Puppy Socialization Class

Our puppy socialization classes instruct owners how to properly introduce and socialize their puppies new pets, people and situations. While these classes do instruct owners how to properly train and handle their puppies, the purpose of these classes is not obedience training. We do provide behaviour consultations and counselling but do not provide private training. We can refer you to local trainers in the area if your puppy requires further training.

When should my puppy start school?

Healthy puppies should start puppy classes at 8 weeks of age, just after their first set of vaccines. They should also receive some deworming and flea prevention treatments prior to puppy classes.

Where do you offer socialization classes?

We offer puppy socialization classes here at the clinic on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 pm.

What are the training methods used to train puppies?

We use non-evasive training methods, such as rewarding the behaviours we want and interrupting or ignoring the behaviours we don’t want.

Do classes take dogs from puppyhood to advanced obedience?

These classes prepare your puppy for advanced classes which we can recommend as well as help you and your puppy be happy and confident throughout life.
