Puppy Pointers

Adequately socializing puppies during the critical period is the most effective measure to reduce the chance of your dog developing fear-related behaviors as an adult. Live virtual group modules are a cost-effective, flexible option to help your puppy grow up to be a friendly, confident dog.
