The Mensona Kennel Club highly recommends training classes for your new puppy or newly adopted dog. Training classes will help you to bond more closely with your dog, teach you the appropriate way to train your new dog, and provide socialization for your dog. It is also a great start for your new puppy if you plan to participate in the AKC's Canine Good Citizen Program.
Typical "Puppy Kindergarten" or "Basic Obedience" classes are 6 to 8 weeks long-one class per week. To enroll, the puppy must be at least 4 months old and all dogs must be current on their vaccinations.
If you offer dog training classes and are in the bay area, we would be happy to add you to the list. Please contact the Mensona Kennel Club.
The Mensona Kennel Club does not recommend, guarantee, endorse or rate trainers. Please check out trainers by observing their classes before you enroll your dog. Be sure to ask for references and/or credentials.
