And Puppy Kindergarten!
In its first months, a puppy
develops behavior patterns
which will be a part of his life - and yours - forever!
In Puppy Kindergarten, your pup will meet
other puppies, large and small, children and men and women.
While your puppy is learning manners,
you will have the opportunity to ask questions
and share hints on housebreaking, crate training,
biting, nutrition, veterinary care, obedience and more.
Puppy Kindergarten meets
every Monday evening
at 6 pm at Hilltop Pet Clinic.
Bring your entire family for
an hour of fun for you and your new puppy!
