Smart Puppy Group Course

Overview


This group course is all about the puppies and socialization. This is the first opportunity to help them figure out how to communicate with other dogs and interact with the human world. This class is held on Sunday evenings at 6:00 pm. We require a minimum of 4 puppies to be registered for the course to have it. We have found that if we have fewer puppies they do not get the socialization benefits of a group class.

This class is designed for puppies that have completed their puppy series of shots. Puppies should be 10 to 16 weeks of age on the first day of class. The focus for the puppies is gaining confidence, acceptable play with other puppies, and bite inhibition. This can only be learned through appropriate supervised play with other puppies.

The course covers topics like sociali
zation, Natural behaviors, Crate training, Housebreaking, Leadership skills, and Reading body language. You will also help your pup with impulse control, basic manners, and commands. Expect to learn how to help your pup stop jumping and nipping and learn to sit, down, and the foundation for stay and walking on a loose leash.
