Just welcomed a new puppy into your home? We offer private puppy lessons to address everything from housetraining and puppy nipping and biting to teaching basic foundation skills to help get your puppy started on the right paw. 

Private Puppy Training Package

Housetraining, socialization, early manners, bite inhibition, getting your puppy used to being handled, alone-time training, crate time training, puppy proofing your home, kids and puppy interactions…and the list goes on! These are the puppy essentials to successful puppy raising and teaching your puppy the life skills that are the building blocks to a well-mannered, well-adjusted and fun-to-be-around dog.
Early puppy training and socialization are important to nip those “bad” but normal puppy behaviors in the bud. But what if you don’t have time for group classes? Or maybe you’re at the end of your rope and need one-on-one help right away? Private training is the answer!
Lessons are arranged to work with your schedule, and are conducted at our Academy or in the comfort and convenience of your own home. We’ll cover everything you need to know to end the frustration of puppyhood and start enjoying your new family member.
You’ll discover how to address common problem puppy problems like nipping and biting, jumping on everyone, and chewing your stuff, and how to banish bad behaviors before they start. Your puppy will also learn basic cues like sit, down and come when called. And we’ll also get them started walking on a leash. 
As a bonus, you’ll also receive a free copy of the e-book, After You Get Your Puppy, written by internationally renowned animal behaviorist and dog trainer Dr. Ian Dunbar.
