Text Box: Teenage puppy class (for pups between 5 and 12 months) helps owners establish loving relationships—before puppies become juvenile delinquents!

Puppy class can have a powerful effect on your dog’s future behavior. GoldStar Dog Training helps pups make friends with several other puppies, get acquainted with new people and enjoy interesting objects and activities. They learn good manners as well as obedience.
Foundation behaviors include:
Socialize properly with other dogs and people.
Sensible house training
Appropriate use of mouth
Accepting Handling
Sit, down, stay, walking on a loose leash, coming when called.
Begin training right away. Puppies can learn so much while they are young and eager to enjoy discovering new things. Puppies may begin class when they’re between 2 and 5 months old. Kindergarten will help you teach your puppy in a gentle, pleasurable way. For everyone’s safety, classes are conducted in private buildings and grounds.
