 WHY FROM A BEHAVIORAL STANDPOINT?

 

BECAUSE between 7 and 18 weeks of age is a crucial time period in the social development of your puppy. 

BECAUSE the #1 reason that dogs, 3 years of age and under, are relinquished to shelters and euthanized daily is "behavior problems” .

 

 

BECAUSE it is long been understood by behaviorists, trainers, vet techs, veterinarians and shelter staff that Early Training and Socialization create a well-adjusted dog. 

BECAUSE it is the ideal time to teach your puppy about biting, chewing, gaining confidence and about making wise decisions.  


 

BECAUSE a puppy can easily learn commands like sit, down & leave-it any time BUT you will never regain this opportunity to develop good social skills naturally & with such little effort

 

 

 

 
Please note that group training for puppies that have not completed their vaccinations must take place in an indoor sterilized training rink.
