Todd's Puppy class cancelled on us!! Training classes in Loudoun County VA?
I had Todd signed up for puppy kindergarten starting on Monday evening. The school called and cancelled saying they didn't have enough dogs for the class. She said that she signed us up for the next available class starting on June 3rd!!! He'll be over 5 months old by then. I was really looking forward to this class. I feel it is a very important step for us and the time is now to get this started. I can't seem to find any other available places to take him in my area except for Petsmart, or private lessons. I have used this facility in the past, but it has been awhile. It's been over 6 years since I've done obedience with a dog and I find it invaluable to go through all the stages of obedience through to the CGC. Todd is an office dog, so he is exposed to the public. Any suggestions? Is 5 months too old for puppy kindergarten? Anyone out there in Northern VA that knows of good training schools in the Loudoun area? Ugh. Todd is a really good boy, and he is socialized to other dogs and lots of people young and old. But, I like the idea of the socialization and training combo provided by kindergarten.
