Puppy Teen

4-week program

Suitable for dogs aged 4 to 12 months

Teenage puppies have lots of big feelings, and they don’t always make great choices if left to decide on their own.

In the Puppy Teen program we will focus on foundation skills to help you navigate this time with your growing dog. This includes recall strategies for coming when called, working with distractions and frustration, settling on cue, grooming and husbandry. We will discuss how to navigate new challenges that may pop up like counter surfing, demand barking, and pulling on the leash. There will also be a play element to the class to allow for continued socialization and development of play skills.
