About the Class
Your puppy will make new friends and learn good play behavior while developing confidence and engagement skills. All classes in this series are live.
This class provides you and your puppy with vital early training skills to develop basic manners and learn boundaries. The instructor will address early training and behavior issues that all puppies exhibit. Get tips for socialization activities during pandemic restrictions. Puppy Kindergarten is recommended by The American Veterinary Medical Association and by the American Society of Veterinary Behaviorists.

This class is recommended for puppies 8-16 weeks old. Be ready with a flat collar or front or back attaching harness, a 4 to 6 foot leash and lots of small, moist, digestible treats. Clickers are optional but welcome.
