Introductory Puppy Training
For puppies between 10 and 20 weeks old.
It’s never too early to start training! And whether you know it or not, whenever you are with your puppy, you are training. We can help you make sure you are training good behaviors from the start.
Our program can help eliminate and manage puppy behaviors such as soiling in the house, chewing, nipping and jumping. These are natural puppy behaviors, but we can teach you how to properly manage your puppy during this critical developmental period.
You choose one of the options below to train your puppy.
Board & Train
Your puppy stays here overnight for the duration of this 5-day program, Monday – Friday. Drop off Monday morning and turnover is scheduled on Friday here, at your home or in a public setting. Your puppy is home with you on the weekend.
** Option: add an extra week of training for more socialization, confidence building, and exposure during field trips in the community.
Day & Train
A 2-week day school program, Tue – Thu for 2 consecutive weeks as available. Your puppy trains during the day and is home with you overnight.
Drop off at the facility in Evington each morning and pick up that afternoon. A lesson is scheduled at pick up each Thursday.
Individual lessons to teach you how to train your puppy.
Up to 4 1-hour lessons. Meet here at the facility in Evington with the option of your last lesson in the community.
