Get the one-on-one help you need to resolve a specific puppy problem you can’t seem to crack.

All dogs have a very narrow window of time to learn that the world is a safe and wonderful place. During this “critical period” (3-18 weeks), they must have positive experiences with all the things they may encounter as an adult, otherwise, they can develop fear and aggression-based problems later in life.

The puppy foundations program will give you the tools necessary to ensure that we do everything we can to raise a confident puppy who loves people and other animals, doesn’t hurt others with his teeth, and enjoys body handling!

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
