This course takes a holistic approach to puppy parent education, focusing heavily on social and behavioural development. In addition to predetermined tendencies, much of a dog's character is molded during a critical development stage from approximately 3 to 16 weeks of age. This course is designed to empower novice and experienced puppy parents alike with simple exercises that can be incorporated into daily life to build character and manners.

This workbook consists of seven online coursework modules, including six short quizzes culminating in a final exam. The workbook is designed to accompany six classroom-based lessons. The Orientation precedes your first class and is designed to extend course content to that of a seven-week course, introducing crucial fundamental concepts that can be difficult to absorb once you have your puppy with you. If you do not complete the Orientation module and quiz, then you may be ill-prepared for Lesson 1.

Happy Puppy Parenting!
