Puppy Preschool & Socialization

Puppy Preschool

Socializing your puppy at a young age is one of the best things you can do to create a happy, enjoyable companion. It prevents behavioral issues from happening in the future and can actually be quite a fun process. Our 3-week+ course covers a list of topics + socialization with objects, people and other puppies.

Course Covers: Play biting, chewing, barking, house training, jumping, grooming tools, how to properly socialize your pup, basic first aid, object socialization, handling exercises and much more...

Object Socialization: While in puppy pre-school, your dog will encounter many things they will need in order to be properly socialized. They will get to meet and greet a variety of different ages of people and puppies. We will socialize them with objects such as: Teeter Totter, Wooden stairs, Vacuum, Wheel Chair, Puppy Swing, Trampoline, Ball Pit and more.

Handling Exercises: During this time, we will socialize your puppy with other people and puppies.

Topics: Each week, there will be new topics covered that will help you better understand your puppy. Also at this time, our trainer will answer any questions that you may have concerning your puppy.
