Puppy Group Class

 

 

 

We all love a cute, innocent, and fluffy puppy! But now you've got them home and UH-OH they're not so innocent anymore! We can help tame the "shark teeth" and teach your puppy how to potty outside! Our programs set your puppy up for success for future events like vet visits, groomer visits, park play dates, social visits, and MORE! For the sake of your shoes, and other items at risk of being eaten by your puppy, don't miss out on these programs! Please give us a call for pricing!
