We've made our Puppy Curriculum package even better by teaming with OS to give you:
1. A more powerful way to teach socialization
OS' mission is to get puppies socialized. The OS Puppy Passport gives you a built-in tool for teaching the importance of socialization-- and for helping your students get it done properly. The passport and the exercises we've built around it create powerful incentive for students to get their pups out in the world, and their passports guide them as they go.
2. An easy way to market your puppy classes
Sending students into your community to visit local businesses with their OS Puppy Passports results in new and strengthened referral relationships for you. We've included a complete, easy-to-execute marketing program in your Puppy Curriculum package. And don't worry-- no direct selling needed. If the word 'marketing' makes your stomach flip, this project is perfect for you.
Passports are sold in packets of 20, 40, 80, and 100
20-80 Passports: $2.50 per passport
100+ Passports: $2.25 per passport

FAQ: Do I have to use the Puppy Passports to teach your curriculum?
No. The curriculum is designed to be used with or without the passports. But we think once you try them you'll be hooked-- that's why we include 20 passports free with your curriculum package order. Experience them first hand, and then do the math: If you average 8 students in class, you'll pay $3 per class session for increased socialization compliance and a great way to market and help fill your class program. Not a bad equation.
