Puppy Training

Setting up your family, and your puppy, for a lifetime of success and happiness is only a phone call away.  Your puppy is never too young to begin learning, and the earlier you are able to create good habits both for your puppy and your family, the better.

Before Your Puppy Arrives

In-Home Puppy Consultation

In this Private (in your home) 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 and avoid mistakes to prevent major problems later in life and make your new puppy 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.​​
