Puppy-hood can be a long, long road if things are not done right from the beginning. I can show you and your family how to solve typical puppy problems before they get out of hand. Prevention is everything when raising a pup. Be sure you are doing everything you can to end up with the dog of your dreams. Common issues with puppies include:
- crate training
- house training
- walking on the leash
- socialization with other dogs
- basic commands: "sit" "wait" "off" "come" "down"
- prevention of resource guarding, territorial
aggression, and excessive barking.
Puppies will learn with or without you - show them what you expect of them.
Do not wait until your dog is 6 months old to start training - it should start the day you bring them home. Anytime you are interacting with your puppy - you are training.
Puppies learn best in a reward-based training program - which means fun and positive reinforcement. I will leave you with a complete puppy package including an outlined summary of our sessions and fun exercises to continue practicing with your puppy.
In-home private training can include your entire family including young children.
Puppy training packages include 3 sessions spaced out through the many stages of your puppy's 1st year. I am here for you in between via telephone or email.
