We don’t just love dogs, we know dogs!

Early puppyhood is a critical time for socialization and learning. Research shows that a dog’s experience in the first 12 weeks of life has the most significant impact on their adult personality and wellbeing. Maximizing training opportunities and positive experiences during this time helps ensure a confident, well-socialized dog.

Barkley’s Training School is based on the latest research and scientific understanding of dog behavior to enhance the bond between you and your dog. We don’t just love dogs, we know dogs! Let our knowledge and 20+ years of experience help guide you and your dog through this critical time.

Barkley’s Puppy Preschool

Puppies 7 to 18 weeks of age
CPDT Certified Trainer: Abby Seay

Next class session begins Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 11am
6-week course, 1 hr/week
$199 per session, a 5% discount for current day care clients

This course uses group play to help your puppy become social with people and other dogs, while reducing fear development in their new world. Traditional behaviors like “sit” and “stay” are touched on, but the primary emphasis is on social skills and a good recall. Because Barkley believes in the power of the “click,” we will teach pet parents clicker training. This is a 6-week course for puppies and their families (kids included!).

Be sure to check out our Puppy Power Hour, held on Saturdays!
