Is this too much training?

Ruger is 12 weeks old. Sunday noon he will begin petsmart puppy classes. My daughter will assist me in the training as I just cant walk him and the chair with him beside me is too wide for their store.
ON Wednesday afternoon I am going to have private lessons with a trainer who will work with Ruger and me from my power chair.
Do you all think thiis is too much training at such an early age....I would appreciate your input on this....Thanks in advance...

I don't think it'll be too much. The in-home training will be less stressful and exciting since there won't be all the excitement of going out and the trainer will be able to tell if he's had too much for one day. The trainer will probably advise that you practice just a few minutes a couple times a day, and always end on a happy note. Good luck, it's an exciting time!

No, most definitely not. I do several sessions per DAY with my puppies.

As long as you keep it upbeat and positive, then no it is not. Short and sweet is the way to go. The older he gets and the longer his attation span gets you can go for longer.
