8pm: CDTC Puppy Class with A.K.C S.T.A.R Puppy Test - 6 weeks

Such an exciting time having a new puppy come into your lives!  It is very important to start them on a good path with health and wellness and an important part of that is their mental training and socialization.  We are going to be training you and your puppy on a variety of new skills and behaviors.

Basic obedience such a sit, down and stay will be taught as well as impulse control, grooming skills, loose leash walking and play are all included. Focus is on building a healthy relationship with our puppies so we can have a harmonious life with them! We will also cover good socialization skills and how to encourage them. 

On the final week, week 6, you and your puppy will take the A.K.C S.T.A.R Puppy Exam by an A.K.C Evaluator.

We also encourage you to attend as many of the socialization events we offer during your 6-week training class and beyond.  These events are designed for you and your puppy to experience a variety of safe and new stuff.  We have wobble boards, tunnels, obstacles to climb on and go under, station for nose work and more.
