Goals

The goal of our puppy program is to give your puppy the best start possible in both appropriate behavior and socialization while you navigate the joys and challenges of puppyhood. Your puppy will not come out of our training program as a little puppy robot, but they will have gained a solid foundation in the skills they need to become a well-behaved family member. Once your puppy has graduated from their program, it is important that you continue to maintain and reinforce the skills they have learned throughout the life of your dog.

Requirements

  • Age: Eligible puppies must be between 8 and 16 weeks of age at start to take advantage of their early socialization window. If dogs do not pass an initial temperament evaluation conducted on their first day to remain enrolled in the program. An alternate training plan will be recommended to the puppy parent if the puppy is not appropriate for day-school training and refund for remaining package will be issued.
  • Vaccinations: Puppies must be up-to-date with and maintaining their booster vaccination series. Of particular importance are Distemper and Parvo. See Vaccination Requirements »
  • Daily Health: Puppies must pass a daily health check before class admittance for the day. This is to ensure each puppy is healthy enough to socialize with other puppies for their own safety and well-being and the safety of their classmates.
