Puppy Training

6 Sessions

$700

Mason will come to your home once every TWO weeks for an hour to an hour and a half to work one-on-one with you on everything you need to know about puppy-hood. The first 8 – 16 weeks of a pups life are some of the most crucial times in developing a well rounded adult dog and we are in charge of it! We will cover:

  • The importance and how to socialize them
  • Potty training
  • Crate training
  • Building confidence and independence
  • What to expect in the months as they grow
  • Puppy biting
  • Ways to expel energy and teach them how to regulate it
  • How and when to feed
  • Heel / Leash Walking
  • Basic commands: “Sit” / “Stay,” “Come,” and “Place” / “Stay”

We finish this program with a field trip to your favorite social spot, whether that be a forest preserve or Home Depot, to put your pup’s new skills to the test!

Upon successfully completing this program, a certification of completion is provided.

The Basics!

Mason will come to your home once a week for an hour to an hour and a half to work one-on-one with you on the four most important behaviors for pet dogs:

  • “Sit”/”Stay”
  • “Place”/”Stay”
  • “Come”
  • Heel / Loose Leash Walking

You will both work as if your dog knows absolutely nothing. Starting with clicker training and food, we will achieve reliability with these commands. Then, we will work on proofing them in real world situations so your dog actually listens to you in areas you need it most!
