People often wonder when the best time is to start training their puppy. Training should take place immediately. Don't wait for bad behavior to occur before you call a dog trainer. Knowing what to do as your puppy grows and transitions from one stage to another will help you avoid future problems.

A small group class for puppies up to 6 months old that have completed all of their vaccinations. Canine interactions for puppies are extremely important. Puppies who are not socialized with dogs may lack an understanding of "dog language" and become fearful or defensive. We ensure each puppy has a positive experience by never overwhelming them and matching up personalities that promote happy and appropriate play.
"Jennifer is the perfect trainer for our sweet but shy Labradoodle puppy. She is so patient and really cares about helping our dog get over some of her anxiety issues. Her technique in training is through positive reinforcement which our dog really responds to well. Our dog was able to sit and stay just after one session! Jen also believes it is important to involve our six-year old daughter in some of the training sessions. This has resulted in the dog respecting our daughter, and our daughter gaining more responsibility with the dog."
