Puppy Preschool & Basics

Puppy Pre-School for puppies 8 to 20 weeks old, one session each week for four weeks.

Puppy training begins the moment you bring your new puppy home. Our puppy pre-school program was established to assist you in raising a well-mannered family pet. At Excel K-9 Companions we want to teach new puppy owners how they can influence and shape the behavior of their growing puppy.

We will cover:
• Housebreaking / Potti Training
• Crate Training
• Feeding
• General Care for your puppy

Whether or not you are enrolled in formal training, you are still directing behavior and establishing patterns in your dog’s life. By not teaching or not setting limits your puppy understands, you are contributing to future negative behavior patterns. Puppy pre-school is designed to teach owners to better understand their puppy’s needs, establish effective communication, curb behavior problems, and to show owners how to properly socialize their new puppy.

Our puppy pre-school program places a heavy emphasis on setting limits that your puppy can understand and on proper socialization to assist your puppy in the transition into a domesticated lifestyle. It is the first 16 weeks of a puppy’s life that is most critical. It is in this period that most puppies can develop up to 90 percent of their attitudes toward people, other animals, and their environment. Our program is also designed for each individual puppy and allows you, the one-on-one opportunity to ask our professional trainers questions that apply specifically to your puppy.
All puppies must be in good health and current on all vaccinations. Owners are required to submit valid vaccination records from a licensed veterinarian prior to their puppy consultation. Upon completion of our pre-school program, your puppy will be better prepared to participate in formal obedience training.
