Puppy Academy

Six Week Class

Ages: 4-8 Months

The Puppy Academy classes are a great follow-up to our puppy socialization sessions. In this six week class, younger dogs will grow and learn the basics of positive reinforcement training with you. Instruction will also cover basic dog safety principles, smart management techniques, and positive relationship-building activities. The Puppy Academy classes are recommended for pups from four to eight months. As with all Barx Parx group classes, we find the greatest success with small groups so this class is limited to three dogs.
