Puppies come into this program typically around 10-11 weeks of age and top out of the program around 16 weeks of age. Our Puppy Program emphasizes the significance of understanding how puppies learn and how to communicate with them. Come learn the encouraging language of positive reinforcement that will provide a rewarding, respectful, lifelong relationship between you and your puppy!

No Classes On: Sept 11; Oct 23; Nov 27; Dec 25; Jan 1
Classes held EVERY Saturday unless it is a major holiday or there is another conflict (see above).
If this is your first class, Saturday morning class starts with an orientation at 9:00am - class starts at 9:30am and lasts an hour.
You only have to register once (hit the botton below), however if you plan on attending the full 5-week on-going series (this class rotates through a 5 class series) please send me an email. I'm wanting to stay under normal capacity in order to give all puppy teams plenty of room.
You are welcome to come to puppy class until your puppy ages out and/or a K9 Manners - Level 1 class opens up.
If this is your first class you must come to orientation!
