Muddy Paws Dog Training Presents:
Puppy Play and Learn
Socialization & basic manners for puppies age 8-20 weeks
Puppy classes are a great way to get a jump-start on training your puppy to become a dog you enjoy living with. The first and foremost goal of puppy classes is to get together puppies of a similar age for play and socialization. Play is the primary way that puppies learn to problem-solve and trouble-shoot. While the puppies are playing, we spend time covering basic training, including problem prevention. This is a drop in class, so you can get started right away!
Cost: $50 for SPCA of TC alum and volunteers/ $65 general public, for five classes. If you cannot attend all five classes, you may pay for each class individually, $15 per class. Cash, checks, and credit cards now accepted.
