Puppy Head Start is for puppies that are between the ages of 9 to 16 weeks at the start of class. This class is an introduction to puppy raising and management. Lessons taught included polite greeting behavior, walking on leash without pulling, the emergency down (drop), leaving things alone when told to, discussions on mouthing, house-training, safe socialization, and other subjects of importance to puppy owners. Each class lasted approximately an hour, including supervised playtime.
Hooch got a Philadelphia Eagles Jersey, Eagles tug-toy, and a foot ball for graduation gifts 🙂
Hooch’s next class: “Terrible Teens!” This class is for adolescent pups from 17 weeks to 12 months. This class will center on basic obedience, with a primary focus on how to utilize these exercises to produce a well-mannered pup. Discussions in class will center on exploring our dogs’ behaviors, and solutions to the problems commonly seen at this developmental stage.
