Start your puppy off on the right paw! The sooner you do, the better! First, I’ll start off by helping you establish yourself as your puppy’s leader so that your puppy can look to you for guidance and see you as a kind benevolent leader. (Please see, Why You Should Train Your Dog.) I will help you with housebreaking and crate training, puppy proofing your home, grooming care, proper chewing and socialization. I will teach you how to train your puppy to perform basic obedience cues like sit, down, here, stay, loose leash walking and much more. You will learn how to get rid of common puppy problem behaviors as well as how to prevent them. I will advise on proper nutrition, exercise and play, massage for relaxation and much more. If you have child, we will address the child and dog relationship so that a healthy, respectful bond is developed between the two.
