Research tells us that we have a short window at the beginning of a dog’s life (from ~3 to ~18 weeks, depending on the individual & breed), during which we can really influence how your pup sees & copes with the world.
Careful teaching & exposure to a variety of stimuli in a supportive environment will create the foundations for a ready-for-anything adult.
Conversely, the wrong puppy class experience, at this crucial time of life, can cause fear, reactivity & all manner of behavioural problems that can impact welfare, & take a lifetime to sort out... "Behavior problems are the biggest threat to the human-animal bond, and the number-one reason dogs are relinquished." Debbie Martin (KPA faculty member, & author of the Puppy Start Right book & course) - the key is to get them early - so let's gets started!
