Do not miss socializing your puppy every day

during the important 2 month to a year old development period.  You never get this time back. Young dogs who get to experience the outside world daily with a stable leader grow up to be much more friendly, confident rounded pups than their isolated counterparts.

Nipping/Biting - Scratching - Chewing - Jumping - Barking - Housebreaking - and More!

Did you know that two thirds of a dog's brain is controlled by the olfactory system (sniffing and smelling)?  This gives you great clues about how to help a puppy learn without shouting commands or dispensing treats. Engage the nose wiggle instead!

Read our article,  "The 'Nose Knows' Fun Search Scent Game."

The secret key to simple puppy training is learning how to change challenging daily ROUTINES into LEADERSHIP RITUALS that have great meaning for your pup but only add a few minutes to your day.

It is never too early to start training your puppy.

Training actually began at birth with the canine mom.  A puppy does not "grow out of" biting, jumping, growling, nipping or barking. If you ignore these early problems, they will mushroom as your dog gains age, size and confidence.

Our Puppy Training

It All Starts with the Private Home Behavior Consult - One is Usually All Ever Need to Take Over From There!

Expert dog whisperer guidance and help. Usually one single session is all you need to get on top of your puppy's barking, biting, jumping and housebreaking, plus to start walking him on lead and get him to stop chasing the cat.

Optional Follow-Up Boarding with Training

A fun learning vacation for your puppy, especially when you have to be away. Your pup enjoys being in our home and joining us on hikes, dog park outings, and socialization field trips instead of being stuck in a kennel. We provide round the clock leadership and supervision. Fun safe play with role model dogs.
