We provide puppy training during the early impressionable months of puppy life and believe puppy training is essential to a long, happy relationship with your dog. Preventing, diagnosing and controlling behavior problems at a young age will result in an obedient pet for many years to come. We have had the unfortunate experience of euthanizing adult pets with uncontrollable behavior problems that could have been prevented with appropriate training of both dog and owner at a younger age.
Remember, the effort you put into your puppy in the early months will pay off tremendously in the future.
We are pleased to offer a series of puppy socialization and owner education classes, called “Smart Owners, Smart Pets”. The classes run out of our Bracebridge location, Centennial Animal Hospital, at various times throughout the year. Pre-registration is required and age-restrictions apply.
Our puppy classes include a five week course for you and your puppy, covering aspects of puppy behaviour and socialization including: house training, bite inhibition, crate training, basic obedience, nutrition, puppy play, grooming, dental care and much, much more. We strongly encourage all puppy owners to enroll in these classes, even if you have had a dog before, as these classes are an excellent way to refresh your knowledge. Also, puppies enjoy playing with other puppies!
