The most critical age of socialization for puppies is between 3 and 20 weeks of age. Typically, the first 6 to 8 weeks of life are with mom and litter mates. This time is critical for development, but socialization must not end there. The lessons learned during this socialization period will have life-long effects on a puppy’s personality and how they react to people, other animals, and environments outside their home.
Puppy Pre-K class is a great opportunity for your puppy to socialize with other puppies and people at an important time in their development. While the class is open to puppies up to six months of age, the earlier you start, the better your success!
