One of the most import things you can do to help your new puppy grow up to be a friendly, confident, well rounded dog is to socialize your puppy right away! Here at My Dog's Got Class, we offer Puppy Kindergarten classes to ensure your pup matures into a well-mannered dog.
Puppies from 8-18 weeks are welcome to enroll in this 1 hour class that runs for 6 sessions. We will expose your puppy to a variety of unfamiliar things to help build confidence in day-to-day situations. We also introduce the puppies to behaviors such as sit, down, stand, body handling, puppy recalls. The classes also help owners understand and acclimate to having a puppy in the house as well as giving you the knowledge and tools to help get you through the "puppy stage." This also helps to prevent larger behavior problems down the road.
We offer two types of classes to accommodate owners' varied and busy schedules.
Scheduled Puppy Classes
Our traditional puppy classes are scheduled conveniently on weekday mornings and evenings as well as Saturdays to fit most busy schedules.
One of the bonuses in this flexible program is there are always new puppies joining the class, which gives your puppy the opportunity to safely socialize with a variety of puppies during your sessions. Just register online for the start date you want and you will automatically be registered for a 6 week program! (please note: the 6 sessions need to be taken over a 8-week period of time). Remember, for best results, we recommend attending class regularly!
Our Open Enrollment classes are currently offered Saturday mornings.
A social puppy is a happy one. Our trainer-supervised play sessions offer appropriate and safe play opportunities. This 30-minute play time will include interactions with other puppies, outdoor play (when possible) and time with toys and fun equipment.
The Puppy Socials run most Sunday mornings and are for puppies up to 5 months of age. Please note some Sundays run at different times. Pre-registration is required and can be done online. Have an adolescent? Then try our Teen Dog Socials.
