Puppies shape a huge part of their life between the ages of eight weeks and six months. Our puppy training programs focus on building confidence in your new puppy and in you. While your puppy learns commands, we’ll arm you with information on household dangers, health tips, how to provide structure and more. Instilling confidence in your puppy is the foundation for raising a happy, healthy dog.

We understand how hard it can be to part with your puppy. During any of our home-based programs, photos and videos of your dog will be regularly posted on our Facebook page demonstrating their progress. Additionally, we schedule regular phone calls to update you directly. You will receive email reminders prior to those calls. And of course, you can reach out to your trainer at anytime with questions.
