Adding a puppy to your family is an exciting
time. They are cute, cuddly little balls of energy. Puppy
training is a top priority in raising a well behaved obedient dog and having a
safe, happy family.
Your young puppy is totally reliant and dependent on you to domesticate
his world. You play the lead role for shaping your pup's character,
temperament and behavior habits that will follow him throughout his
life. The quality of your puppy's life and future are in your hands. Let us help you
make it the best possible experience you've ever had.
AKC STAR Puppy Classes: For purebreed & mixed breed puppies
Age limit: 8 weeks to 5 months (proof of vaccine/exam required).
8-20 weeks make the best students because they are sponges when it comes to learning! The most urgent priority in your puppy's development is to socialize your puppy to a wide variety of people, especially children, men, and strangers. Well-socialized puppies grow up to be wonderful companion dogs, whereas antisocial dogs are difficult, time-consuming, and potentially dangerous. Your puppy needs to learn to enjoy the company of all people and to enjoy being handled by all people, especially children and strangers.Training puppies at this critical stage in their development helps to build their confidence around people and other dogs and prevents obnoxious behaviors.

Socialization to other puppies and people
