Our goal is to improve communication and to help strengthen your relationship with your dog!”
Puppy Socialization & Training
There is no better time to start working with your puppy than the moment they get home! Our puppy package consists of two parts: early socialization & basic obedience and behavior training.
Puppies go trough a socialization period from about 7 up to 16 weeks of age. This time is formative in your puppy’s development because it will shape their future personality and how they react to things in their environment. We’ll work on gently exposing your puppy to a variety of people, places, and situations in order to create positive associations.
Our basic obedience and behavior training service aims to set your puppy up for success for life at home. We’ll work on creating a potty routine, teaching appropriate chewing behaviors, alone time & crate time, recall skills, mastering basic obedience commands, and much much more.
Basic Obedience & Behavior Training

Dog Training & Support For Expecting Families
We offer private support for expecting families in order to help them prepare their dog for the changes that are bound to occur. We offer positive, practical, and fun solutions that will help integrate and include the family pup in the new household dynamic and routine once the baby arrives. Our goal is to help ease your transition from dog parents to baby parents with a dog.
Dog Training & Support For Families With A Toddler
We offer additional support for families with babies who are soon to be, or already are, crawling or walking. This period of unpredictability can be stressful for the family dog, as the toddler becomes increasingly mobile, vocal, and curious to experience their new world, especially with their hands and their mouths. Our goal is to offer insight and proactive options for some of the common challenges families with dogs experience during this time.
