Puppy Kindergarten is a set of five classes designed to ensure that you receive urgent training at the earliest possible time. There are three elements of puppy training that must be addressed in a puppy’s first three months of life:
Puppies must be thoroughly, yet safely, socialized to people so that later in life, they do not become wary or fearful of children, strangers, or men.
Puppies must learn to be gentle with their mouths so they do not inflict serious injury on people or animals as their jaws grow substantially stronger.
Puppies must learn how to live in a human home so they do not damage your belongings or suffer from separation anxiety.
Though not as urgent as the above items, puppies will be introduced to basic manners and obedience commands as well.
