Puppy Training

He's finally here! That cute, adorable little fluffball that you have been waiting for. You dreamt about who he would become and the fun adventures you would have! Does that dream seem far away right now?


You love him so much but some days are hard and you are think there must be something wrong with him. He is pees and poops in your house. He wakes you up whining and barking all night long. You can't leave him alone for even a second without him finding trouble. He is chewing on your things, biting your hands and feet and nibbling holes in your favorite clothing. Then when you think you can't stand one more second he falls asleep in your arms and your heart melts. Then the whole process begins again the next day

Puppies are adorable but they are also A LOT of work. I have worked with thousands of puppies and puppy owners. I have taught them the valuable life skills to make living and loving their puppy easy. This experience gives me the skills that you need to survive puppyhood.

Life with your puppy isn't quite what you expected!

Puppy Training has lifelong benefits!

Life with your puppy isn't quite what you expected!

Life with your puppy isn't quite what you expected!

Did you know that puppies are learning constantly?  When they are awake they explore their environement and discover new and exciting things.  They learn about what they like, dislike and how to gain access to all the things they value.  Early training and socialization are the keys to creating a great relationship and a great foundation that will allow your puppy to grow into your perfect companion.  This dog will hopefully be a part of your life for the next 10-15 years so let's get him started on the right path to becoming the dog you have always dreamed of.  It's never to early to start!

Let me help you find the joy in puppyhood and set your dog up for a lifetime of success

I offer a puppy prep session to help you get ready before bringing your puppy home. There are 2 different types of training packages to fit into every lifestyle. Check out the packages below and let's get started on the path to an easier life with your puppy!

  • Housetraining - where it is and  is not okay to pee

  • Foundation Manners - Sit, Name, Come and Walk on loose leash

  • Chewing - which items belong to them and which are off limits

  • Socialization - new people, places and things are not scary
