Puppy Kindergarten:

For graduates of Puppy Start Right Preschool and new puppies between 14 weeks and 5 months old; minimum first set of vaccinations required at least 10 days prior to first class

(please click here for full Health & Vaccine Requirements).

Puppy Kindergarten provides your puppy with ongoing socialization and you with the skills to teach the foundation behaviours that set the stage for future learning, such as Attention, Sit, Down, Stand, Stay, Come, Targeting, Leave it/Drop it, Go to your mat, and more. You will also learn how to prevent common behaviour issues such as jumping, mouthing, pulling on the leash, barking, and more.  (Puppy Start Right Preschool graduates will continue working on these skills at greater levels of difficulty.)  Through this class you will gain the knowledge to prepare your puppy to become a happy, well-behaved lifetime companion.  Classes are limited to 4 puppies to ensure everyone gets personal attention.
