Our Puppy Socialization & Play School is aimed at creating a polite, mannerly, and well-balanced puppy. With our program, it’s possible to prevent, reduce or eliminate many common problems in a FUN, encouraging, & mentally stimulating way! Each Phase progresses towards advancing your puppies experience and helping your puppy learn to socialize & be comfortable in a stimulating environment.

As Pet Care Professionals, we see many behavioral issues. Problems we are seeing in today’s dogs:

  • Fear
  • Anxiety
  • Phobias
  • Stranger Danger
  • Fear of Handling
  • Fear of New Places
  • Crate busting
  • & More

Add problems like:

  • Being taken away from mom too early
  • Inexperience in raising a puppy
  • Busy households
  • Inconsistent schedules/routines/training
  • Pet owners working long hours
  • Being passes from home to home

The busier that pet owners get, the more that small problems will appear. Those small problems turn into big problems. Then more problems appear…and the behaviors get WORSE, instead of better!

Our PUPPIES learn:

  • Eye contact & Engagement
  • Focus & Patience
  • Crate Tolerance
  • Learning to be calm
  • House training
  • Mock Vet Exams
  • Restraints and Body handling
  • Collar handling & Leash Manners
  • Grooming handling & restraint (nail clipping, ears, baths, blow dry)
  • Basic obedience – SIT, WAIT, BACK, LEAVE-IT, OFF, COME & name recognition
  • To avoid “stranger danger” by meeting as many new people as possible
  • To avoid “noise phobias” by having FUN while listening to noises such as babies crying, loud trucks, fireworks, gunshots, kids screaming, vacuums, & dogs barking. We’ve got them all!
  • Dog-to-dog social skills – with our own “Puppy Ambassador Dogs” ALL of this is accomplished while preserving the safest environment possible, since the vaccination series is not yet complete.

GOOD NEWS! While we can’t fix everything that a puppy and owner might encounter, in our 12 week program (Phase 1 & 2) we sure can accomplish a lot!
