Training Support Provided by Positive Paws Pet Services

2 Types of Dog Training is offered by Positive Paws Pet Services

PUPPY START RIGHT PRESCHOOL

WHEN:  Every Monday from 5:00-6:00 pm at the Humane Society of Charles County Humane Education Room.

ABOUT THE CLASS:  Puppy Start Right Preschool is a puppy socialization and basic training course for puppies in the critical socialization period (7-16 weeks of age). Puppy parents attend an online orientation followed by four 1-hour in-person classes with other puppies and families. Classes are held once per week and provide opportunities for puppies to safely explore, socialize, and be exposed to new things. A properly socialized and trained puppy is polite, less likely to have behavior disorders including fear and anxiety, and more likely to be a companion – rather than a nuisance.
​​
Puppy Start Right Preschool requires active participation in class and at home. Your puppy will learn from YOU, which will create trust in YOU, and allow YOU and YOUR puppy to bond.
​​
Group classes are limited to 6 puppies. Registration costs $135 and includes: One hour online orientation, 4 one hour in-person classes, Puppy Start Right book, Puppy Start Right video package, treat pouch, and clicker. Enrollment is rolling so you can register and get started anytime! You must register one week in advance of your first in-person class to allow adequate time to complete orientation and the vet health certificate.
