Your pup is sure to make tons of friends in a fun and safe environment during social playgroup sessions designed to build confidence in your canine and teach them how to interact with other dogs.

Benefits of Puppy Preschool


Socialization is a key part of setting your pup up for success and is more effective the earlier it is done. By having your dog attend Puppy Preschool, they will be more comfortable when meeting new friends.


It takes time for new pups to feel confident and understand their surroundings. Our crate training and potty walks are the perfect tools to allow you to feel comfortable leaving your dog home alone.


Puppies are very curious and their minds need constant stimulation to keep them on top of their game. Puppy Preschool challenges your dog through interactive games and toys so their minds keep developing.
