Yappy Hour: Puppy Socialization – Acton Road

Recurring event see all

August 13, 2019 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

Modeled after veterinary behaviorist Dr. Ian Dunbar’s work and specifically designed for puppies ages 7-­12 weeks old, this comprehensive four week course is a great way to expose your new pet to novel sounds, sights, and textures. Also included in the course work is body handling and socialization with strangers, children, and other pups under the guidance of a skilled instructor, plus instruction on potty training and nipping. The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior has issued a position statement that the risks of under­-socialization greatly outweigh the risks of exposure to other pups. Yappy Hour is designed as a revolving course so that puppies can join any week, maximizing the advantages of early intervention during crucial learning periods. Each week features supervised off­-leash play! This meets on Tuesdays from 6:30-7:30 pm at Altadena Valley Animal Clinic. $125 for four weeks.
