Puppy Kindergarten


SKU: Group-1 Category:


FOR YOUNG PUPPIES, age 8-20 weeks: Puppies are our passion!  We know how to set a pup up for success in life such that new pup parents are more likely to  side step serious behavior issues as their pup grows towards adolescence and beyond, to maturity.  Early intervention is critical to having a great family pet dog.  We take a behavioral and holistic approach to working with you and new your puppy. We can spot early red flags for serious behavioral issues that most pet dog owners do not see. We can then adjust training and behavior priorities according to what your pup truly needs most. We help young pups grow their confidence and new pup-owners how to truly engage and connect with their new puppy through play and games.
