Puppy Start Right Online Preschool Program

 
PSR Online_Background Removededited.png

Welcome to puppy preschool!

This five-week accredited program is a once in your puppy’s lifetime opportunity to get the best start in life.

 

First, we’ll help you work on the less-charming puppy behaviors like house training, nipping, chewing, and jumping, just to name a few.

 

And we’ll focus on your Dynamic Puppy's P.P.E.© (Positive, Proactive Experiences) aka socialization, a critical early development process for building confident, easy-going adult dogs.

Looking forward to a dog who is calm and friendly around everyone, dog and human?

A dog who can easily roll with the punches and accompany you anywhere with grace and good manners? Socialization is the key, and it’s best started before 16 weeks of age.

If you’ve got a young one, don’t wait - start now before the social window starts to close!

 

Think your puppy is too young for Preschool?

Read why the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior urges you to take advantage of early puppy socialization classes to avoid common behavior problems in later life.

“Marty was your typical puppy…”

“Marty was your typical puppy, biting, jumping, stealing.

You'll get so much understanding of what your puppy is doing and why, and that you are not alone!

You get the skills to teach them to be the dog you want,

not reactively trying to keep him from being the dog you [don’t].” –Glen P.
