Free Puppy Training For Fosters....

Tracy has recently started teaching training classes again at Kim's Canines (St. Charles, I-70/94, ), and is working with the owner to allow 501c3 rescue foster homes with puppies to attend puppy classes for free. She is sure you know how critical that first 16-18 weeks is, and how important it is for the dogs to have positive socialization experiences; that is our primary focus, along with education and training to avoid later behavior issues such as resource guarding & biting.

There classes are open enrollment, where people can start with their puppies at any time. Classes are offered 3 times per week. All that they would ask is that if the foster home liked the training experience, that they recommend Kim's Canines for training to the final adoptors and give them some literature. The puppies need to have at least 1 vaccine (preferably 2), and a clean fecal, and be in a home environment for at least 7 days if pulled from a shelter.

If you know of reputable 501c3 groups that might be interested, please have them contact Tracy directly at or 314-566-9038.
