Puppy Preschool is designed to help you get started off on the right paw with your dog (or help you get back on track!). Puppies are cute, yet time-consuming. Adorable, yet exhausting. This class is for four-legged students 7-16 weeks and their people. Socialization is key during this developmental phase for your pup to grow into a well-rounded dog. So even if your puppy is perfect, bring him or her to class anyway to get the all important interactions with other pups and people. We will also teach you how to deal with those pesky puppy issues like house-training, nipping/mouthing and chewing. You dogs will learn to respond on cue to sit, down, relax and leave it. Next class: Level 1.

It seems like our dogs don’t listen when something more exciting is at hand. In this class, focus and attention are improved as you and your dog learn to work together with new and increased distractions. This class is designed to continue building your relationship while you prepare for the achievement of your Canine Good Citizen award. Bring a mat, carpet square or bed to this class.

Testimonials

Thanks to last weeks class regarding food and the danger of certain foods, I was informed.

Millie - GErman Shepherd DogIronically enough my youngest daughter (4 yrs old) was sneaking some grapes - she didn't want to get caught, so she hid them on our shortest counter in the kitchen behind my purse. I was getting ready upstairs, when I came down stairs there was Millie with a bag of grapes. I wasn't sure if she ate any or not, so I called the emergency vet and they instructed to induce vomiting. So down the hatch - hydrogen peroxide, it took seconds to discover Millie had ate between 20-30 grapes. Which for her size could/would have lead to instant Renal Failure. Very scary. I am glad to report she is just fine. Thank God.

Needless to say grapes are permanently off our grocery list for awhile and it was a good reminder to me that even through she is being a very well behaved Pup..She still is a "puppy". haha..

So a huge Thank you for sharing your knowledge of "bad" foods, I may have blown her eating grapes off otherwise.

John the BullmastiffHey!  I know that I won't get a chance to talk to you at class tonight but wanted to throw the biggest THANK YOU your way!  Our morning walk was absolutely, positively, hands down the BEST walk I have ever had with any of my dogs!  A relaxing walk for me was like a Bigfoot sighting:  you hear about it, know about it, but you know you'll never actually see it for yourself.  John not only walked at my side, he only pulled 3x (when we first started out).  I didn't have to constantly talk to him (he probably appreciated it) & it was AWESOME!  Oh yeah, he waved at Jim this morning!

Thank you so very, very much!
