Puppy Pre K & Discovery Socials
Introducing our brand new Puppy Pre K Program!
WHAT IS PUPPY PRE K?
The first 16 weeks of a puppies life can be the most critical time for development of important lifelong skills. In our Puppy Pre K, your puppy will be with a skilled professional trainer who will help them learn manners (no jumping, no biting etc), how to appropriately play with other puppies, expose them to novel items to help build their confidence and problem solving skills as well as teach them how to settle in their crate. We will also reinforce behaviors learned in class such as Touch, Sit, Down & Leave it. This is not a day training program but a way for your puppy to have some fun and learn manners in a safe enviroment.
WHO IS IT FOR?
This program is for puppies 9-16 weeks (older shy puppies can come until 20 weeks or until it is no longer appropriate). Puppies can start Puppy Pre K 7 days after their first distemper parvo vaccine provided they have lived in your home for at least 10 days.
WHY PUPPY PRE K VS TRADITIONAL DAY CARE?
Puppy Pre K is limited to a maximum of 5 puppies which means that there will be careful attention paid to each puppy. We will reinforce positive behaviours (sitting for attention, resting calmly in a crate) and help discourage unwanted behaviors (biting, over the top play and chewing on in appropriate objects). Your puppy will redirected when unwanted behaviors such as over the top play, jumping up or biting for attention appear, helping them learn how to communicate with us.
