Did you know that the experiences your puppy has during their first six months shape their personality for the rest of their life? It is essential that your puppy receives positive experiences during this time. These experiences should include interaction with people, animals, and the environment outside of their immediate household and circle of friends. This is referred to as “socialization” and is the single most important thing you can do with your puppy before it is six months old! An easy and fun way to provide proper socialization is to enroll your new puppy in a puppy socialization and/or basic dog obedience classes.

That’s why we strongly recommend enrolling your pet in classes with Beyond the Dog, which provides dog behavior therapy and obedience classes for puppies, dogs, kittens, and cats. These dog training experts offer help from the socialization of your pet to specific behavior issues including aggression or house soiling. Their experienced obedience training team includes advanced degrees in the behavioral sciences, a board certified behavior analyst, and a certified dog behavior consultant.
