for your new puppy to give them the best start in life!
