This six week course, taught by Pia Silvani, Behavior Director at Asheville Humane Society, focuses on proper socialization, bite inhibition, house training, manners and much more!

Your goal as a puppy parent is to give your pup the best possible start in life. Puppies learn more between 3 and 16 weeks of age than they will in their entire lifetime! Laying a positive foundation during this time is critical for puppies to grow into behaviorally healthy dogs.

This six week course focuses on proper socialization, bite inhibition, house training, manners and much more! The class is limited to 10 puppies who are 8 to 16 weeks old when the course begins (if your dog is over 16 weeks of age, please sign up for the Canine Manners class).

* All puppies must have started their puppy vaccine series (distemper, parvo and bordetella) at least one week prior to the first class. Owners are expected to commit to continuing this vaccine series during the six week course. The course is held at the Asheville Humane Society Community Center, 1425 Patton Avenue, Asheville, NC 28806.

The cost of this course ($175) includes six classes, held one hour per week for six Saturdays, beginning on July 24 from 1 to 2 PM. Course dates are: 7/24, 7/31, 8/7, 8/14, 8/21, and 8/28 from 1-2 PM unless otherwise arranged by the trainer.
