Kindergarten Puppy Training

Puppies must be between 10 to 14 weeks at start of class!

Get your new puppy friend started right! Puppies need to be socialized with other dogs and lots of different humans. Early socialization helps prevent many future behavior problems from occurring and gets your puppy started on the path to being an enjoyable companion that is welcome anywhere.

This four week session focuses on socialization of your puppy. The classes consist of controlled social interactions, exposure to new situations, basic puppy manners and problem prevention techniques.

There will be a socialization exercise, exposure to challenging situations (wheeled vehicles, obstacles, and scent work) and a handling or training exercise each week.


Puppies must be between 10 to 18 weeks of age to participate in class and have started their vaccination series by a veterinarian at least 10 days prior to starting classes.  Vaccination records are required at first class meeting.


Classes are held at the Canine Academy, 13655 San Antonio Rd., Atascadero. Please contact Eileen at with any questions.
