Have a new puppy? Like the rest of Virginia, we at Pup 'N Iron will be easing into in person classes slowly. We are offering this 6 week class for puppies 12 weeks to 5 months old and will introduce all the basic manners and practical behaviors to build a foundation for a well trained dog. Class size is limited to 8 puppies and in accordance with state orders, all social distancing measures will be adhered to (maintaining 6 feet apart, wearing masks, etc). Additionally, current restrictions also limit the amount of people at inside gatherings to no more than 10 people, so depending on class size, it may be necessary to limit one handler per dog/puppy. All puppies in attendance must show proof of immunizations (distemper/parvo/bordetella). Rabies required for dogs 6 months and older.

- Impulse control exercises that prompt your puppy to make good choices.
