The Polite Puppy®

The Polite Puppy®

The Polite Puppy® at Friendship Hospital for Animals is designed to start your puppy off on the right paw!

Friendship Primary Care veterinarian Ashley Gallagher leads The Polite Puppy®, a 5-week class, open to puppies age 8-24 weeks.  Dr. Gallagher will help you sort through the important lifelong habits necessary to ensure that you are raising a well-behaved, happy, and healthy dog.

The Polite Puppy® is held every Tuesday evening at the hospital.  Your puppy will develop a strong positive association with hospital visits, making future trips an enjoyable and stress-free experience.

To ensure the best experience for our puppies and puppy parents, class sizes are limited.
