Puppy Social (ongoing, pay per visit)   

I have found it more effective to seperate training from socialization.  This space is a great fun space to socialize your dog.  If you would like to get learn about manners and leadership, one-on-one training will be much more effective.  A combination of both is best.

Socialize your dog in a safe and controlled environment outdoors. 

I started this group after experiencing a rise of aggression and nervousness cases after Covid – 19 restrictions came into place in March 2020.  Such issues can so easily be prevented by exposing our puppies to a variety of dogs at a young age so they can begin to understand social cues from other dogs and how to respond to them. 

Allow your dog to socialize safely with other dogs in a controlled and supervised environment.  Learn how to better understand their social cues and play and ask any training questions.

It is important for our dogs to learn how to interact with other dogs at a young age and equally important that as owners we understand their cues.  Absence of early socialization can lead to dog on dog aggression or extreme nervousness in later life.  This is NOT about creating a perfect experience for your dog, it is about your dog learning to be tolerate of all types of dogs. 

This class is outdoors and very casual. The main objective is to provide exposure to our puppies while they go through a very important learning stage.  Opportunities to ask training questions are available as I circulate the group.
