Our Puppy K and Play course is designed to get you and your puppy off to a great start. This course includes: Loose Leash Walking, Come/Recall, Sit, Down, Stay, Settle, Touch, and Stand. In addition to learning basic obedience, we will focus on avoiding common problem behaviors in the home, such as housebreaking, chewing, nipping, and jumping on guests. We will also review puppy socialization, handling, and basic care and grooming needs.


Proof of age appropriate vaccinations (DHLPP, Bordatella) is required to participate in class. If you have heard that puppies should not attend class until after they receive their Rabies vaccination - click here to read why that is not advisable.


No refunds will be issued once class begins.


Missed classes: Please note that we are unable to schedule make-up classes as the majority of our scheduled classes are full. Please try to schedule your puppy's spay/neuter after your class concludes if possible to avoid missing classes.
