Unleashed Potential K9 Puppy Management Class
At Unleashed Potential K9, we believe puppy training begins the day you get your puppy, and we can help you build a solid, trusting foundation.
Proper socialization is critical for normal development and future coping skills. Conditioning exercises and drive building are essential to raising a highly social, well-balanced and temperamentally sound adult dog. By taking our Puppy Management and Socialization program, any puppy (purebred or not) can be a great pet or working dog upon social maturity. Also, it can prevent unwanted behaviour and lay a solid foundation for future obedience training.
During puppy management, you will be establishing a proper relationship and a bond that you will treasure for years to come. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
This program is for vaccinated puppies that are at least 8 weeks old. We will teach you how to train your puppy through supervised group socialization classes until your puppy reaches 20 weeks old.
Have a puppy that is 16 weeks or older? Book a Free Consult with us below to talk about Private Training Options!

TESTIMONIAL FROM A PUPPY MANAGEMENT GRADUATE
"I have been in the puppy class now for 7 weeks, and I look forward to attending each week. My puppy, who is a small-breed dog, and by nature, very sweet, has the usual puppy foibles (chewing, nipping, pulling on the leash, etc). I have noticed a marked improvement since the start of the classes.
I would highly recommend this class to anyone, whether your dog is a strong-willed larger-breed or a docile, soft natured smaller breed. All dogs need socialization, and this class is the perfect way to do it. The dogs are exposed not only to other dogs, but to other people. And, the best part, the class is lots of fun both for the dogs and their humans."
