puppy kindergarten

Puppy Kindergarten is a continuation of the Puppy Start Right Preschool. In this course, we'll continue to build on behaviors such as sit, down, touch, look at me, loose-leash walking, recall, and name recognition. We introduce concepts like settle on a mat, stay, and more. Our class helps you continue that positive, proactive socialization and exposure we talk so much about in preschool! In addition, this class is based on life-long goals for our students. Puppy parents should come out of this class with a good understanding of how dogs learn, their dog's basic needs, knowledge of how reinforcement and motivation will impact their puppy's behavior, and the ability to achieve and maintain control of their puppy through safe, positive methods of focusing dogs' attention.
