For Puppy’s Under 5 Months Old
As cute, snuggly, and precious that puppies are, it’s no secret that they can be a huge challenge. Get your puppy started off on the right paw with basic training and good manners. Using only positive training methods, our Puppy Basics Training is customized and focused on imprinting good behaviors around four main areas:
House Training – Most clients report that accidents are greatly reduced or gone within the first few days of using our house training system.
Obedience –Most puppies won’t be ready for basic 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.
Manners –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.
Socialization –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.
