JUVENILE PUPPY PROGRAM – for dogs over 6 months of age
$150 for 5 lessons (the first lesson is a juvenile puppy free lesson – meaning you do not bring your juvenile puppy to the first lesson)
At the end of the 5 lessons your juvenile puppy will have a Juvenile Puppy Graduation and you and your puppy will receive a puppy graduation gift and a graduation certificate for completing my Juvenile Puppy Program.
ABOUT THE JUVENILE PUPPY PROGRAM
This program provides you with the support to move forward with further training to our Adult Companion Dog Program. My emphasis at all times is on positive reinforcement training.
At the juvenile puppy free lesson I will talk about the program structure and how we like to individualise the programs to suit the individual dogs within a class situation. I will also explain the importance of vaccinations, preventative flea and worm treatment, feeding and grooming and adulthood.
