Puppy Social Drop In
It's Happy Hour for your Puppy!
Who is it for:
What is all about:
- Puppies 9 - 18 weeks of age who are current on vaccinations and have lived in your home for a minimum of two weeks before attending
Why are we offering this:
- There will be supervised and structured play time for the puppies, where your puppy will learn to behave appropriately with other
dogs and people
- Your puppy will begin to learn to pay attention to you when necessary despite the distracting environment
- Puppy appropriate equipment will be set up for your use and you will be taught how to use it for further enrichment, training and
fun for your puppy
- You will learn what socialization is and how to ensure it is a positive process for your puppy
- How to deal with new people, meeting new dogs, grooming, recalls, handling etc will also be touched upon
Where does this take place:
- The critical stage of puppy development is between 3 - 12 weeks of age. From 12 - 16 weeks your puppy is still in an important
stage where learning new things and meeting new dogs and people of all kinds in a positive way will have the most impact in the
shortest amount of time. We take advantage of this time.
- Begin your puppy training while you are waiting for your class to start.
- You can continue to attend drop in social concurrently with your Puppy Headstart class, they complement each other.
- You can start right away, usually within days.
- In the fully enclosed rubber ring at Red Barn Event Centre where we have access to fun puppy equipment.
