Preschool (2-4 months)

Kindergarten (4-6 months)
Similar to Preschool, for pups 4-6 months. Includes basic commands (sit, down, stay, come, leash walking), correcting behaviors like biting, chewing, jumping, housebreaking, and socialization (off-leash playtime to teach puppies how to play with other dogs). Register

"It was so valuable to learn the methods of training and steps on how to mark good behavior. I learned how to train my dog with the distraction of other dogs and people around." - Puppy Kindergarten Client

   
   
Ghostbusters (2-6 months)
After taking this class, your puppy will fear nothing! Proper socialization is just as crucial for your pup as basic obedience. In this socialization/training course, puppies are exposed to different life situations and novel objects from vacuum cleaners, doorways, strollers, muzzles, canes to even kids, the elderly and maybe a man in uniform. Of course, we'll also offer supervised play time and random sounds played on a CD. The course is a mini-session where each day the trainer will cover ways to socialize and show owners how proper introduction paired with positive experiences lead to well-rounded, confident adult dogs.

Playgroup (2-6 months)
A class for pups under 6 months who very much need socialization to build a good foundation for the future. Class provides off-leash, supervised playtime to teach puppies how to play with other dogs. Pups need not, but can be enrolled in either Puppy Preschool or Puppy Kindergarten at the same time as this class. Class is every Tuesday from 6:15-7:15pm. Advanced online registration encouraged. Drop-ins welcome, but please arrive 10 minutes early to register. You will not be able to register after 6:15pm! Playgroup is held at our Center for Compassion in Burlingame. Register
