Puppy Learning Programs:
Puppies start learning about how to act in the big world before they even open their eyes, as they navigate to their mom to nurse. As early as 2 weeks old, breeders should be ensuring that the pups are handled by different family members. As puppy grows, and his eyes open, he begins to interact with his siblings and others. This is when the critical social imprinting age truly begins, and it is important that breeders give the pups plenty of human interaction at this time, as puppy will bond with anything he is exposed to in a positive way at this age, and will fear things that he doesn’t get exposed to in a positive way. By the time you adopt your pup, he will have a basic idea of how to interact with other puppies and humans. You have until he is 16 weeks to build bonds and positive associations with everything in the environment.
This is where we come in: Go Dog Go! has several unique and specially designed programs to help your puppy learn about the world in a safe, controlled environment, while you learn about everything puppy will need to grow up to be the best family dog you ever had. Whether you choose group puppy classes, or a private training option you can be assured that the classes have been professionally designed to grow developing puppies into amazing adult dogs. These classes are designed for vaccinated puppies between 8 weeks old and 16 weeks old.
