At what age should I start training my puppy?
Tahoe Best Friends accepts puppies in classes starting at age 11 weeks (at least two of their puppy shots for protection) before they start romping with their classmates. Tahoe Best Friends use gentle, positive training methods and we can start them at a very early age. We start a new class puppy class every week, so you never have to wait more than a week to get into a class.
Tahoe Best Friends endorses the teachings of animal behavorist Dr Sophia Yin
