Puppy Classes - Puppy Life Skills!

Have you recently welcomed a new puppy into your home? Join the dog trainers at Paw Prints for Puppy Life Skills, a 4-week course to teach your puppy how to be a good boy or girl!

In addition to the training and socialization for your puppy, this course includes a welcome gift bag (full of goodies from local pet lovers), lots of resources, product demonstrations and a graduation present to mark your good dog’s milestone!

To participate, your puppy must be between 10 and 16 weeks old and had its first set of vaccines.


To ensure the health and safety of participants and staff, the following precautions have been put in place for all upcoming classes:

    • Outdoor classes - Classes will be held in the daycare’s fenced play area and are now weather dependent. Make up classes will be provided.
    • Small class sizes - A maximum of 4 puppies will be admitted into each class
    • Two people per dog - Two people may attend class with their puppy. We want the whole family involved and we’ll send you resources so you can all work together.
    • Masks encouraged - While there is enough space to allow for distancing, puppies don’t always comply!

Our training can help your dog:

  • Come when called
  • Walk with a loose leash
  • Stay
  • Get used to scary things
  • Not nibble, chew or “mouth”
  • Not jump
  • Potty training
  • Avoid guarding behaviours

 Our training can help you:

  • Better understand your dog’s behaviour
  • Provide mental enrichment for your dog
  • Leave your puppy alone, safely, for periods of time
