Socialization is one of the most important aspects of your puppy’s early development. Much of an adult dog’s preferences, fears, and attitudes are developed between the ages of 7 weeks and 16 weeks. Maximizing training and socialization opportunities during this critical development period will help ensure a confident, well socialized adult dog.

Our specialized Puppy Start Right training class emphasizes positive socialization with other puppies, people and environmental stimuli. Your puppy will gain crucial exposure to a wide variety of novel objects, new sounds and veterinary and home-care procedures. This is known as socialization, and it is crucial as as good puppy socialization now can help to prevent serious concerns later.

Your pup will learn the simple but important behaviors that form the foundation of all other learning, including house training, crate training, and puppy nipping and mouthing.  We also introduce basic skills, including sit and coming when called, using clicker training! This class is for puppies 7 weeks to 14 weeks with open enrollment.

This class is taught by our Licensed Vet Tech Stephanie Provo who is certified in the Puppy Start Right Program!
