General Information

Behavior

  • Kinder Puppy Class  
    Positive Solutions * Positive Results
    The classes are instructed by Susan Signor, Certified Dog Pet Trainer of Dog Dilemma. The primary and most important time for puppy socialization is the first three months of life. Incomplete or improper socialization during this important time can increase the risk of behavioral problems later in life including fear, avoidance, and/or aggression. In general, puppies can start puppy socialization classes as early as 7-8 weeks of age. Puppies should receive a minimum of one set of vaccines at least 7 days prior to the first class and a deworming. They should be kept up to date on vaccines throughout the class. 
    Action Packed 90 minute classes help maximize the critical learning period in the life of your puppy!
