Frequently Asked Questions



What is the difference between rolling enrollment and regular Kinderpuppy class?

The rolling enrollment Kinderpuppy class, currently only offered on Wednesday nights at Dog Gone Happy, features one obedience behavior, one behavior topic, and one socialization category each week, and the topics repeat every 6 weeks. You can join this class any time and attend for 6 weeks, and you'll get all the lessons. The rolling enrollment class also differs in that we cover loose leash walking instead of stand. Puppies come to the first week of class for the rolling enrollment class. Play sessions are included in both classes.
