Puppy Head Start Training

Puppy and Owner bonding

Set your new puppy up for success!

Feeling a bit overwhelmed by your new puppy? Is this your first time raising a puppy or has it been years since you raised a puppy?

Your puppy’s critical socialization period ends around age 16 weeks. Our behavior consultants will get your puppy off on the right paw with our Puppy Head Start Training!

Have a puppy who is already more than 16 weeks old, or new teen or adult dog?  Our Problem Prevention Service can help you avoid problems even if your dog may not have had the perfect start in puppyhood.  

Our Puppy Head Start Training includes three months of email and phone support to help with any issues as your puppy matures!  Consultations are performed in your home and will help you with issues such as:

  • Socialization, what does this really mean, and how and when should I do it?
  • Teaching puppies not to bite
  • House training
  • Crate training
  • Body handling
  • Alone training
  • Finding the best puppy kindergarten and play groups
Prevent bad behavior before it starts!

Prevent bad behavior before it starts!

I was a bit out of my comfort zone when I adopted my first large breed, high energy puppy! Actually, that's an understatement. It was more a "what have I done!" kind of thing. Addressing her biting, chewing and jumping behaviors was a lot different and more urgent than with the small dogs I was used to. I wanted to be sure I was addressing all of my puppy's needs in a proper and positive way. Peggy came to my home, evaluated my setting and my puppy, and left me with the knowledge, resources and confidence I needed to raise a beautifully trained dog!
