Puppy Start Right Preschool
Pleasant Valley Veterinary Clinic now offers Puppy Start Right Preschool, a course that can prepare your puppy for a lifetime at your side!
Just like preschool for your children, early puppyhood is a critical time for socialization and learning. The best time to start socializing your puppy is between 7 and 12 weeks of age. Experiences during this time set the stage for the rest of your puppy’s life. Our classes provide you with the necessary knowledge and experiences to help your puppy develop into a wonderful companion.
Orientation is required prior to taking your first class to ensure this is the right course for you and your puppy. After orientation, there is an hour long class once a week for 4 weeks. Weekly homework assignments, including reading and/or training exercises are given each week throughout the course. Reading and practicing at home are necessary to get the most out of this course.
With a little work and a lot of fun, you and your puppy will build the foundation for a lifelong friendship.
The Puppy Start Right Preschool Instructor, Michelle Updegrove has been a Certified Veterinary Technician for over a decade and has completed the Karen Pryor Academy program.
