Puppy Program

(private lessons)

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

With the Premiere Puppy Program, housetraining doesn't need to be a nightmare, biting can be managed, and your puppy can develop the confidence they need. 

Why the Premiere Puppy Program?​

Positive Reinforcement, Force Free and Fear-Free methods

It is clear through the numerous studies that have been done over the past 50+ years, that using positive reinforcement is THE way to raise a happy and healthy pup. I personally believe force free and fear free methods which means throughout our time together, we will make sure your puppy is always comfortable.

Emphasis on Socialization

The 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. I've designed the program to help puppies develop the confidence and social skills they need to become well-adjusted and happy adult dogs.

Learn through Play

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. Using pattern games, we also teach the puppy to start focusing on YOU regardless of the environment. We want you to be the source of good things.

What will we learn?​

Owner Education

  • Normal Puppy Behavior

    • We will go over all the normal puppy behaviors and how to deal with them. This includes housetraining, crate training (if desired), chewing, biting, etc

  • Communication

    • You might be surprised to know that the majority of dog owners don't understand canine body language. Communication is not one sided. We must be able to read their body language as much as they need to understand what we are asking of them.

  • Socialization

    • There is a lot of misconceptions about socialization. It is not about the quanitity of dogs and people your puppy meets, but instead it is the quality of new interactions and how you interact together. ​

Puppy Education​​

  • Common behaviors we may work on:

    • Name

    • Sit​

    • Down

    • Settle

    • Drop it

    • Walking on leash

  • Field Trips

    • Later on during our time together, we will venture out in the REAL WORLD to work on how to navigate challenges with your puppy.
