For puppies that are ages 3 months to 24 months, this weekly class emphasizes socialization between other canines as well as meeting new humans. Staring with the basic obedience regimen, we place high priority on reading body language between canines and canine to human. Learn to read what your dog is communicating. An intro to agility fun is introduced the last half of the session. Participants should be prepared to bring shot records for canine to class. For pups ages 3 months to 2 years old maximum. Proof of appropriate puppy vaccinations and bordetella vaccination is required to attend. Ages 16 and up.
