Are you feeling excited but a little nervous about bringing your new puppy home soon?

Or are you already feeling the puppy blues, not sleeping at night, and tending to the scars on your hand during the day?

Raising a puppy is a lot of work, and sometimes it's hard to know how to keep up. You're busy cleaning up puddles in the corner behind the couch, all the while you also want to make sure that you're training your puppy well, so that she'll grow into that wonderful family member who comes along for the ride, but doesn’t steal food when your friends are over for dinner.

​This is why it is my goal to give you the best start possible! After all, puppy training is so much more than teaching your new family member to sit - it's about getting her ready for a lifelong journey with you.

And in our private puppy program we'll do just that.

The Puppy Program

 

In the 8 week puppy program you'll learn how to raise and train your pup throughout the first weeks and months with you. 

 

We'll meet in your home for private training sessions with your pup, so that you'll get our full attention during training and the certainty that we work on issues that are relevant to you and your puppy. After all, every puppy is different.

 

In our bi-weekly virtual group sessions we’ll give you the opportunity to ask questions without taking away from your training time, and discuss topics relating to raising and training your pup.

 

And you’ll get life-time access to our extensive online course so that you don't have to worry about taking any notes or sharing what you've learned with your partner or family. (You can check the course curriculum here.)

"Now, after the puppy program, I am not worried about taking Norman to other people's houses and am so grateful that Norman is so calm, patient and is able to entertain himself and understand basic commands.


I loved the focus on positive reinforcement, and the understanding of setting up Norman for success. And I very much appreciated how each session was personalized to Norman's needs. In the beginning he was very energetic and wild, and working on rewarding Norman's calm behaviours was a significant pay off."                                                       Kim and Norman
