Puppy Socials – check out our daycamp program!

Puppies begin learning at birth, and their brains appear to be particularly responsive to learning and re-training experiences that are encountered during the optimal period from birth to 16 weeks. Early socialization is crucial to a puppy’s mental growth, teaching quiet, submissive behavior without fear when meeting new people and animals.
