The Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA is offering another Puppy Pre-School Session, for canines less than four months of age June 18.
The class allows owners to take advantage of their puppy’s critical socialization period, according to a PHS and SPCA announcement.
Puppies will learn how to respond to their name, get used to being handled and groomed and introduced to walking on leash. They will be introduced to everyday objects, obstacles and other stimulation that will equip them into the next stage of life.
The future dogs also get a chance to socialize with their canine cohort in a safe and well-managed environment. Owners will get important information on early prevention of problem behaviors such as mouthing, biting and house soiling.
General registration fees for the Puppy Pre-School Session are $150, $110 for dogs adopted from PHS, and $85 for active PHS volunteers. The announcement said the sessions will continue for five more weeks, at one hour each week.
The PHS and SPCA, is a donor-supported nonprofit organization providing animal care and services for homeless and owned animals in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
The PHS and SPCA offers lifesaving programs and services to the community that support the human-animal bond and keep pets in homes.
The event runs from 5:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., at their offices at 361 South Raymond Avenue. Call (626) 792-7151 ext. 155, or visit www.pasadenahumane.org/event/puppy-pre-school-session-5/?instance_id=2395.
