Puppy classes or no? Why do most people take their pups?
I've been doing a lot of reading and research on puppy classes and wanted to see why they are recommended and why do most people take their pups to class?
I see socialization as being a large part of it, followed by basic training. If I plan on doing a lot socialization and training myself. What would be the need to add puppy classes to the routinte? I'm plan on following the Puppiest 1st night, 1st year plan on socializing and training our pup.
Would love to hear from those who have trained multiple pups, breeders, etc... as to the pro's and con's of attending puppy classes. I can't afford one on one training, so if it's recommended, would be looking into open puppy classes (preferably not at Petsmart/Petco)
