For Puppies from 7 Weeks to 5 Months Old

Are you considering adding a furry friend to your family or have you already brought one home? Our services cover everything from selecting the perfect breed for your lifestyle to assisting with their seamless adjustment to their new home. We provide essential tools to set you and your puppy up for a lifetime of positive experiences and success.

Most puppies socialization window begins to close anywhere from around 12-16 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 safe and positive while teaching you how to read their body language to ensure all experiences remain as positive as possible.

What to expect

Each new client begins with a comprehensive consultation/planning session which is generally around 60 minutes.

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

When we meet, we start by looking at your dog’s daily routine and see if we need to make any adjustments. From there we will 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 to begin working towards your goals.

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 discuss follow up options if not done previously. It is recommended to book follow ups 1-2 weeks apart to ensure consistency and success in your training.

After your session, you will receive a training plan with step by step instructions, handouts and other educational tools. This will be sent within 5-10 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. Virtual follow ups are also available.

Your first follow up is generally booked 1 week after your consultation.

Additional follow-up lessons are generally scheduled 1-2 weeks apart for puppies & basic manners

(potty training, recall. leash manners, door manners, etc)

They are great for those of you who prefer hands on help with the implementation of the training plan, have multiple skills to work on, refining your dog training skills or keeping on track with your training plan with pre-booked appointments.
