Puppyhood is the most crucial developmental stage in a dog's life. During the first few months puppies learn to accept and enjoy the company of other dogs and people. They need to be exposed to all kinds of stimuli inside and outside of your home. They have a willingness to please and are easily taught basic behaviors. Starting training this young sets your puppy up for a lifetime of successes by developing good habits and preventing unwanted behaviors at an early age.
Give your puppy the best possible start with MuttSchool's puppy group classes. Our age-appropriate curriculums have been designed to address your puppy's specific needs at two developmental stages: Puppy Preschool is for puppies 8-15 weeks old and Juvenile Jumpstart is for puppies 15 weeks to 6 months old. What's more, you won't have to wait long to get started in our classes—MuttSchool welcomes puppies just ten days after their first round of vaccines!

Veterinarians specializing in behavior recommend that owners take advantage of every safe opportunity to expose young puppies to the great variety of stimuli that they will experience in their lives. Enrolling in puppy classes prior to three months of age can be an excellent means of improving training, strengthening the human-animal bond, and socializing puppies in an environment where risk of illness can be minimized."
