Puppy Socialization Classes at Selten Ruhe Kennels
The most important thing you can do for your dog is to enroll them in a puppy socialization class.
**Puppy socialization Class starting Thursday June 29, 2017 at 6:30pm. (no class July 6th)
Getting your puppy around a variety of people, animals, sounds, sights, textures and places is critical to their ability to become stable, happy adults.
Too many puppy classes are more about basic obedience than puppy socialization and desensitization, we do not introduce a lot of commands during this socialization course. We will provide you and your puppy an environment to play safely with other puppies, meet people, experience many different sights, smells, sounds and textures to climb on, chew on and explore. We will play games that will encourage trust and bonding between you and your puppy.
Selten Ruhe Kennel’s puppy socialization class also spends time teaching you how to read your puppy’s body language and how to rear a very stable dog.
Puppies have a Sensitive period, which is the optimum time for puppy socializition and exposing your puppy to a variety of environmental experiences, this period ends around 14 - 16 weeks of age. Read this article by AVSAB. Do not wait until after your puppy has received their full set of shots to begin proper socialization.
You must bring a 6' leash (no flexi leads), soft treats your puppy enjoys, and a favorite toy (that does not make noise) to every class.
Classes are 45 minutes long and run for 6 weeks.
You must preregister for class by calling 920-210-4243 or emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
