Learn how to properly socialize your young pup and help him/her develop into a well-adjusted, happy adult dog. Dogs who have been properly socialized as pups learn to accept changes well, enjoy having new experiences, and are less likely to become fearful or aggressive toward people & other animals. They also learn self control and have a great foundation to be overall great family pets! Take advantage of this early learning period & help your puppy develop into an awesome dog! Pups are exposed to new experiences in a pleasant, non-threatening environment. No punishment or ‘corrections’ are ever used in this class.
At this age, puppies are in their ‘Juvenile Period’ of development, which is similar to our teen years. This is a time of rapid growth, increased activity & excitability, and increased independence. Puppies in the juvenile period need consistent leadership (not to be confused with ‘dominance’), lots of daily exercise, and training with positive reinforcement. This can be a frustrating time for owners, which is a great reason to take your pup to classes! Learn to capture your puppy’s attention and begin the foundation training for a lifetime of canine manners! No punishment or ‘corrections’ are ever used in this class.
