*Offered to puppies 8 weeks to 4 1/2 months, no prerequisite training required.
Learn how to raise a happy, well-behaved puppy. The first few months of a puppy’s life are considered its sensitive period. It is during this time that a puppy must be properly socialized and exposed to new people, places, children, other pets, sights and sounds. These group sessions in our facility emphasize the prevention of common behavior problems, establishing a strong bond between owners and their puppies, encouraging good temperament, and teaching basic household manners. This program also covers basic obedience cues such as Sit, Down, Come, Drop It and others.
Classes are held weekly. Just select the day of the week you want to come and call the office for a start date:
- Tuesdays from 6:15 – 7:15 PM in Chestnut Ridge.
- Saturdays from 9:30 – 10:30 AM in Chestnut Ridge.
