Puppy Kindergarden

Between the ages of 2 and 6 months there is an opportunity to greatly influence a puppy’s future behavior and social interaction. During this time, puppies need positive exposure to all things they are likely to encounter as adults. Puppy kindergarten is a perfect setting for puppies to learn proper socialization and appropriate behavior while they are most impressionable.
