Puppy Socialization and Manners: Learn how to harness the boundless energy of your puppy while he learns about playing nicely, greeting new people and exploring new things in his environment. Did you know that the "Puppy Socialization" development period is very short; from about 4 weeks  of age until about 14 weeks of age?  Time is of the essence with the young ones.  A puppy that is properly bred and socialized develops into a confident and well-adjusted adult dog that becomes a terrific life-long companion. Only 1 DHPP + Bordatella vaccine are needed to get started.
