Puppy Pre-School Class

Pit bull puppyThe number one most important thing for puppies is that they are socialized to as many things, places and people as possible.  Once puppies reach a certain age—around 4 to 6 months—their ability to easily accept new experiences begins to wane. For this reason, we promote early and positive socialization and strive to give owners the tools to help their puppy grow into happy and well adjusted adult dogs.  Early socialization helps to minimize the risk of dogs developing all sorts of behavioral problems stemming from fear such as aggression, agoraphobia, reactivity towards certain people, animals, or situations.  Getting your puppy into puppy classes helps prepare them for life as adults as well helps teach them manners and various commands they’ll be able to use throughout their lives which sets them up for a lifetime of success!   Remember, while now is a crucial time to socialize your puppy, the need to see and experience new things will continue throughout your puppy’s life.

In puppy class we go over the best ways to meet your puppies basic needs in a way that makes everyone happy.  This class teaches students how to provide outlets for normal puppy behavior and how to manage and control inappropriate behavior such as jumping, chewing on shoes or nipping hands and legs.  We help students understand the importance of and be able to implement management strategies to prevent unwanted puppy behavior such as hard mouthing, potty accidents and chewing on inappropriate items.
