Veterinary behaviorists1 recommend that puppies participate in a socialization program.The Kindergarten Puppy program is the best possible way to get your puppy started and a great foundation for the Family Manners classes. In this class we?l focus on introducing your puppy to many new people, other puppies, sites, sounds, and handling that they will likely be exposed to during their lifetime, in ways that will help them form positive associations. You?l receive tips on socialization, household manners, housetraining, and puppy mouthing among others. Basic behaviors covered in the class include sit, down, come, loose leash walking, sitting politely for petting, and much more.
