It's A Dog's World Training

Preschool ( puppies 8 to 14 weeks)

 All students MUST take the Puppy Preschool Orientation before starting their first Preschool class. 

For puppies 8-14 weeks old: Preschool is everything puppy! During the brief period prior to 20 weeks of age an average puppy will learn more than in the remainder of its life. They form lasting emotional and cognitive perspectives of their environment.  Preschool is a combination of socialization, puppy problem solving and preventing behavior problems. Your pup will also learn appropriate play styles and interact with novel objects! Puppies can start as early as 8 weeks and as late as 14 weeks, but the sooner the better! This is a revolving class. Join any week just choose your start date at check out. Puppies must start no later 14 weeks. This is not an obedience class. Its is highly recommended taking Manners foundation at the same time (on different days) or really shortly after. 

Maximum 8 puppies per class. Tuition for 4 weeks $120.

How to prepare for class

Breeders records should be converted at your vets office especially for puppies that have not completed their series.

Classes must be paid for to reserve your spot.

Group classes are NOT appropriate for dogs that are fearful,  bark at other dogs or  are overexcited by them. 

Classes are non-refundable 1 week before class begins. Credit can be transferred to another class or private lessons. Classes are non-transferable 3 business days before class starts.

We want a healthy and productive learning environment for all. If your instructor feels for any reason that class is not a good fit for you or your dog, class payment will be transferred to use towards private lessons or a more suitable class. 

Preschool:  Puppies are time sensitive therefore there are NO makeups for this class. You may schedule a discounted private lesson as a “makeup” This is $30 for a half hour

Orientation:  No call no shows will forfeit tuition and have to pay to take the class again.
