Puppy Classes

So, as you may have read, I'm adding a new puppy to my family in a few weeks. I'm just wondering if anyone knows of some good training classes in the Ottawa area? Just looking to see what's out there.

I posted in your other thread...I'll just copy/paste here.

Seeing you're fortunate to be in Ottawa, I'd strongly recommend you get in touch with Dr Jennifer Messer at info@pavski.ca ( http://www.pavski.ca/contact-us.html ) and ask if there are socialization classes in your area that apply her Kinderpuppy curriculum. I recently attended a seminar she presented at and am extremely impressed with her program.
Other excellent training centers in the Ottawa area are: http://www.foreverfriendsdogtraining.ca/default.html and http://www.carolark.com/ .

You can always ask to sit in on a class and see which one you're most comfortable with.

Thanks for the suggestions, luckypenny! I noticed your suggestion about Dr. Messer in the other forum and did send an email to them about classes. I have actually heard of her before, since she writes for ModernDog Magazine - my boyfriend bought me a subscription for my last birthday! Hahah. I'm hoping I'll hear back from someone there soon. Meanwhile, I'll look into your other suggestions. Thanks a million!
