What Are Puppies?
Puppies are 'An 'EMERGENCY'! They learn & grow so fast that its best to teach them good habits about how to behave as soon as they come home . . . so they don't inadvertently learn and you don't inadvertently reward 'bad' behaviors.
When Should Puppies Go to Puppy Class?
Puppies should attend special puppy classes between ages 7 and 16 weeks (before they are fully immunized)! Because the first 3 months are the period when sociability outweighs fear, this is the primary window of opportunity for puppies to adapt to new people, animals, sounds and experiences. Incomplete or improper socialization during this important time can increase the risk of behavioral problems later in life, including fear, avoidance, and/or aggression.
Behavioral problems from lack of early socialization are the greatest threat to puppies staying in their original homes and are the primary reason dogs end up in animal shelters. Keep your puppy in its forever home - go to Puppy Class!
