Congratulations on your new puppy! Caring for and raising a young puppy into a well-adjusted adult dog is a big responsibility. That first year is critical to ensuring that your dog will be comfortable with the world and understand what is expected of him, but with all the conflicting information out there, it’s hard to discern best practices. Benefit from the experience of a nationally certified trainer that can coach you through everything from before puppy arrives to surviving puppy adolescence, using dog-friendly methods that build puppy’s confidence and trust in you. This primer can prepare you for in-home issues that are hard to cover in a group class. Or you may just prefer training on your schedule in the privacy of your own home! Sometimes that one-on-one attention is what puppy (and owner!) needs to get started on the right path.
- If your puppy is under 16 weeks, I still strongly recommend taking my Social Puppy group class for learning time with your pup’s peers
- If you also have children under 3 years of age in the house, see Consultation for Expectant Families or Consultation for Families with Babies/Toddlers.
Fee: $90/hr for primer visit or single followup
