Puppy Training

We offer puppy training, and a whole lot more. Consider us your coach starting as early as before you bring your "little guy or girl" home.

Importance of Early Puppy Training

For a puppy, imprinting begins with each new experience. Imprinting helps to determine just what type of dog your puppy grows into as an adult. Often owners unintentionally imprint fear in place of curiosity, sensitivity in place of resilience and dependence in place of confidence and boldness.


Just as we want our children to grow into adults who confidently go out into the world, the same is true with our dogs. Yet the second most common reason people bring us their dogs for training is aggression. Aggression towards people and/ or other dogs. This aggression typically comes out as the dog goes through puberty (7 to 14 months old). In most cases the insecurity has been imprinted when they were puppies.

Training Programs for Puppies

As a general rule the younger the puppy, the slower the training process.  We have created individual training modules based on breed, personality, and age related abilities.


We have one module for young puppies (Kindergarten) and 4 modules for older puppies (16 weeks+). For most of the puppies programs we recommend two weeks in-between each module starting with Puppy Level I.   


The modules all include 5 days of comprehensive training at our training center. Puppies can be dropped off for the day (Day School option), left with us for the 5 days (board and train option) or come to school during the day and go home with a trainer (Home Care option).
