The Polite Puppy® at Friendship Hospital for Animals
Primary Care veterinarian Dr. Greg Matheson helps start your puppy off on the right paw with The Polite Puppy® training class!
The Polite Puppy® is a six-week, hour-long class held on Monday nights at 7:00 pm. It is open to puppies under six months of age.
The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) agrees that as your puppy develops, the most sensitive time for socialization is 6-12 weeks. In our class, your puppy will have the opportunity to engage with other dogs of a similar age, vaccination status, and training level. We will discuss comprehensive training and wellness care recommendations. These classes aim to help you sort through the important life-long habits necessary to ensure that you are raising a well-behaved, happy, and healthy dog. The class is held at our hospital so that your puppy will develop a strong positive association with hospital visits, making all future trips an enjoyable and stress-free experience.
