House Training

Most puppies won’t be ready for basic dog training until they’re a bit older but we can start with puppy on helping them understand core obedience behavior such as sit, lie down, stay, leave it, come, drop it, wait and loose leash walking.


When speaking about manners we are talking about jumping, chewing, nipping, biting, stealing, whining, and barking. Every puppy is different and we’ll work with you on finding the best way to overcome these issues.


There are good ways to socialize and there are the not so good ways to socialize puppies (dog parks, etc). We’ll work with you on how to safely socialize your pup.
