puppy kindergarten

Prerequisites: None    Duration: 8 weeks Age: 8 weeks - 6 months

The most critical developmental period of a dog's life occurs between 8 weeks and 4 months of age. During this window, we have the opportunity to shape the way a puppy thinks about and interacts with the world around them. In this course, you will learn all of the necessary skills to set your puppy up for success for the rest of their life.

In Basic Obedience, we will cover the foundation behaviors necessary for both house pets and working dogs. Each student will master basic cues such as name recognition, come, eye contact on cue, sit, down, stay, leave it, and more. We will also tackle mild behavioral issues such as inattention, leash pulling, and jumping up.
