Puppy Play ~n~ Learn

 $150 for 6 classes

For Puppies 10 weeks-through the 6th month

Saturdays @10:00am and @11:30am.

The following schedule repeats every six weeks, so you can jump in at anytime and catch up at anytime or just come when the topic interests you.

Class is “closed” after the first 6 puppies have confirmed their weekly attendance and payment has been received. You can watch the enrollment in my Group Classes calendar. Just click on the class you want, and you can see how many and what kind/age of the pups enrolled, so you can choose the best class for you. 

Call, text (904-442-5923), or fill out the Client Form to secure your spot. If you show up without notifying Maggie or Jenna, you may be sent home in order to keep the classes small. If you reserve a spot and do not show up, you will be still be charged for that class.

·        Choose a cone to stand by in the training room. Do not let your pups say hello to each other. Each time your puppy looks at you, click and deliver a food reward. I will have clickers available and usually have food too -but it’s wise to bring your own that your dog really likes. Treat pouches, harnesses and some leashes are sold at MMDT. Best to bring a HUNGRY puppy!
