2 Week Pre-School Training Package

Happytail Puppies


This program teaches your puppy the foundations he will need to learn basic obedience skills. Puppies going home after this training will still require fairly constant reinforcement and training in order to solidify their knowledge of the commands & behaviors. This two-week training lays an extremely strong foundation from which the owner can build upon.
