Puppy Training

A Puppy Playing with a Toy

One on One in Person or Virtual Coaching

For Puppies from 7 Weeks to 5 Months Old

Are you planning on adding a puppy to your family or have already added one? We can help with everything from picking the right breed for your lifestyle, helping them adjust to their new home and getting them started with all the tools to set them up for life long success.

Most puppies socialization window begins to close around 16 weeks. Current research shows the most important time for puppy socialization and exploration of novel things is the first three months of life. During this time puppies should be exposed to as many new people, animals, stimuli, and environments without causing fear or over-stimulation. For this reason, the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviour believes that it should be the standard of care for puppies to receive such socialization before they are fully vaccinated. We can help make this exposure positive while teaching you how to read their body language to ensure all experiences remain as positive as possible.

We understand that our trainers may be booking further out than expected, however, we do reserve space for current client and new puppy parents so don't hesitate to email us for more info.

Packages & Pricing

What to expect when you book with us

Each package will begin with a Comprehensive Consultation which is 60 minutes.

Consultations are designed so we can get to know you, your puppy & your routines and so we can build a plan to fit your lifestyle. 

When we meet, we start by looking at your current daily routine or help you develop one that best suits your lifestyle. From there we will answer your questions and discuss your current challenges to get a solid understanding of what is going on.

Next, we set some goals, management strategies and begin creating a custom training plan.

We finish by going over the training plan to ensure it is manageable for you, show demonstrations where needed, answer any last questions and go over any homework to get started on before receiving your follow up notes and training plan via email.

Before we finish, we will book in your follow up appointment(s) if not done previously. It is recommended to book follow ups 1-2 weeks apart. While your puppy is young, we recommend alternating sessions, one private session followed by an out and about session so we are able to fully assess and guide you and your puppy through safe and thorough socialization. 


After the consultation, you will receive notes on topics we discuss, step by step instructions for exercises, handouts and other educational tools. This will be sent within 3 days of your appointment unless otherwise specified.

We recommend writing down any questions before we arrive and also encourage taking notes, however, that is not required!


Follow ups

Follow ups are done in person and can be indoor or outdoor.

For puppies, follow-ups are generally scheduled 1 week apart to ensure consistency and so we can update plans as your puppy grows. We even see some puppy clients twice a week depending on which package you choose!
