So Many Dog Trainers, So Little Time!

Before you can decide what dog training program may be right for you, you should interview your potential dog trainer to see if you fit together.  This person should be a professional dog trainer with experience in more than one technique, lots of happy customer references and more than one method or tool in their toolbox.  It is just as important that the trainer evaluate you and your pet before promising anything or quoting you prices.  

Puppies do not yet have the attention span for formal training such as ‘stay’ or ‘heel’ on a short leash until they are closer to 6 months of age.  But there is so much to do including potty training, crate training, house training, how to deal with jumping up or biting and chewing.  We will also teach introduction to leash walking, socialization, sit, lay down, come when called, and so much more.  Includes 3-4 lessons at our beautiful location , written instruction, videos, plus unlimited telephone and email support.  

Puppy Head Start (Privates)

For puppies from 10 weeks to 6 months. 
This program is held privately one-on-one with your trainer and your puppy. If you desire personalized attention or have concerns about your puppies exposure to others, this course is for you.

If you plan on taking your dog places, socialization to the environment, people, and then dogs is a must.  Puppies are the most receptive to new things up until 16 weeks when the opportunity to create a “bomb proof” dog begins to diminish.​
