Should your puppy attend classes before they've

completed their vaccinations?

The first several months of a puppy's life are a critical period for learning about the world. The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior states that, "puppies can start socialization classes as early as 7-8 weeks of age,"

and that "...it should be the standard of care for puppies to receive socialization before they are fully vaccinated." 

 

We require that your puppy receive at least the first round of their parvo vaccine or a titer before their first class and that they receive their rabies vaccine/titer at the age recommended by their veterinarian. 

 

Read the AVSAB position statement below and discuss what's best

for your puppy with your veterinarian.

Canine Good Citizen (CGC)

$225 for six week course

(testing and certificate application are optional and will be additional fees)

Prerequisites: Puppy or Adult Good Manners

The Canine Good Citizen title is often prized among pet parents, breeders, and therapy dog handlers. Unfortunately, the test only requires a dog be judged in one situation, in one place, at one time. This class is a practical learning and application class. We'll cover every skill on the CGC test, but we'll be applying them to real situations. Weather permitting, we'll even be going on a field trip! Note: This class does not include the CGC test or the AKC application fee. You may take this course and test in another location, if you desire.

Behaviors covered: For a list of the CGC requirements, click here.
