Puppy Prime Time: Field Trip


  • 25 US dollars
  • Various Georgetown locations

Service Description

In our Field Trip sessions, puppies experience positive exposures to new things out in the real world! This class is for puppies 8 - 16 weeks. In this class that meets in public spaces, puppies have opportunities to meet unfamiliar people, and get controlled exposures to unfamiliar sights, sounds, smells, and touch, in a positive way. Your puppy will also have the opportunity to see unfamiliar dogs at a distance (puppies will be safe from germs in puppy strollers, play pens or backpacks provided by us). By building these positive associations, we effectively build a calm, confident, and cooperative canine partner.  This class is designed for 1 - 7 pups, but PLEASE NOTE that field trip sessions are not puppy playtimes. Puppies get the opportunity to observe other dogs at close distances, but will not be directly interacting with or playing with them. If you are interested in having your puppy play with other pups, please check our Events Calendar for upcoming Classroom sessions (for puppies 8 - 12 weeks only). ​ 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: That new things are great To be calm around new things​ To be calm when greeting people To cooperate with routine care (body handling and husbandry procedures) To offer eye contact around distractions To be calm and comfortable when separated from owner Class meets Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. (check our Calendar for upcoming sessions) and location is usually a Farmer's Market in Georgetown.
