Puppy Kindergarten Training Class
Owning a puppy is hard work, fun and very rewarding. We have carefully drafted this unique class to ensure that puppies develop behaviourally, physically, cognitively, socially and emotionally. In our unique, innovative curriculum, we’ve integrated the latest in canine behavioural and cognitive scientific research, to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your puppy.
After successful completion of this course, puppies might be entitled to earn their AKC S.T.A.R PUPPY Certificate, and they might even qualify to take their AKC Canine Good Citizen Test, which will be offered at the end of each term.

Why should I join the Puppy Kindergarten?
The critical socialization period for puppies occurs roughly between three and 16 weeks of age. Anything you puppy missed to learn during this highly sensitive time frame, will only be very difficult if not impossible to learn in later life.
A well-socialized puppy will develop into a safer, more relaxed and enjoyable pet dog, since she is more comfortable in a wider variety of situations than a poorly socialized dog. Dogs that attended a kindergarten class are much less likely to behave fearfully or aggressively when faced with something new in the future.
Who can join Puppy Kindergarten?
This course is made for puppies of all sizes, from 2 to 5 month of age. It covers crucial socialization towards other dogs, people and distractions. Very energetic pups that get excited around other dogs, will learn to calm down and focus.
Puppies must have had their first core vaccine against DHLPP, must have adequate tick and flee prevention, and must come from a reputable breeder or rescue group.

Minimum number of puppies: 4
Note: Don’t feed your puppy right before class. Instead, bring their meal to class. Make sure your treats are in small, bite-sized pieces that won’t fill your pup up or take too long to eat.
