Puppy Class Description:
The #1 goal of puppy class is for your puppy to learn that the world is a safe place. The critical socialization window closes for puppies roughly around 5-18 weeks of age. Puppies in this stage of development have brains like sponges, soaking up information about the world around them and learning what is safe and what isn’t safe. Puppy classes are designed for puppies up to 5 months in a fun, positive, reward-based class. Puppies must have their second set of shots.

About the Trainer:


Kathy Belec – ABCDT, CPDT-KA
      I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) which is the highest level of recognition in dog training. This certification is given by the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT) and has worldwide recognition. This means I have completed many hours as a lead instructor, volunteered training dogs and passed a rigorous dog-training exam. In order to keep this designation, I must attend continuing education courses taught by leaders in the field. I have chosen to pursue the CPDT-KA designation because of its code of ethics, scientifically proven dog training techniques and level of professionalism that comes with continuing my education, keeping my skills cutting edge. My CPDT-KA certification has given me the paper to back up my experience and capabilities and gives me credibility on a grander scale that is useful; rescues, shelters, veterinarians, and other professionals are more likely to refer to me.
