| We encourage you to enrol your new, young puppy (10-18 weeks old at the start of class, minimum 2 sets of shots) in our PUPPY Obedience/Socialization class. This is a very popular class which provides the owner with a wealth of information as well as providing the puppy with an opportunity to socialize with people, dogs and
learn basic obedience in a fun atmosphere. Graduates of the puppy class may progess to LEVEL 1 to continue their obedience training.
This motivational and fun class is just the right start for the newest addition to your family. Using food and toys as tools your puppy will be introduced to obedience and participate in confidence-building games and exercises.
