Vaccinations: Puppies are required to have their first round of shots and a bordatella vaccine before attending class. Please bring proof of vaccination to your orientation class.

COVID-19: Until the pandemic is behind us, puppy socialization will not include puppy play or interactions with other people.   Our team has discussed the safety of our clients and staff and we cannot  offer Covid-safe play.  Once off leash, puppies would play with each other, check out other people which means touching each other’s puppies, equipment etc.  As a company, Pack of Paws is diligently working safely through this pandemic and some services are run slightly differently.  That said, interaction with others is not the only way to socialize your puppy.  Simple exposure to other dogs while on a leash, other people, novel inanimate things etc. is excellent socialization.  We ARE offering specials within our Daycamp Services where you would drop off your puppy with us for safe play with other puppies.

⭐ Puppy Kindergarten requires an orientation lesson, which you will select from the calendar below. Please bring your dog with you to orientation.

👉 After orientation, you will attend 5 consecutive weekly lessons on your chosen day and time. 

❗❗ Missed lessons cannot be made up (no exceptions).  If you are unable to attend 6 classes in a row, please consider purchasing our Flex-Pass and joining our Perfect Family Dog Obedience program instead.

PLEASE NOTE: Do not feed your dog their regular meal immediately before your training session. If your lesson interrupts your regular feeding schedule, please feed your dog only a small portion of their regular meal.

Payments for all services must be made directly to Pack of Paws Dog Training.
All services are non-refundable. See Terms of Service for details.
