Courses and Schedules

COURSE NAME: Puppy Pre-school

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Our Puppy Preschool class is a great way to build confidence (for you and your pup!) while learning your basics. It includes basic grooming and games night along with the other lessons.

It is suggested that you add as much structured social interaction with other young puppies under the 4 month age as possible. There is a small window of opportunity while your pup is very young to do a lot of problem avoidance and to avoid forming bad habits.

A lesson workbook and certificate of completion are included. Puppies should have current vaccinations.

We will cover Leash work – Come – Sit – Down – Stand – Off – Handling – Minor Grooming all geared towards young pups.

This may look similar to Family Dog, but we will be raising the bar in the adult classes. For a complete training program, plan to attend Family Dog following Puppy Pre-School. To make sure you get into the Family Dog of your choice, you can register for any of our classes in advance.
If you are looking for more info on housetraining and puppy problem avoidance, check out our Puppy Points Seminar, or enquire about our in-home Puppy Manners Appointments (for more info and pricing, click onto Personal Attention page.


COURSE FEE:  139.00 (+ taxes)

COURSE LENGTH:  4 weeks

COURSE NOTES:  *** Age requirement for this class is from 10-15 weeks. If you have a toy breed, the age requirements are 11-18 weeks. NOTE** please check out article on our Links page, from Veterinary Association, on the benefits of getting into Puppy Class early.
