Puppy Life Skills

Your puppy will become your greatest confidant and a comforting, grounding support. Whether your puppy grows to be your service dog or your favorite adventure partner, your mutual relationship starts here.

Is this not yet the magical relationship you envisioned? Puppyhood can be a challenging as well as an exciting time. You have high hopes and a lot of emotion invested in this little puppy body. How can the same creature be so beautiful and peaceful when sleeping and also a whirlwind of needle teeth that seems to need something from you at every moment?

Puppyhood is full of learning, playing, and making mistakes. Let’s work together to teach your puppy to learn from those mistakes and make better choices. Teach your puppy to be excited to learn new things and to face the world with confidence and creativity. Learn how to listen to your individual dog’s needs and help them listen to yours.

This program will support you and your puppy on your journey. We provide preventative maintenance and custom troubleshooting to tackle puppy antics, like nipping and jumping. We cultivate crate comfort, house manners, and ideas to channel all that puppy energy. We teach relaxation skills and handling exercises to make vet visits, grooming, and home health checks a stress free experience. Working together brings out the best in both of you.

It all starts with a custom consultation…

Get in touch to schedule your custom consult today!

While we’re happy to answer general questions via email or phone, our initial consult dives much deeper.

The initial consultation allows us to get to know each other, discuss your short term and long-term training goals, and work through any questions you may have about training methods. We will create a tailored training plan and give you some training and management tips to help right away. We will then set up a lesson package to move forward.

Initial Consultations are held virtually.

Virtual Consults cost $175
