Specifically designed for puppies ages 8­ to 12 weeks old, this comprehensive four-week course is a great way to expose your new pet to novel sounds, sights, and textures.

This class is modeled after veterinary behaviorist Dr. Ian Dunbar’s work. Also included in the coursework is body handling and socialization with strangers and other pups under the guidance of a skilled instructor. 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 to maximize the advantages of early intervention during crucial learning periods.
