puppy kindergarten (8-12 weeks old) $150
During the puppy phase of a dog’s life is the perfect time to help your puppy develop good habits; this class focuses on starting your puppy off on the path to a lifetime of good behavior. We’ll troubleshoot house training, play biting, inappropriate chewing and more. Class also focuses on proper socialization to other people and body handling, objects and other dogs. For spring, summer, and fall we meet on Saturdays in an enclosed location outdoors in Lower Mills Dorchester. Puppies are required to have had only their first set of shots before joining class, and show a negative stool sample result for parasites or Giardia. We agree with The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviorists recommendation “In general, puppies can start puppy socialization classes as early as 7-8 weeks of age.” Learn more about how important this is, even before all vaccinations are complete.
