The veterinarians and staff can expose puppies to so many different things during this developmental stage, with the end goal being that they accept all different situations as just another day in the life of a dog! Each class begins and ends with puppy play time, one of the most important aspects of this class. During play, puppies can teach each other things we as humans just simply cannot, such as "Is this an appropriate way to invite play?" Or "You bit too hard!"
Our program also covers the basics of how to raise a great puppy, including potty training, kennel training and basic obedience. We emphasize encouraging positive behavior and teach owners the proper way to reward, ignore or re-direct the behaviors
Prairie Animal Hospital's Kitten Kindergarten welcomes kittens from 8 to 16 weeks of age. During this time, we are taking advantage of what is called the "No-fear" or "prime socialization window".

This is by far the best animal hospital I have ever seen. I have two cats and they have been to many vet's before I took them here. Everyone here is very nice, and one of my cats, who is very jumpy around new things, sat calmly during her exam and didn't try jumping on everything in the room.
The staff is super welcoming! Dr. Rachel is also very personable, which makes everything feel more comfortable.
Dr. Kuhn and the rest of the PAH team are absolutely astounding. Had to have my cairn terrier boarded for a couple days on very short notice and they took amazing care of her. Would recommend to anyone.
SO impressed. The doctor and staff went out of their way to make my big dog (who has social issues) feel comfortable. They were caring, compassionate, knowledgeable, and prompt. I couldn't ask for better. We have to drive a bit to get to the facility, but it is well worth it. HIGHLY recommend!!
