“As an ethical breeder (puppies sold with contracts and parents health screened), I know that early socialization is of critical importance. I take my puppies to Courteous Canine, Inc. and I recommend Courteous Canine, Inc.’s group classes whole heartedly. The methods used by Courteous Canine, Inc. are up to date and always dog friendly.”

6-Session Enroll and Go AKC Star Puppy Kindergarten
Class Type: Group.
Term: 6 sessions, 1 hour-long each
Prerequisite: This class is open to any breed under the age of 6 months
Puppies have a lot to learn about their roles as family pets and man’s best friends. This class helps a puppy put his best paw forward. It covers house training, not mouthing, sit, down, coming when called, stay, loose-leash walking and much more. Most importantly, we work with you and your dog to establish a trusting relationship that serves as an important foundation for future training and a happy life together.
Puppy graduates of the class can take a photo in a “cap and gown.” Owners can also opt for their puppies to take the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy test, which ensures that your dog is being raised with socialization and safety in mind. This is a very popular program which was added due to client demand!
