Perfect Puppy – Play, Learn, Explore!

That cute little puppy got you chasing your tail? We’ll help you survive (and enjoy) puppyhood and help you grow your pup into the well-behaved adult companion you look forward to. Each class includes obedience training, confidence building, and question time. There is a different theme every week!

We’ll cover: 

Confidence Building and Socialization Puppy agility and games to help your puppy become confident and well-balanced. Including specific instruction on how to safely socialize your puppy during a pandemic.

Basic obedience to get your pup focused and following your direction

Problem-solving and prevention to make short work of house training, stop puppy from using you and-and your furniture- as chew toys

Puppies must have first set of distemper/parvo vaccinations at least one week before class to attend. They should be up to date on deworming schedule and not showing any signs of illness.

Puppies must stay up to date on vaccination and deworming schedule while attending classes. Typically vaccinations are given at 8 weeks then again at 11/12 weeks. Puppies over 12 weeks old should have two sets of DHPP vaccinations.

Our facility is fully sanitized and there is no direct interaction so it is safe for puppies with first vaccinations only to attend. Our requirements and cleaning protocols are based on recommendations in the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviour Position Statement on Puppy Socialization.

Rotating themed classes so you can start any week!

For puppies up to 4 months (16 weeks) old.
