Welcome to the world of puppies! If you have a new puppy or are thinking about getting one, you may have heard of Puppy School.  But maybe you are unsure why puppy school is important and why it matters who trains your new pup.

Puppy School is a training program designed for puppies aged between 8 and 16 weeks. It is a safe and fun way for puppies to socialize with other dogs and people, learn basic obedience commands, and build confidence in new environments. Puppy School is not only a training program but also a socialization program that exposes puppies to new experiences, sounds, smells, and environments that they will encounter in their lives.

Unfortunately, not all puppy classes are created equal. It is crucial to ensure that all training is delivered consistently to avoid any confusion for your puppy. Inconsistent training methods may result in undesirable behavior and sadly, this is a common reason why people choose to rehome their dogs. To prevent this, early intervention with the correct training techniques from qualified trainers is vitally important.
