This class teaches basic obedience and socialization skills to help you and your puppy establish good habits early.

About this event

Puppies must have 2 sets of vaccinations and be between 3-6 months of age by class start.

This 6-week class also covers basic behaviours such as: sit, down, come, stay, recall, and loose leash walking. It also covers the basics of socialization, which is the process of acclimatizing your puppy to as many people, dogs, and objects as possible. Puppies spend some of the hour off leash, as they learn proper interactions and become well-socialized to the world.

*Please note: Classes do not run on holiday weekends. Any classes that overlap with such a weekend will be extended by one week*
