Our puppy sessions are a drop-in format. Once registered, you may start any week you choose and pay as you go No need to commit to 5 or 6 consecutive weeks. Since the best time to socialize a puppy is 8-20 weeks of age. Our primary focus is socialization and play with other puppies, confidence building obstacles, and basic manners such as sitting, down and stay. You will learn how to desensitize your puppy to handling so that your veterinarian and groomer love you. Classes are on Sunday mornings at 12:00 noon and last 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.
