PUPPY ESSENTIALS

Puppies are learning from day one, whether you are teaching them or not.  

Paw Pack will help you and your puppy get started on a great relationship by taking advantage of your puppy's eager desire to learn.   We start with an initial class/meeting and then offer 3 and 5 class packages.  Here's what we can cover in 5 classes:
