Puppy Jump-Start Program includes:
  • Puppy Consult- a 2 hour in-home consult discussing how to curb unwanted behaviors, how to properly socialize a puppy, tips for crate and potty training and how to start teaching your puppy to pay attention to you
  • Socialization Field Trip- we meet you out in public to safely expose your puppy to new things and places while working on teaching your puppy to pay attention to you and stay calm around distractions
  • Foundational Obedience Training- 3 in-home lessons teaching the obedience commands you will use for the rest of your puppy’s life (sit, down, come, place, leave it and walking on a leash)

Platinum Puppy Program

This program is the epitome of comprehensive training for your puppy! This is way more than just teaching your puppy to sit for a cookie. If you’ve ever had visions of one day owning a dog that could go anywhere with you, walk on-leash politely through busy areas and crowds, listen off-leash without food bribes, yelling or chasing, and be a well-mannered companion in the home then this is the program for you.

This program is specifically designed to help deal with the challenges during the puppy stage, start teaching the foundation of obedience training, focuses on proper socialization (aka being calm and polite in public) BUT THEN continues into adolescence where we begin more formal training, nip any unwanted teenage behaviors in the bud and work all the way to off-leash freedom and control. It’s been hugely successful for our clients and we love offering it to people with young puppies because we start them off right, avoid any major behavior issues, and end up with an adult dogs that can go anywhere their owners want to take them.  The rewards for both your family and your puppy are huge!
