Puppy Essentials

Puppy training and socialization

Age: 5 to 9 months
Basic Obedience

Puppy training helps your puppy to get off to the right start.

This program will teach your dog how training works (it’s not innate!), basic cues for everyday life, and provide an introduction to leash walking behaviors. Plus, puppies will be exposed to other people, environments, and dogs, which improves sociability and reduces reactivity. 

Our Partner Trainers mold and shape dogs’ behavior using positive reinforcement and science-based methods. Positive reinforcement uses reward-based techniques and establishes long term positive associations.

Socialization is an important aspect of a dog’s life.  With our program, your dog will learn social cues and boundaries and able to participate in fun, enriching group activities like hikes or day care.

Fun & Engaging

Training is fun and stimulating for your dog. Dogs gain confidence, learn new tricks, and are more engaged.
