Puppy kindergarten – classes for puppies between 2 and 6 months of age*. In this age range, puppies feel safe in each other’s company. It a time when learning about the world comes quite easily and in agreement with their natural needs.
The Canine Kindergarten is mostly set to socialize the dog in a reasonable way and learning skills which will later be useful in everyday life and in basic obedience training.
**We also run a kindergarten for older dogs. If your dog is older than 6 months, please consult the trainer before signing up for a course.

Our goals are:
• familiarizing the owners with effective training methods
• explaining and building the dog’s motivation to cooperate
• explaining the importance of teaching puppies self-control and resignation and how to do it
• teaching puppies how to behave in a group of dogs or people
• familiarizing dogs with different surfaces, sounds and objects.
• teaching the basics of good behavior among dog owners and dogs
• familiarizing the puppy with the company of bigger dogs – adult, balanced dogs are present during the training.
A canine kindergarten is the most important investment in the puppy’s life. What the puppy learns during their first weeks in the new home will yield interest later in life. A well-socialized dog is not afraid of new situations, has a neutral attitude towards people and other animals.
