Doggy Haven University Prep School

Ages 16 weeks – 25 weeks

Focus during this group will be appropriate play, some basic training, socialization, settle exercises, and being introduced to our DHU daycare group. Our goal is for these adolescent puppies to become good candidates for our DHU daycare program, but we cannot guarantee that puppies in this group will be a good fit for our daycare. Each puppy that would like to attend DHU daycare will still need to complete a trial.

Cautious to Confident

Please email the instructor for approval if you feel your puppy would be a good fit for this class! This session is for puppies and young dogs who may have missed out on some of that early socialization and/or are very shy or nervous around other dogs. Focus during this group will be meeting other dogs in a positive manner. Making a positive association with grooming, crates, and being away from mom/dad. Also teaching these puppies and young dogs some skills to help themselves calm down and gain confidence!
