Puppy 0-16 weeks

Step 1:  Puppy Socialization Classes

Puppy Socialization Classes are always my first recommendation for any puppy 16 weeks of age or younger.  Learning how to socialize with their peers paired with positive training techniques helps to ensure your puppy grows up behaviorally sound.
