We at Scott-Fox Puppy Preschool are dedicated to maximizing the training, socialization and early experiences of puppies during this critical period in canine development. Our goal is to provide puppies with the foundational skills to become well-rounded companions and/or K9 athletes. To that end, we utilize positive training methods and gradual, planned, exposure to a wide variety of sights, sounds, people and equipment.
Much like a preschool for children, enrollment secures an on-going space for your puppy, Monday through Friday. Full-time hours are 8 AM to 5 PM, and half-time hours are either 8 AM to 12 PM or 1 PM to 5 PM. (There are also some options for early drop-off and late pick-up.) Your puppy can attend Scott-Fox Puppy Preschool until he/she reaches the age of six months or graduates from the program. Puppies may begin Puppy Preschool training, starting at 8 weeks of age. All puppies must be in good health and up-to-date on their age-appropriate vaccinations.
