This interview with top training facility Denver Paw School's Kathy Thorpe and Colleen Tekamp helps you learn what happens in puppy class, is puppy training class necessary, how long it takes, and the best time to start puppy socialization.

"You have to balance the safety of your puppy with the development of their personality and their ability to take on what they will be exposed to throughout their entire life."

- Kathy Thorpe, Owner of Denver Paw School

"We absolutely do not follow the same old school child rearing because we've grown so much as a culture. And the same holds true for dog training."

- Kathy Thorpe, Owner of Denver Paw School

Don't take your chances with any trainer or facility in the neighborhood and risk damage that might take years or a lifetime to undo. Feel confident about your choice and your commitment to your puppy's development.

"Even 20, 30 years ago, they were really just in the backyard or, in the neighborhood or maybe got to ride in the car to take the kids to school. But now your dog is almost a fixture everywhere you're going and traveling... So we have to add that extra time to really give them a solid foundation of being calm and okay and happy in that variety and that socialization window is just your best opportunity to do it."

- Colleen Tekamp, Training Manager for Denver Paw School
