Puppy Kindergarten

Puppy Kindergarten

You have a new puppy...it may be daunting to figure out what you need to train them! You not only want them to grow up to be a well-behaved and well-adjusted dog, you also want to get through their puppyhood and adolescence unscathed! We will walk you through how to help you do just that in this course.

Course Details

Puppies are essential walking furry sponges. They are, by design, meant to learn an incredible amount in short period of time, and all of this learning will shape and mold who they will be as adults.

For your puppy to be successful, they must learn:

  • What may, and may not, be chewed
  • The proper way to play with people and other puppies or dogs
  • That jumping up does not get what they want
  • Where to potty
  • How to settle and rest
  • and much more!

We will also walk you through what to do to set yourself up for success and to avoid becoming frustrated or overwhelmed.
