Do you offer in person training?
Yes! 1 on 1 training sessions are offered both virtually or in person. Day Training is offered completely in person. In person services are offered to vaccinated families who are located within 10 miles of Central SJ.
What are your Covid-19 protocols?
For all in person meetings, I ask that you are vaccinated, wear a N95 mask/equivalent or double mask with cloth over surgical mask. Social distancing and meeting outdoors whenever possible. I am immunocompromised and appreciate your due diligence.
I am signing up for multiple services, is there anyway to bypass inputting all my information?
Make an account with the scheduling software. The system will save most of your information.
I am unsure if I should socialize my puppy before they are fully vaccinated, what do you recommend?
The American Veterinay Society of Animal Behavior recommends you socialize your puppy after the first set of vaccinations. Socialization is like vaccinating your puppy against behavior problems and it's best done before 4 months of age. Studies have shown that dogs that socialize early in a controlled environment are not at higher risk of infectious disease.
50% of dogs in shelters are there due to behavioral problems. 30% of those dogs are from breeders. 20% being from rescues/shelters and other sources.
"The risk of your puppy developing serious behavior problems from being poorly socialized is far greater than that of infectious disease."
