Puppies arrive as adorable little bundles of fur, but
amazingly, within a few months reach near-adult size.
Training should begin as soon as you bring your puppy
home. By learning how to communicate and develop a trusting
relationship with your pup now, you can prevent serious
problems down the line.

class is a terrific place for them to learn to inhibit
their bite, and enjoy the company of other dogs
and people — especially children.
