Puppy “Head Start” –  Confidence and Marker Training Programs for Puppies under 5 months of age.

Puppy Training Shapes Behavior. There is a 4 to 5 month period after a puppy turns 3 months old that shapes her behavior for the rest of her life.  It is crucial that you do just about everything right, and the sad fact is, most people don’t! This is the reason you find a lot of 1 year old dogs in shelters, lack of proper puppy training. Our Puppy Packages were designed for this very reason.  We do not want to see good dogs end up in shelters!

We offer two puppy training options:  First a one hour Puppy Consultation which consists of one (1) private, 1-hour lesson, a training lead and a folder loaded with training information.  This is perfect for the family that has had dogs in the past, but need a refresher on potty training, crate training, socialization, desensitization, stopping nipping/biting and building your leadership position.

The second option is our Puppy Starter Package.  This consists of two (2) private, 1-hour lessons, training lead and a folder loaded with training information.  This is perfect for the family that has not owned a dog before.  In addition to the information in the Puppy Consultation we also start using Marker (clicker) Training to begin shaping behaviors that are needed in Basic Obedience Training.  We demonstrate techniques for building confidence and desensitizing your pup to “strange” noises.  We teach you how to play a couple of learning games with your puppy. We also answer any questions you have about your puppy and her training.
