Surviving Puppyhood! Preschool and Semi-Private Lessons

Semi-Private Puppy Lessons are customized semi-private sessions for your puppy and up to two other puppies. We will address normal puppy behaviors, prevention of the development of behavior problems and teach foundation manners.  Semi-Private Puppy Lessons are for puppies ages 8-16 weeks. Our online classroom and the book Puppy Start Right is included with your fee.

Puppy Preschool is designed to facilitate socialization, address normal puppy behaviors, and prevent the development of behavior problems. The primary focus of Puppy Preschool is socialization to people, things and other dogs. While Puppy Preschool covers problematic puppy behaviors and some manners, the follow-up course Puppy Kindergarten is focused on manners and life skills.

Playtime for Puppy Preschool and Semi-Private Puppy Lessons is for puppies who show an interest in play and can be well-matched with an appropriate playmate.
