Puppy Pre-School

Puppy Pre-School
It is up to you to take the first steps towards helping your puppy develop and grow in the right direction. There is critical imprinting which needs to be established in a puppy’s early stages of life for a happy, well-adjusted adult dog.
When to Begin
It is crucial that you begin an educational program with your puppy at an early age. Between the ages of 7 and 16 weeks, dogs begin to form attitudes and opinions that will last a lifetime. Puppies should begin preschool as close to eight weeks of age as possible, yet no later than 14 weeks of age. This early start is important in preventing future behavioral problems.
Your puppy cannot become the ideal of “Pet” without your guidance and an understanding of his nature and his needs. Your puppy wants to please you, he simply does not know how. Allow us to assist you in understanding your dog and in getting the most out of your lives together.
Weekly Sessions
Our small, weekly preschool sessions allow for your personal concerns and questions. Through the guidance of our staff and the participation of other puppy owners, you will learn a great deal about socialization, confidence building, basic problem solving, and other owner-educational topics.
The key to the perfect family dog is proper socialization. During your weekly sessions you will learn how to begin the process that is critical to the positive social development of your puppy. While attending our program your puppy will come in contact with people of various ages, races, and sizes; from infants in strollers to uniformed public servants. We encourage and monitor handling exercises where your pet is exposed to new people in a gentle, positive manner.
Proper socialization during this short window of opportunity will guide your puppy’s development while he gains a clear understanding of appropriate behavior.
Confidence Building
At puppy preschool you will also learn confidence-building techniques to help your pet attain positive experiences in new situations. Using proper skills, we will help your puppy overcome most of his unreasonable fears in our environment. For many dogs, items such as vacuum cleaners, hair dryers, lawn mowers, and umbrellas are new experiences that, if introduced improperly, may lead to permanent fears or even aggression towards people.
Basic Problem Solving
Our staff will assist you in solving many types of behavior problems. You will receive useful information on housebreaking, chewing, and play-biting, which can lead to unwanted aggression. You will learn how to teach your puppy to sit and walk on a leash.
Through planning and careful attention to each puppy as an individual, we can help you learn how to guide your pet’s development in order to prevent problem behaviors.
Owner Educational Topics
We will discuss a variety of owner-education topics each week that will help you raise a happier, healthier pet. During these discussions you will learn the basics in dog care, including poison control, nail trimming, ear cleaning, general grooming, and flea control.
You will be pleased at the affordable cost of our puppy preschool classes. For $115.00 you will attend three (3) group sessions to give your puppy a head start on becoming a well-adjusted, well-behaved dog.
Puppy training can be fun for you and your dog!
