We'll also explore critical socialization and body handling.   And it's never to early to start on some basic manners: sit, lie down, coming when called, and more.   All work and no play make for bored puppies, though, so there will be some play time, based on the group dynamics of the class.   Super-important fine print: Puppies must not be older than 16 weeks by the start of the first class. They must be up to date on their vaccinations relevant to their age, and free of parasites.
