Why is Puppy Start Right Preschool so important?
- ALL puppies need puppy socialization! The ideal age to enroll is 8-15 weeks of age!
- The best time to start is when your sweet perfect puppy is still behaving perfectly!
- There is NO advantage to waiting! The window of socialization begins to close at 12 weeks of age!
- It is one of THE MOST IMPORTANT things you can do to ensure your puppy's future.
- Socialization is not something that can be done at home or alone! Learn what it IS and what it ISN'T.
- Positive exposure to many new things can protect your puppy against future behavioral issues.
- Socialization is necessary for your puppy's ability to cope as an adult dog and, without it, can lead to lifelong deficits.
In Puppy Start Right Preschool you will learn to:
- Use positive reinforcement training with your puppy.
- Prevent and manage undesired puppy behaviors.
- Ensure that socialization experiences are positive for your pup.
