Puppies are the most receptive to training, and the earlier we start, the better. Puppies are learning about the world even before they are born, and during the first six weeks of their life they go through enormous brain growth. By the time you get your puppy at about eight weeks of age, his most flexible learning period is almost over. That means we are battling against the clock to take advantage of puppy’s most important behavioural developmental period.

Getting started, even before you get puppy, and continuing puppy’s education, especially through his first year, will help your puppy grow and develop into a treasured family member and companion. 

Puppy Package:

Four 90 minute sessions in your own home and out & about will set you and your puppy up for the best start in your lives together. 

The first session will be our Puppy Session which covers everything you need to survive puppyhood, providing an in-depth covering of the most important topics. 

Three subsequent sessions, taken no more than two weeks apart from one another, will advance on these topics helping you develop skills to help your puppy.

Pre-Puppy Session:

Being a prepared pet owner is half the battle so this session will advise you on puppy choice, puppy source, how to set-up so you are ready for puppy, and managing the first few days in their new home. Putting thought and preparation into welcoming a puppy into your home will get you both off to the best start.

  • you will receive a comprehensive guide to preparing for your puppy, reflecting out discussions during your session

Puppy Session:

Most puppy owners are instructed to essentially isolate their puppies when they first come home, to ensure their vaccination protection is established. But, this is the most important learning period of your puppy’s life, and there can be serious implications to your dog’s behaviour, should we not take advantage of puppy’s growing brain.
This session is for puppies who are not yet fully vaccinated. It’s best to book this session as soon after puppy comes home as possible.
