Our puppy sessions are a drop-in format. Once registered, you may start any week you choose. Since the best time to socialize a puppy is 8-16/20 weeks of age. Our primary focus is socialization and play with other puppies, confidence building obstacles, and basic manners such as sit, down and stay. You will learn how to desensitize your puppy to handling so that your veterinarian and groomer love you. Classes are Sunday mornings at 12:00 noon and lasts 45 minutes. We meet at Hamilton Animal Hospital, 1526 Easton Road, Roslyn, PA 19001. You’ll need the most recent record of vaccinations. Please call prior to coming your first time so that we may add you to the roster and gather needed information from you.
This class is for dogs 4+ months old. All basic manners and cues are covered including sit/down/stay; drop it/leave it; touch, come when called, loose leash walking, eye contact and name recognition. Age related problem behaviors such as barking, jumping, sit for greetings and digging are addressed.
