Puppy Kindergarten, How Important Is It For Your Puppy?

Perhaps you’ve trained previous puppies over the years, and feel that you don’t need help training your newest addition. Just like most things, puppy management and training techniques change significantly and if the class is run by a knowledgeable instructor who keeps abreast of current and proven training techniques your puppy will benefit greatly from the socialization.  You may even pick up a new trick or two.

Knowing the ins and outs of puppy behaviour, how to motivate your puppy correctly so he wants to work with you, all involve learning on your part. What you leaned with your previous puppy many years ago, is now outdated.  Even some of the newer training trends, like the use of puppy pee pads, are strongly discouraged by experienced trainers.

Every puppy is different, even puppies within the same litter are different from each other, and respond differently depending upon their experiences.  Meaning they will each require different handling.  An experienced and qualified instructor has much to offer you and your new puppy. This is an opportunity that you don’t want to miss. Your puppy goes through critical developmental stages. The intial one is when you first get your puppy. If the socialization requirements during these stages are not met, the impact on your puppy will last a lifetime.

Puppy kindergarten is an opportunity to learn proper handling and other behaviour techniques with pups less than 16 weeks of age that will prevent most potential problems from turning into serious issues as your puppy matures. Our goal for our clients is to provide them with the best start for their new puppies.  We want you to enjoy your puppy, and help you raise them to be a happy and well-adjusted adult dog that is a joy to live with, and not a threat to others.

We offer a fantastic puppy kindergarten class to clients with puppies under 16 weeks. This class provides your puppy with an opportunity to interact with other young pups and humans.  Families learn puppy management techniques that work. Your puppy is handled by new people, and learn some choice games to get you started on the right foot.

Additional sessions may be booked with Leslie Marshall, one of our Registered Veterinary Technicians, who is also known as ‘The Puppy Tutor’.
