Wee WiggleButts 8-18 weeks old will benefit most from early socialization in a fun, safe, and stimulating environment. Humans will learn the fundamental responsibilities of puppy parenting, how to teach basic manners, and how to handle common puppy problems like housetraining, barking, jumping, biting, etc.
Puppies must receive a clean bill of health from a veterinarian in order to participate. Your puppy:
- must have received at least two (2) sets of "puppy shots" (DAP)
- must have had a negative stool check or received appropriate treatment from the veterinarian
- must be free of external parasites (mites. fleas, etc.) at all times.
Vaccination against Bordetella is recommended but not required. Rabies vaccination is not required to begin Kindergarten. Your veterinarian will give the vaccine when your pup reaches the appropriate age. You will need to have your veterinarian fill out and sign the Health Certification form or bring copies of receipts from your vet showing appropriate information. Puppies without proper health certification will NOT be admitted to class. No exceptions.
Puppy Kindergarten meets once a week for 6 weeks. Each class is 45 minutes. There are 8 spaces available in each session. New sessions begin every few weeks so that no puppy has to wait too long to enroll. It is important to enroll in Puppy Kindergarten as soon as possible as this is an important stage in your pup's life and it cannot be made up later. Puppy classes tend to fill up quickly so check the schedule for current class dates and times.
If your puppy meets the requirements for Kindergarten you can register by mail. Please print and fill out the registration form and send it in with the registration fee. Health Certification can be mailed with your registration or brought to the first class. Your registration form and fees need to be received to guarantee your place. We cannot hold a space for you without your registration and payment.
This class is available for WiggleButts who are up to 12 months old and have successfully completed Puppy Kindergarten. Puppy 2 picks up where Kindergarten ends. Handlers will discover a new and powerful training tool, incorporate it into basic manners training, and use it to teach more difficult skills like targeting, nice leash walking, and stay. Humans will also learn strategies and techniques for combating doggie behavior problems. Puppies will play exciting training games and continue socialization with other dogs and people.
Puppy 2 meets once a week for 6 weeks. Each class is 60 minutes. Each session is limited to 6 spaces. Check the schedule for class dates and times.
If your puppy meets the requirements for Puppy 2 you can register by mail. Please print and fill out the registration form and send it in with the registration fee. If you have taken classes at WiggleButts in the last 6 months you need only provide updated health information (rabies vaccination date, etc.). If it has been more than 6 months since your last class please work with your veterinarian to complete the Health Certification form or bring copies of receipts from your vet showing appropriate information.
