Puppy Training

Your puppy's education begins the second you bring him or her home. That's why it's important to set up your family, and your puppy, for a lifetime of success. 


Like an infant, a puppy is learning all the time, from everything you do, whether you think you are training or not. The earlier you create good habits, the happier you will all be. The road to happiness is just a phone call away.

Before Your Puppy Arrives

In-Home Puppy Consultation

The earlier the better, but better late than never! The Private, In-Home, Puppy Consultation is for puppies between 8 weeks and 6 months of age. In this lesson, I work with you before your puppy arrives, when you come home together or after your puppy is in the house. I will teach you and your family to how interact with your pup, avoid mistakes to prevent major problems later in life, and set your puppy on the path to becoming everything you want it to be. 

I will also identify potential challenges unique to your situation and environment, so we can proactively resolve issues before they start.​​
