BonaFide’s Puppy Foundations class provides the perfect balance between socialization and training for young puppies. Each 45 minute class will be divided into socialization, basic training and discussion time designed to make learning fun for you and your puppy. By interacting with other puppies in a supervised, carefully-structured socialization period, your puppy will learn valuable skills that only other dogs can teach him. He will learn to control his biting strength and appropriately interact with other dogs – vital skills for a bite-free, fight-free life. Your puppy will also be gently exposed to various everyday sights and sounds while having a great time with his new puppy friends so he develops confidence in new situations. During the training portion of the class you will learn how to teach your puppy to settle down in new environments, offer eye contact, come when called, sit, down, leave things alone and follow you on lead. We will use positive reinforcement training methods that won’t stress you or your puppy.
