Unlike adult dogs, puppies may be flooded with social stimuli. Trainers should not waste this opportunity to quickly socialize pups to people, and desensitize them to all potentially frightening stimuli. Also, puppies of this age may safely be allowed to play together off-leash. Trainers should capitalize on this narrow time-window of opportunity by teaching classes entirely off-leash, with the only exception of teaching leash-work. All puppies should be handfed daily diet of kibble prior to the first session. Puppy II off-leash classes are reserved for Puppy I Graduates only, anytime up to 2 years of age.
