We keep it lively and fun as we cover the very latest strategies for puppy raising.

Step #2: Puppy Preschool 
Attend up to 16 weeks
Maximize your pup’s potential with these early learning sessions. Every session includes a special rotating topic with training exercises. Ideally, attend as many of these sessions as you can, right up to starting Manners 1 at about 16 weeks of age. Note: To support social distancing the pup’s will not be interacting with each other.




Step #3: Manners 1 
Start after 16 weeks
This 6-week class covers all the core behaviors: Touch, Sit, Down,Stay, Place, Come, Walk on a Loose Leash and Leave It. Pups will learn to be calm and focused, even with distractions. We use positive, reward-based techniques to help you get great results.
