Courses and Schedules

COURSE NAME: Puppy Pre-school

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
PREREQUISITE: Puppies must be between the age of 10 and 15 weeks (Toy Breeds up to 18 weeks) as of the class start date.

Puppy Preschool class is a great way to build confidence (for you and your pup) while learning the basics. Adding lots of structured social interaction with other young puppies under 4 months of age is very beneficial according to the Veterinary Association’s, Start Puppy Class Early article which you will find on our Links page. There is a small window of opportunity, while your pup is very young, to do a lot of problem avoidance and reduce the chances of bad habits being formed.

Puppy Preschool covers leash walking, come, sit, down, stand, leave it, handling and basic grooming, all geared towards young pups. An e-booklet and certificate of completion are included.


COURSE FEE:  148.00 (+ taxes)

COURSE LENGTH:  4 weeks

COURSE NOTES:  Puppies must be 10 – 15 weeks; Toy Breeds up to 18 weeks as of the class start date. Puppies should be up-to-date with their vaccinations.
