Early socialization is imperative for puppies before they turn 16 weeks. This is during their early brain growth period and proper socialization will help you avoid future fears and aggression!

Behavioral problems caused by the lack of socialization
done during the ages of 7 weeks to 16 weeks
is the
#1 killer of dogs!!

*Puppies must have had at least two rounds of booster shots at least 10 days before class start date.

American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior has passed a position paper stating that early socialization (first 3 months) is critical. Studies show that more dogs are put down or surrendered to shelters due to behavioral problems caused by lack of socialization at the critical ages of 7 weeks to 16 weeks than any type of ilness.
