When to start
training a puppy.
Puppies experience their primary socialization period up to 14 weeks of age. While they can learn at any stage, the early experiences will have a significant positive impact. Now is the time to start creating good habits that will last a lifetime.
You may not know where to begin. That’s perfectly okay. We can start with a video session to outline your pet’s needs and a few goals, along with some best practices for puppies during each life stage. We will walk you through a lesson specifically tailored to your goals. We do this by being focused on a specific topic, with hands-on exercises and actionable help during every step of the process.
After a session, you will come away with more information about your puppy’s development timeline, specific exercises, and hopefully a game plan. You will have resources developed from the session itself, as well as articles/education tips that can help
Our philosophy is to give you the best help you can in bite-sized pieces. Our team will help you with reward-based training strategies that are personalized for you and your puppy, not just for the “average” puppy.
Each pet is unique. Here’s one example.
Session 1: Come when called (with a focus on speed and motivation).
Session 2: Come when called continued, adding distance and distractions.
Session 3: Focus on sit & stay, making sure we keeping all those paws still!
Session 4: Continuing stay training while the pet parent moves away and does household tasks (a previous pain-point).
