Our Puppy Raising Philosophy

Puppyhood is the most important time in your dog's life. She's learning more about herself, people, other dogs and the world outside than she ever will again. Your puppy will never again be so open to outside influence. Early intervention can nip many behavior problems in the bud and make the difference between a problem dog and a beloved companion.

Our puppy program is far more than a miniature version of an adult obedience class; it's your chance to help your puppy grow into the dog you'll want to live with.

Give your puppy the best possible start in life! Early socialization will help you to grow your puppy into a dog who'll be a pleasure to live with.

When you enroll in Puppy Start Right Preschool, you're making the choice to:

  • prevent fearful or aggressive behavior later in life
  • socialize your puppy under the supervision of an expert trainer
  • learn basic obedience including sit, come, walking on a loose leash
  • receive guidance on potty training, jumping, barking and puppy biting
  • make vet visits and grooming easy
  • PREVENT behavior problems before they start
  • raise a puppy you'll have for a lifetime.

For your puppy's safety, classes take place in a properly sanitized veterinary office. Puppies must have received their first round of vaccinations before class but are not required to have completed the entire booster series. Read the ASVAB's position paper on the importance of early socialization for more information.
