Our six-week Puppy Cooperative Care class is designed to set puppies up for a lifetime of success at the vet, the groomer, and at home by helping you and your pooch grow more comfortable with common grooming and veterinary tasks. 

In classes centered around the idea of canine consent, you will learn to:

  • Turn husbandry “chores” into “tricks”
  • Break down difficult procedures into simple steps
  • Recognize what consent looks like in your dog
  • Respect your puppy’s choice in practical ways
  • Increase comfort and confidence with body exams, weigh-ins, nail trims, medication administration, and more
  • Avoid common mistakes that allow fear to take root and grow
  • Improve communication with your vet and groomer
  • Make caring for your growing pup safer, simpler, and more efficient, using the same techniques employed at zoos and aquariums around the world!

This class is appropriate for puppies 8 weeks to 6 months old.
