Puppy preschool is for puppies 8 – 12 weeks old.
Puppy Preschool is a socialization experience for puppies 8-12 weeks old. Puppies are allowed to interact off leash with a variety of other puppies and people, while we discuss the importance of this critical developmental and socialization period. In addition, we will talk about the challenges new puppy owners face when dealing with play biting, as well as crate and potty training. You don’t want to miss out on this important first step in your puppy’s life-long learning career, so register online today!
Between 9 – 11 weeks of age is a very sensitive period for puppies.
