Puppy Preschool

Puppy Preschool $99.95


Puppy Preschool is the perfect start for puppies that are less than 16 weeks of age. This is a critical stage of development because a puppy’s body and brain is developing so rapidly. Doing things correctly early in life will help prevent unwanted behavior from turning into serious problems later on.

This puppy training course will help you to effectively guide your new pup through things like, crate training, housebreaking and learning to walk on a leash. You will learn how to intervene in puppy play biting, limit nuisance barking, destructive chewing and other unwanted behaviors. Puppy preschool will teach you how to start a grooming routine so your pup learns to tolerate being brushed, bathed and having nails trimmed before they become harder to manage. You’ll also discover the best types of toys to give your puppy and fun games to play that encourage good manners and obedience.

This course will teach you the best way to expose your puppy to new situations, including other dogs. Positive exposure helps your young pup grow into a well-socialized and well-mannered part of the community. Don’t wait and until your puppy starts developing bad habits.

That’s My Dog! puppy preschool is a combination of virtual learning and in person puppy- socials.

Part One is a virtual platform. Here you will find videos with short, easy to understand training information critical to getting started correctly with your new pup! Videos cover topics like potty training, play-biting, leash walking, basic training, good social skills and so much more! Each video can be viewed multiple times which makes it easy to learn the information and focus on the techniques outside of a noisy, often hectic group class environment.


Part Two are the puppy socials. These are in person classes held in Dubuque, Iowa on Monday evenings at 6:00 PM. The puppy socials are an opportunity to practice the material in the video tutorials while under the guidance of a trainer. Plus, the socials provide much needed early social exposure to a variety of other people and puppies.


**Puppy Social is an OPTIONAL add to the Preschool. Admission is a one time $40.00 fee. Puppies may attend social until they reach 16 weeks of age. Participants in the social must also be enrolled in Part One (virtual platform) so they understand and can follow along with the topics being reviewed during the Monday night social classes.

Puppy preschool is a must for these young dogs and one of the best ways to establish a relationship that can head off future behavior problems.
