Puppy K Training Classes - Next session begins March 8th

The brain of a puppy is fully developed at seven weeks of age. Pups are capable of learning, but must be handled carefully and instructed properly. Puppy Kindergarten is the answer to teaching your puppy correctly from the beginning.

Classes are designed for the very young puppy and are taught by Jan Bramhall, with other experienced instructors and assistants. Puppy kindergarten will help you to successfully socialize, raise, and train your new Golden Retriever puppy.

Classes are held once a week for six weeks for puppies between 8 weeks and 5 months of age. Fee: $130.
