What is Puppy Preschool?

Puppy Preschool is designed to take advantage of the fact that puppies between 6 to 16 weeks of age learn responses and retain experiences better than any other time. Through various positive reinforcement methods, the Puppy Preschool program is designed to build your puppy’s confidence and establish a strong foundation for future training. By implementing these techniques, you will help your puppy understand “house rules” that are to be followed.


What Will Your Puppy Learn?

In five lessons, the course covers management, training, and socialization techniques that will help you build a productive and trusting relationship with your puppy. You will learn how to apply these techniques to prevent and address nuisance puppy behaviors. The program will culminate with the AKC S.T.A.R. puppy test.
