Puppy Classes for Bonding with Your New Best Friend

Nothing can quite match the excitement of bringing a new puppy into your home. They’re cute, cuddly and small, and fun to play with. But your puppy’s unruly behavior may become more destructive as they grow, so the first few months of their life are a critical time for puppy training and socialization. Here at West Loop Veterinary Care, we understand how fleeting the puppy years can be—before you know it, your puppy will double or triple in size. That’s why we recommend enrolling your new four-legged friend in our “Just Puppy!” classes, to ensure that they become obedient, good-natured family companions.

Just Puppy! Classes

Our puppy classes are open to puppies between 8 weeks and 5 months of age. In a fun, secure environment, we teach behavioral training, handling and socialization with people and other puppies, and basic manners. We teach a variety of commands and skills, including:

  • Sit
  • Down
  • Stay
  • Drop it
  • Leave it
  • Take it
  • Heel
  • Polite greetings
  • Tricks
  • …and more

Our goal is to help pet owners solve common behavioral problems like house training and leash training using fun and effective dog-friendly techniques. We want to minimize the stress involved with keeping your pet on their best behavior while you’re out of the room or out of the house. Keep in mind that these classes are also a great time for you to bond with your puppy. You’re their best friend for life, and it’s up to you to not only keep them healthy, but well-behaved and socialized, as well.

We Have Certified Trainers

At West Loop Veterinary Care, all of our trainers are certified by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers®. This means that they have gone through an international certification process designed for dog training professionals. Our trainers are dedicated to promoting the most humane training techniques, and staying up-to-date on the latest developments in training practices. Our mission is to strengthen the bonds between owners and their pets so they can share many happy years together.
