What age to begin puppy classes?

Our new girl will be 12 weeks exactly when the local training place begins puppy classes. Is this too young? She won't be done with her shot series until 16 weeks.

We went to Sirius dog and puppy School in California. They require puppies to be 12 weeks or under for puppy kindergarten. Everybody has to come with papers proving the first series of shots. After that, most people simply proceed right along with the next classes (puppy 1 and 2) after they have their 16-week shots. But they run their first four puppy kindergarten classes between 8 and 12 weeks.

I am shocked that any trainer would take a puppy prior to the vaccination series being completed, especially in a class setting with other unvaccinated puppies.

you can actually skip puppy classes. just saying. there are so many things you can do on your own basically just playing with your pup and letting them see things.
