A puppy’s third month of life is the most critical time for socialization. Developmentally, things begin to solidify at week 12.

Because of this, we follow the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior’s recommendations on creating positive socialization experiences for puppies before their full vaccine series is complete.

  • All puppies must have had one round of shots plus proof of deworming completed at least seven days prior to first class.
  • Download this PDF and either print or email it to your veterinarian.
  • Bring the completed form to your first class or email it to info@schoolforthedogs.com
  • Puppies should not attend if they show signs of illness – when in doubt, give us a call.
  • Puppies are required to be kept up-to-date on vaccines throughout class.
  • The space is cleaned daily and disinfected before each puppy class.
