Puppy Kindergarten
4 Week Class
For puppies between the ages of 10 weeks and 17 weeks old at the start of class
The first issue we will cover in class is how to handle puppy biting! 
Yes, they all do it, but they sure have sharp teeth.
Learn how to kindly manage and redirect this behavior.   
  We will cover foundation behaviors like Housetraining,
Come When Called, Sit Sequence, Attention and Name Recognition.
Off-leash play is an important part of this class, and we will discuss appropriate
 and inappropriate play behavior and when to interrupt. 
We also introduce novel and interesting items to the pups each week
as a part of their socialization,
which is so much more than just exposing them to people and dogs.
