Puppy Prime Time: Classroom


  • 25 US dollars
  • The Social Pup Play Room

Service Description

As far as puppy socialization goes, 8 - 12 weeks old is the prime of your puppy's life! This is a special time in a dog's life when they are especially open to new things, and it's the ideal time to give them positive socialization experiences. Puppies that are not exposed to a variety of people and things they will encounter in everyday life, are more prone to develop anxiety and fear.  In this ongoing weekly class that meets in our Play Room, puppies have opportunities to meet unfamiliar people, and interact with unfamiliar objects, sights, sounds, smells, and touch, in a positive way. This class is designed for 1 - 4 pups, and when we have two or more puppies signed up there will be opportunities for puppy play time. By building these positive associations, we effectively build a calm, confident, and cooperative canine partner.  ​ You will learn: What to expect during puppyhood How to interpret dog body language How to provide optimal puppy socialization experiences safely How to meet all of your puppy's needs How to prevent problem behaviors  How to build desired behaviors An effective and positive method for puppy potty training An effective and positive method for puppy crate training Puppies will learn: To be calm around new things​ Response to name/come when called To wait quietly in a crate, or on a mat How to greet people calmly To cooperate with routine care (body handling and husbandry procedures) Class normally meets Saturdays at 11:00 a.m., but is subject to change seasonally. **All puppies are screened for health and up-to-date vaccinations.
