Puppy Kindergarten
We provide a holistic approach to training your dog and believe that a well-designed Puppy Kindergarten class should include a solid foundation in lure/reward based training while addressing all aspects of raising a well mannered, happy and confident puppy. Our Puppy Kindergarten class compliments the American Kennel Club’s S.T.A.R.sm Puppy Program which promotes socialization, training, activity and responsible ownership. Puppies will learn to play appropriately with other dogs as well as basic commands such as sit, down, come, stay and leash etiquette. You will learn how to discourage unwanted behaviors such as jumping and excitable greetings. In addition, you will learn training theory, puppy care and how to be a responsible member of the dog owning community. All of our seven-week Puppy Kindergarten classes will include an optional S.T.A.R. Puppy evaluation and certification. Puppies should receive a minimum of one set of vaccines at least seven days prior to attending the first class and a first de-worming, and should be kept up-to-date on vaccines throughout the class. If you have any questions or concerns about your puppy's vaccine status, please consult your veterinarian or visit www.AVSABonline. For dogs ten weeks to five months.
