Perfect Puppy Kindergarten

Puppies between 8 to 14 weeks at the start of the class

Take advantage of the critical learning period in your puppy’s life & get your pup off to a right start with a class that focuses on:

Appropriate Socialization: Safely and appropriately introduce different people, dogs, sounds, objects and more in a way that helps your puppy gain confidence and have fun.

Prevention of Fear, Phobias and Aggression: Confidence building when alone and other situations, being comfortable in the crate, and other problem prevention exercises.

Solutions to Common Puppy Problems: Barking, destructive chewing, play biting, house training, and other behaviors normal for puppies.

Body Handling and Grooming: Teach the puppy to be comfortable being groomed, handled, and restrained — all of which are extremely important for vet visits and day-to-day hygiene.

In each class, we’ll also discuss common puppy challenges and solutions, learn to understand body language and know what our puppy communicates. We will teach our puppy to settle down calmly, practice self-control, and understand and respect boundaries.

Please Note:

  • This is not an obedience class.
  • Obedience training can definitely play a role, but it’s not our first priority for young puppies.
  • We want to focus on setting them up to be comfortable with the world and the types of interactions that will be a part of daily life for them as adults.

What Our Clients Say

“I took several classes with D For Dog and loved all of them. I really enjoyed that many of the classes were held in different locations around town so your pup gets to practice the skills in the real world.”

Kelly L, Mom of River & Kaylee, Pitbull puppie

“The one thing that sets Kaajal apart from other trainers is that she uses Positive reinforcement methods and is remarkably good at training humans in how they connect with their puppy as that sets the right foundation.”

Mikkin P, Dad of Munchkin, a Labradoodle Puppy
