Puppies

Puppy Socialization

A critical period of canine development is between 8 and 16 weeks of age. In this time period, training and socialization will have a major impact on your dog's future disposition. Paw N Claws Academy allows you to set your pup up to succeed in life so that he will grow into a well behaved, well socialized dog.

We cover socialization with people and other animals, feeding and housetraining tips, confidence building exercises, problem prevention, and laying the foundation for more sophisticated behaviors. In this fun and social class, we teach you the quickest way to establish a bond with your dog so that the two of you can become an effective training team.

Length: 4 weeks
