    PUPPY SCHOOL (16 weeks - 9 months old) - On leash

    This program is designed for the family who wants their puppy to be well-mannered and well-behaved at home and out in public but doesn’t have the time for daily training sessions or the patience to teach the commands. You’ll have a puppy who is an on leash rockstar, even with distractions!

    Having more commands, a longer stay with us and lessons in your home will give you a puppy that’s trained faster and more reliably, with less effort on your part. This program will give you the commands you need for your dog to listen and be well behaved everywhere.

    Your puppy will stay with us for 12 days. In addition to training here, we’ll also do “field trip training” where we’ll take your puppy to public locations (like parks and other dog friendly
    locations) so they’re reliable around lots of everyday life distractions, and is polite when out in public. We’ll even send you photo and video updates during training!

    Half way through the 12 days you’ll come by for a visit so we can start training you, too. Then at the end of the 12 days we’ll bring your puppy home to you and have another lesson together.

    This program also includes unlimited lessons here, anytime you need any extra help, a 2 day “Board and Play” refresher training, as well as our unique guarantee.

    PERFECT PUPPY

    This program is designed for the family that is getting a new puppy and knows they want to have an absolutely awesome rock star of a dog - both on and off-leash!

    Your puppy will come stay with us twice. The first time between 8 and 16 weeks (the earlier the better!) so we can start them off on the right paw. During the first week long stay, we’ll start off teaching your puppy what they need to know right away for good manners and obedience in your home.

    We’ll have another lesson to make sure everything is still going well and help you with any issues or new goals you may have (such as continuing to house train your puppy reliably). We are available for phone and email support through the puppy’s whole first year so you can reach out to us with any questions as the puppy grows and develops.

    At the end of the program, we will teach you how to maintain the training and have fun doing it!

    Later, when the puppy is around 6 months old, your puppy will come back to us for 14 days to continue training to be reliable both on and off leash and since dogs spend most of their time off leash, that’s important! With this program you are getting the huge benefit of having us by your side for your dog’s whole first year!
