Pandemic Puppy Program
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the world is having to embrace social distancing which is causing a new set of challenges for puppies that are being adopted this year. Despite the world changing, the puppy socialization period has not changed and it is a crucial period of a puppy's life. This program will provide optimal socialization opportunities to new new dogs, new sights, smells, textures, sounds, and more. Here are some of the things we will cover in the Pandemic Puppy Program.
• Supervised playtime/training with other puppies, adult dogs, and humans in a private group! We keep these play groups very small with only 2 dogs at a time. At this age puppies are still developing crucial social skills like polite greetings, being gentle with their teeth, reading other dog's social cues, and growing a positive response to being around other dogs and humans! During this time, there will be a training interlude every 30 seconds. This can mean a simple collar grab, then give a treat, then back to play or a few seconds of luring into different positions then back to play! This helps with reliability when off leash, regulating arousal levels, and helps the puppy learn to think and pay attention in the midst of distractions.
• Regular daycare group with other puppies, adult dogs, and humans!
Each puppy will complete one 15 minute positive reinforcement basic obedience training sessions a day working on sit, down, climb with the owner of Fetching Pet Company.
• 15 Minutes of Introduction to handling
This is going to be especially useful for grooming appointments and vet visits! During this period of Puppy Preschool, we will work on creating a positive response to opening and clothing their mouths, touching their paws, feeling their bellies, lifting their legs, and more.
• Exploring new things
Each puppy will explore new textures, surfaces, sounds, and smells such as different textured rugs, tunnels, wobbly surfaces, scent games like brain stimulating puzzles, and more!
• Age appropriate nap times
• Scheduled meal breaks
