Puppy Boot Camp

Getting your puppy started out on the right track is critically important. What they learn in the first weeks and months of their life lays the foundation for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, many owners do not have the time to teach their puppies what they need to learn or simply have a puppy they discover they are not equipped to handle. 

Our puppy program focuses on giving puppies the skills they need for the rest of their life so they can grow into confident, well-behaved, and well-adjusted adults. People often think obedience commands (like "sit" and "down") make up the most important part of training - nope! In addition to simple commands, puppies also need to learn how to pay attention to humans, learn to look for information from humans, learn to interact appropriately with the world, and discover that learning is fun!  Here are some concepts we work on with most puppies during this 3 or 4 week program:

  • attention
  • impulse control
  • door manners
  • how to offer behaviors
  • good grooming manners (nail cutting, brushing)
  • name recognition
  • confidence building
  • recall foundations
  • basic obedience commands (sit, down, place)
  • crate training
  • leash manners
