We are now offering small in-person classes starting June 13th!

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... but what about Social Distancing and COVID-19?  The good news, you can socialize your puppy well without having anyone actually interact with your dog!      

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.

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