Puppy Kindergarten

New puppy? Now what?!?

Step off on the right paw with Puppy Kindergarten, open to puppies 8-19 weeks old at the start of class. If your new puppy will be older than 19 weeks when the class is set to begin, please enroll in Basic Training instead.

Puppy Kindergarten focuses on safe socialization, confidence building, and positive reinforcement training. Learn how to manage and prevent problem puppy behaviors such as puppy biting, house training. Start building your puppy’s skills in loose leash walking, recall, sit, leave-it and more. Playtime depends on the dynamic of the puppies in each class and is not guaranteed. It is at the trainer’s discretion.

Safe and appropriate play is important for young puppies to experience. Because of this, our in-class playtime will depend on the dynamic of the puppies in each class and is not guaranteed. It is at the trainer’s discretion. Puppies need to have had their first round of shots and a negative fecal sample in order to start the class.

Unless otherwise noted, Puppy Kindergarten classes last forty-five minutes and runs for four weeks.
