Puppy Preschool

Phoenix is ready for Puppy Preschool
“Ready for school!”

What is Puppy Preschool?

Puppy Preschool takes 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.


What Will Your Puppy Learn?

Your puppy will be introduced to essential obedience commands. Techniques used in teaching these commands will be consistent with their development stage. Then those commands will be applied to prevent and address nuisance puppy behaviors. The program will culminate with the AKC S.T.A.R. puppy test.
