Puppy Training Tips

During this COVID-19 pandemic, it’s difficult to take a puppy “out and about” so it can experience a wide variety of social situations and stimuli. Though KCFA has had to cancel classes for the summer, we want to encourage “puppy parents” to provide training and educational opportunities at home. In support of those who’ve recently acquired a puppy, KCFA’s Puppy Kindergarten instructors and Training Committee have collaborated to produce several informational articles. Please visit the Course Descriptions page for the links to these articles.
