Pet Help Sessions

Puppies W.I.N. will be given by Tristan Rehner on May 20th at 7:00 p.m. in the AHNA Education Room. This is a special help session for people with puppies under 5 months of age. Understand what is age-appropriate puppy behavior, learn how to establish good habits to prevent problems from developing, and discover how to take advantage of your puppy’s socialization window.

Puppies W.I.N. is open to anyone who is interested in understanding more about their puppy – or who might be preparing to bring a puppy into their home. Attendance of a Puppies W.I.N. session is also required before enrolling in Puppy Class. All Help Sessions are for humans only. Please leave your pets at home.
