Puppy Preschool Class

Ages 7 - 16 Weeks

Designed so you and your new pup have the tools you need.

Puppy behavior develops quickly. 
Topics cover Puppy Socialization, Growth and Development, Training Foundations, Problem Solving, and Prevention - because we know prevention is key!

The #1 reason for puppy or dog surrender is the development of behavioral issues.
Risks related to not socializing a puppy before three months are higher than any risk of infection.
All training spaces are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to each class.
Read the AVSAB and AAHA position statements for the latest recommendations on puppies' needs for an early  socialization and training start.

“It is in my puppy contract! Each family must work with a trainer to make sure that my puppy and the family get off to the best possible start. I'm so impressed with WDU's knowledge, teaching style and manner that I recommend them to all my parents.”   Chris Prentiss, Breeder/Owner-Sweetgrass Havanese
