Why Attend Puppy Classes?

Have you ever wondered what the world looks like through your puppy’s eyes? Our puppy training and socialization classes will help your puppy grow up to be a confident, well-adjusted adult dog!

Puppy Social

Your puppy will get 45 minutes of supervised fun with other puppies 8-18 weeks old in a clean environment. Puppy socials teach impressionable, young pups valuable play skills and bite inhibition — plus, they couldn’t be cuter to watch!

Don’t forget to bring delicious, high value treats. They’re essential to help your puppy build positive experiences with new place, new dogs, and new people.

These socials are for puppies 8-18 weeks old.

Puppy Manners

Come and learn how your puppy thinks, along with crucial foundational skills (including potty training, not jumping on people, the importance of the crate, and basic obedience!) and how to create a good routine for your pup so that you can integrate the perfect puppy into your home!

These classes are for puppies 8-16 weeks old.

Before your first class (or even before signing up), please view our training policies. These policies are design not only for your and your pet’s safety, but to ensure classes run smoothly and effectively. Remember, both for shelter animals and public classes, all of Joybound’s dog training is done via positive reinforcement methods.
