Puppy Class:

Puppies 7-24 weeks of age are welcome. This class meets for 1 hour per week for 7 weeks. Puppy class provides controlled, positive exposure to many new experiences. Puppies affected by adverse experiences during this early fear period often cannot be rehabilitated. Your puppy is in a critical time of his or her development. This is the BEST time to shape his or her personality to be a happy family member. Puppy class is the BEST investment you can make to avoid future behavior issues.
