The Whimsy Dog and Holistic Dog Training are teaming up to offer an in-person class designed to teach puppies (8 weeks - 5 months) and children how to coexist safely and joyfully. This class is specifically designed to give you, your kids and your beloved puppies strategies and foundation skills to set everyone in your home up for success.

In this class, dogs and their humans will learn about: 

  • Bite Inhibition: Ouch! Those teeth are like little knives. Give your puppy healthy outlets for their natural instincts to explore the world mouth first and develop self regulation around mouthing / puppy biting.

  • Physical Handling & Healthy Play: Build stronger bonds and deeper trust by handling your puppy with care and developing healthy play strategies for your kids and dogs. 

  • Socialization 101: Help your dog fall in love with the world and set a strong foundation for them. Build their confidence and give them quality positive and neutral experiences with diverse people, animals and in new environments!

  • Preparing for the Terrible Teens: Learn what you can expect from your teenage tyrant and develop strategies to prepare for adolescence.
