Puppy Kindergarten

Puppy Kindergarten is an important step in creating a confident, relaxed, and well behaved dog!

Your puppy will:
  • Learn basic manners, such as polite walking and greeting people
  • Socialize with other puppies and new people
  • Associate fun experiences with our hospital
You will learn how to:
  • Teach your puppy manners using positive reinforcement training techniques
  • Prevent and solve common behavior problems such as play biting, barking, and stealing objects
Kindergarten participants receive a Start Right puppy handbook as well as a clicker.

Puppy Kindergarten classes are held on Wednesdays at 7:45 pm. The whole family is welcome to participate.

Puppies must be between the ages of 16 weeks and 7 months to attend class. 

All puppies must receive a DAPLP (Distemper combination) and Bordatella (kennel cough) vaccine at least 7 days prior to starting class.

If you are interested in signing up for Puppy Kindergarten, please click here to watch Canine 101. This informative orientation is a prerequisite for the class. When you are done with the video take the short survey. Peyton or Betsy will get back with you to get you and your puppy signed up for class.
