Puppy Training

Puppy Prep Consultation

 

Bringing home your new puppy is an exciting event. In order to set you and your puppy up for success, this requires obtaining resources.

Before your pup arrives home, the puppy prep consultation visit will provide you and your family with a three-hour, private, in-home lesson to review basics on family interactions and best approaches to help your family and your puppy acclimate well to each other.

Board and Train

(Puppy Best Start Boarding School)

Puppies are adorable and exciting to bring into your home, however early training is essential. Effective and consistent teaching and guidance early on can help build the foundation to allow your puppy to grow into the companion you dream of having.

 

My three-week training program will teach your puppy socialization (crucial!) and all foundation commands, allowing you to focus on keeping up with your busy schedule. Since your puppy will be staying with me during this period, he/she will receive two to four training sessions per day in a comfortable environment with loving care. This program is one of the most effective methods of training that will provide excellent results for you and your puppy as he/she grows into a respectable dog.

 

This program is perfect for clients with a busy lifestyle who would like to see significant results in a short period of time without having to do all the foundation work.
