Puppy Building Blocks™ Basics

The goal of Puppy Building Blocks™ is to maximize your pup’s socialization and learning during the narrow window of socialization between the ages of 8 – 20 weeks.  Between the ages of 8 weeks to 20 weeks puppies go through a critical developmental stage.  It is during this stage, puppies form positive and negative associations with other dogs, people, and objects.   This age is also critical for establishing boundaries with your puppy and laying the foundation for impulse control and obedience skills.  Classes are kept small with no more than 6 puppies per class to ensure each puppy receives individual and group training.
