PUPPY

We have specialized in puppy and adolescent development classes since 2003. Our goal is to equip the HANDLER with understanding, patience, good teaching skills, knowledge, and information. 


We start puppies at 10 weeks of age in our beginning class, and we offer age appropriate classes to accommodate the developmental changes your puppy will be going through. 


Our PUPPY SERIES is broken down by age. Each class is four weeks in length, one hour per week. - This is the starting age range for each class


THE BEGINNING - 10 - 14 weeks of age

PUPPY II - 15 - 20 weeks of age

PUPPY III - 20 - 25 weeks of age
