Puppy Program

"Sophie’s ability to gently transform the zoomies into productive training time is simply astounding" - Matt (Clover's human)

Attention all new puppy owners! Our program is specifically designed for puppies aged 8 to 12 weeks, offering a comprehensive approach to their development.

By using positive reinforcement methods, housetraining doesn't need to be a nightmare, biting can be managed, and your puppy can develop confidence in novel settings. 

Our puppy program places a strong emphasis on socialization, recognizing that this critical period is the best time to expose puppies to a wide variety of people, animals, and experiences. Our program is designed to help puppies develop the confidence and social skills they need to become well-adjusted and happy adult dogs.

Through fun and engaging activities, such as playtime, obstacle courses, and interactive games, puppies are exposed to different sights, sounds, and sensations that help them develop confidence and social skills. We also provide opportunities for puppy owners to learn about puppy behavior, training techniques, and how to maintain a happy and healthy home environment.

What is lunchtime training?

During a lunchtime training session, the trainer takes your puppy for an hour to continue the work you've been doing together in lessons. This can be a good option for dog owners who are unable to do all the training themselves due to busy schedules. Here is a summary of what this type of training program involves:

  1. Customized training plan: Based on the premier puppy curriculum, the trainer will create a customized training plan tailored to the specific needs of the puppy.

  2. One-on-one training: The trainer will work with the puppy one-on-one for an hour at your home or in various public locations, focusing on the specific skills and behaviors outlined in the training plan.

  3. Positive reinforcement: The trainer will use positive reinforcement techniques only and make sure your puppy is feeling safe and confident.

  4. Progress monitoring: The trainer will monitor the puppy's progress and adjust the training plan as needed to ensure continued success.

  5. Report card: After each session, the trainer will provide the owner with feedback on the puppy's progress and will include a video or photo from that day's session.
