All About Puppy

Start your puppy off on the right path with life skills training and behavior problem prevention.

Are You Worried About Your Puppy’s Behavior?

Your puppy might be chewing everything in sight, including you – or maybe potty training isn’t going as well as you hoped. We’ll guide you in addressing everyday challenges like chew and potty training. We’ll also teach you how to prevent things like on-leash reactivity, separation anxiety, resource guarding, and body handling sensitivity. Regardless of what you’re struggling with, our puppy packages will give you the tools and confidence to raise a confident puppy.

Our puppy packages prioritize adequate socialization and exercises to prevent fear-related problems from occurring in the future.

Your dog can learn skills like “sit” and “down” anytime. We only have a narrow window of time to teach them that the world is safe. During this “sensitive period,” called socialization, (3-16 weeks), they must have positive experiences with all the things they may encounter as an adult; otherwise, they can develop fear-based behavior challenges later in life.

To learn more about the importance of adequate socialization, please read the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) position statement on puppy socialization here.
