Puppy Specific Programs
Get the knowledge, guidance and assistance you need to start your puppy off right and on track to raising the balanced adult dog you’re hoping for! Puppies are capable of much more than just doing ‘tricks’ for food for 6 months. They are sponges, they want to learn and they want to be doing something! Yes, puppies have a short attention span, therefore, training sessions are often done 5-15 min at a time rewarded with play and done multiple times throughout the day. Even when we’re not doing specific little obedience sessions, the pup is still always learning what it can and can’t do! In one to two weeks if worked with regularly they are perfectly capable of having a basic understanding of sit, down, drop/leave, come, waiting for food and at doors and starting to walk nicely on leash!
Crate training is extremely important in the puppy training process! This helps them learn to be separate from you sometimes, it helps them learn to hold their bladder, it keeps them safe from things like toxic household items when you cannot supervise, and it gives them a safe place to go if they’re feeling tired or overwhelmed by company or children. Also having a crate trained dog gives you the freedom of traveling to pet friendly locations but keeping them out of trouble in the new room or being able to leave them for boarding places like here!
For examples on what puppies are capable of learning please see the Facebook Page for lots of videos!
Providing the best start to training, socializing & relationship building. Whether a small private program to jump start your puppy manners training or a full puppy/dog raising program, we can help you create the best version of your dog & prevent serious behaviour issues that so many struggle with as their dogs mature.

Private Coaching Programs
Our private programs provide you with the tools, guidance & knowledge you need to build a strong relationship with your dog and are tailored to suit your needs. Learn about how your dog thinks, their drives/instincts/impulses, how to communicate with them clearly and be able to have fun and control. If you want to have the best relationship possible with the dog you’ve chosen to love & live with, this is a great way to get there! Just imagine yourself sitting on a patio with your dog laying calmly at your side while people and dogs pass by or out on a hike and your dog begins chasing the rabbit or deer that appears and having the ability to holler at them to come and they do! You can have that if you want it. We can help you achieve those things if you’re willing to learn and take some time to apply the work.
