Puppy EmmiThe central theme of Dog Talk 2 will be the narrative of how to raise a puppy. Through the daily experiences of Emmi, our now 14 week-old Newfoundland, we will explore the rewards and frustrations of raising a puppy, from housebreaking, socialization and expected behavior to exercise, nutrition and training. We will follow Emmi’s journey as she learns to become a part a world that can be exciting, challenging, bewildering and joyous for her, all at the same time.  During our seven-week class as we follow Emmi’s path, we will also discuss topics such as vet care, different dog breeds, shelter dogs, famous dogs both past and present, dog body language and our own dog experiences.

This class is an informative, interesting and fun human journey for all 4th-8th graders who connect with and are fascinated by our canine companions.
