CONTINUOUS ENROLLMENT PUPPY START RIGHT PRESCHOOL CLASS

Starting Jan 8, 2023

Every Sunday at 4:30 PM 

Instructor: Jenn Stellbrink, BSc, KPA-CTP, Certified Puppy Start Right Preschool Instructor, Fear Free Certified

Proper socialization is extremely important for puppies under 16 weeks of age. Studies show that positive exposure to puppies, people, handling, novel items and sounds can prevent behavior concerns. Unfortunately, getting your puppy into a socialization class at the right time can be a challenge.

We've created a solution with continuous enrollment

  • Puppies under 16 weeks of age can start class right away, depending on availability

  • Puppies continue attending weekly classes until they reach adolescence

  • Once puppies reach adolescence, they are eligible to sign up for Basic Manners Classes

  • This customized approach ensures that your puppy experiences positive socialization exactly when it's needed
