Puppy Socialization/Training Class Combo (3-7 months)

Early socialization is one of the most beneficial activities you can provide your puppy. In fact, lack of socialization or improper socialization can increase the risk of future fear related behavior. We offer puppy owners an enriching and safe environment to socialize their puppies under the guidance of a professional trainer.

Socialization class Topics:

  • Interaction with other puppies and people
  • Exposure to various noises
  • Exposure to various surfaces
  • Obstacle challenges

We also offer training in conjunction with our socialization classes. We cover various topics that directly relate to raising a happy well behaved puppy. Our instructor will also answer any questions you may have about how to correctly train your puppy in their early developmental stage.
