NEW! Jump Start Puppy
Get your puppy off on the right paw by getting started in Jump Start Puppy sessions!
These learning, enrichment and socialization sessions are specially designed to start working right away with you and your puppy on the immediate issues of:
Nipping and Biting
Walking on Leash
Puppy Socialization and More!
We provide your puppy a safe and comfortable place to explore, have essential enrichment opportunities, socialize with other young puppies, and interact with different humans, all supervised by our puppy behavior experts. Enrichment, through exposure to novel objects, sounds, textures, noises, etc., is critical during your puppy's sensitive socialization period (3 weeks until about 14 weeks). Starting as early as you can will help your puppy build confidence and lifelong social and foundation skills.
Experienced and certified professional trainers versed in training good behaviors and addressing those "bad" but very normal puppy behaviors will be available to answer questions and discuss important puppy training advice and tips. As you watch your puppy play and interact with other puppies during the session, you will learn valuable information about puppy play styles, appropriate and inappropriate play, and dog body language. Helpful puppy handouts are available to take home with you. Don’t miss out on this opportunity!
