Focus on Puppies

Training: Focus on Puppies
Building a lifelong bond with your new best friend. We use progressive reinforcement training methods in comfortable, pet friendly environments with an emphasis on fun and learning.

Our puppy program focuses on socialization and how to help you and your puppy to develop and reinforce healthy, desirable behaviours.

Progressive Reinforcement Training

Progressive reinforcement training essentially means teaching animals by rewarding desired behaviours and excluding the intentional use of physical or psychological intimidations.

How old should my puppy be to attend ‘Focus on Puppies’ sessions?

Vaccinated puppies between the ages of 9 and 20 weeks of age are ideal candidates for the ‘Focus on Puppies’ program.

Pricing

The ‘Focus on Puppies’ program offers four sessions for $86.96 plus HST. We welcome your participation in up to two additional complimentary sessions if more socialization and/or owner support is needed.

When do the classes start?

Continuous Enrollment means that you can start anytime and not miss that critical window of time when your puppy is most open to socialization.

Contact us for dates, times and locations.
