Puppy Dog Training Services

Our Puppy Raising Philosophy

Puppyhood is the most important time in your dog's life. She's learning more about herself, people, other dogs and the world outside than she ever will again. Your puppy will never again be so open to outside influence. Early intervention can nip many behavior problems in the bud and make the difference between a problem dog and a beloved companion.

Our puppy program is far more than a miniature version of an adult obedience class; it's your chance to help your puppy grow into the dog you'll want to live with.

At the moment, puppy classes are closed to new registration. We will make an announcement when space becomes available again.


Boarding School for Puppies Aged 8-16 weeks

Forging Good Habits That Last a Lifetime

$4000 for four weeks of board and train and four weeks of Puppy Start Right Preschool.

Give your puppy the best possible start in life with our board and train program. We take your puppy into our own home for four weeks of intensive socialization. learning and character building.

We understand that raising a puppy is not as easy as living with a fully trained adult dog! If you're feeling overwhelmed by the time commitment, patience, energy and close supervision puppies require, we can help.

Topics may include:
  • house training
  • ringing a bell to signal potty time
  • separation anxiety prevention
  • sound sensitivity/noise phobia prevention
  • desensitization to grooming and vet visits
  • preventing common aggressive behaviors
  • good greeting behavior
  • socialization to humans and dogs
  • puppy biting and mouthing
  • chewing and destructive behavior
  • obedience commands including sit, down, come when called, leave it and drop it
  • introduction to loose leash walking and off-leash heel
  • increasing attention span.

Four weeks is a long time for puppies to be away from their families! We encourage our students to visit their puppies frequently and take them home for brief periods to ensure proper bonding.
