Puppy Kindergarten

Just got a new puppy? Want a confident, well-behaved pet?

The most critical time in your puppy’s life is right now – puppyhood!

Our group puppy training classes, in-person, or online private lessons, plus puppy play groups offer puppy parents a variety of options for providing their puppy with the best education and socialization opportunities they require during the most critical, early months of their development.  

Puppy Kindergarten

Common puppy problems, such as house training, puppy biting, jumping up, building confidence and good puppy management are covered. Puppies get plenty of time to play off leash and socialize.
