A puppy’s socialization period lasts from approximately 7 to 16 weeks of age. During this time, a puppy develops the seek-avoidance blueprint she will use for the rest of her life when encountering novel items. Since fear is the underlying emotion for most forms of aggression in dogs, this class is designed to expose your pup to as many environmental factors as possible in a safe and fun way. By forming a strong association with novelties and good stuff (i.e. play, treats, & affection) during this critical period, you are helping to insure your puppy will grow up to be a more confident and easy-going dog. This class also focuses on creating a strong foundation of manners and training to help prevent those unwanted behaviors in the future.
