Socialization Clubs

In November 2017 I created a free "Puppy Club," as I honestly feel that the puppy socialization phase window is far too short and too important to miss out on. For various reasons (language barrier is a big one!) it seems that many new owners do not get their puppies into early socialization groups and, sadly, wait until certain problems have already become well-established and very frustrating before seeking help.

Since behavioral problems are by far the number one reason dogs end up in shelters, I feel it is crucial to get qualified information to new puppy owners from the beginning.

Now I offer a PUPPY START RIGHT PRESCHOOL course (4 Modules plus Coursebook and Videos by Kenneth and Debbie Martin) Click here for more information about this course. Additionally I offer:

Preschool Puppy Club will be offered in English, once a week for 60 minutes starting on the 8th of February 2018

Course Dates/Times: In 2018, Puppy Preschool Club will be offered on Thursdays from 18:00:00-19:00 (for pups 7 - 20 weeks of age)

Course Size: Maximum 6 dogs.

Cost: FREE when enrolled in a Puppy Start Right Preschool Course. (Space permitting, non-enrolled clients may attend at the cost of CHF 20.00/dog per evening)


Junior Puppy Club will be offered in English, once a week for 60 minutes for the pups too old for Preschool but who still need some extra socialization practice. (Depending on the developmental stages of the pups, free-play will be limited in this course… Puppies approaching sexual maturity do not play the same as young puppies and it is important that they learn that not every other dog is an opportunity to play! Our goal here is to use the other pups as “distractions” to get our dogs to focus on us and our training exercises.

Course Dates/Times: In 2018, Puppy Club will be offered on Sundays from 17:00-18:00 (for pups 20 - 28 weeks of age)

Course Size: Maximum 6 dogs.

Cost: FREE when enrolled in a Puppy Brain & Body Course or Private or Family Lessons. (Space permitting, non-enrolled clients may attend at the cost of CHF 20.00/dog per evening)


NOTE: these are NOT obedience training programs nor problem-behavior-modification programs! If you need special attention for your puppy’s issues, please contact me to discuss private or family lessons, or to join one of our young dog courses.


The progression of the sessions will be "organic" rather than linear, since not everyone will be able to attend every single lesson. That means that the next session will not necessarily “build on” something that was covered in the previous session. (Although regulars will definitely benefit more than those coming only sporadically.)

Puppies/ Junior dogs must be de-wormed, vaccinated and in good health: (no vomiting, diarrhea or eye/ear infections).

(People accompanying the dogs should also please be in good health!)

 Children are VERY welcome, however, children under 10 years of age should be accompanied by a second adult – one adult to keep an eye on the puppy and another to pay attention to the child.
