CALLING ALL PUPPIES!!

CALLING ALL PUPPIES!!

Exploration and Engagement Puppy Class

The world is a giant place, especially for a tiny puppy. Without proper exposure, puppies can be left shy, anxous, or reactive in public spaces. To prevent this, puppies need more than just socialization. They need to learn how to interact in their world safely and appropriately. This class also sets the groundwork for attention, engagement, and self-control.

(This is not a manners class. This class does not teach sit or down, but it does start basic recalls and stays.)
