Puppy Kindergarten

The single most important (and fun) thing you can do for your puppy? Puppy Kindergarten!!  For puppies between 10-24 weeks old, socialization with other puppies and people is crucial in order to help them become social, well-balanced dogs.  While making lots of friends during off-leash playtime, your puppy will gain confidence by participating in activities and learning basic commands.  Discussions for puppy parents include puppy development, house-training, destructive chewing, and play-biting.
