ADOLESCENT PUPPY class is for dogs 15 weeks to 6 months at start of class. This class will give your puppy an opportunity to continue valuable socialization while at the same time providing you with the needed support and knowledge to teach your puppy the behaviors they need to live peaceably in your home. Whether your puppy has already been through Puppy Kindergarten or has reached the age of 15 weeks without having attended Kindergarten, this class will enable you to improve your pup's skills such as:

  • Walking politely on a leash
  • Coming when called
  • Brief sits, downs, and stays
  • Games to help your pup absolutely love their crate
  • And other lessons

No prior class is needed to attend Adolescent Puppy Kindergarten.

This class meets once a week for four weeks. Participants will be required to watch the orientation video prior to coming to the first class via the link below

For any issues regarding the orientation video, please contact or call 515-473-9131. 

Does your dog consistently react strongly to humans or other dogs?

Reactive dogs have a hard time focusing on their owner during the class making it hard for them to learn and retain the information they are being taught. If you are unsure if your dog will be successful in a group training class, a Drop-In training class is a great way to see if your dog is able to learn in the busy environment our training center provides.

If you have any concerns about the behaviors your dog displays, please email or call (515) 473-9131.

This class is $125. Fees for classes are subject to change and are non-refundable.
