ADOLESCENT SOCIALIZATION CLASSES

Class Description

The Adolescent Socialization class is for puppies between the ages of 4 and 9 months that either missed the Puppy Socialization class or they need additional socialization, due to continued fearful behavior. 

Why Adolescent Socialization is Important

Socialization is the positive exposure to the world to desensitize and create positive associations with everything we expect a dog to be exposed to throughout its life. Dogs go through two socialization periods in their life, from birth to 12 weeks old, and sometime between 6 and 14 months of age. The first socialization period is the most critical. However, if socialization stops after the first socialization period, dogs can “de-socialize” and become fearful, and thus, more likely to exhibit aggression. Therefore, it is extremely important to socialize a dog until they are two years old.

Class Dates and Times

Adolescent Socialization classes are held on the following days and times:

  • Sundays 10:30 - 11:30 am
  • Mondays 8:00 - 9:00 pm
  • Thursdays 8:00 - 9:00 pm


Classes are open enrollment, meaning dogs can start anytime!


Cost is $150 for six sessions

Required Vaccinations

Getting Started

Class is open enrollment, so puppies can start anytime after submitting vaccination records!  Vaccination records can be brought to the first class.  There is no prerequisite for this course. 


You can start on any of the above listed days & times.  You can use your six sessions on any or all of the available class times.  You can mix and match.

   

Students are permitted to attend Sundays and Tuesdays, but are limited to a total of six class sessions per package.


Bring a hungry puppy, small tasty treats, a 4-6 foot leash (no retractable leashes) and vaccination records.
