Our In-Home Good Start Puppy Package consists of 5 hours of private training.   Usually this consists of 4 one hour consultations in your home and a 1 hour session out in public.

Virtual live on-line is also being offered to assist those who aren’t able to take their puppy out.  There is much I can help you with this way, so please don’t hesitate to inquire about this way of learning.

A New PuppyJune '09 puppies 095

Getting a puppy or any new dog is very exciting. Your dog starts learning the minute he enters your home.  These early weeks are often overlooked as being the most formative in a dog’s life.  Bad habits that develop at this stage can persist into adulthood.   Learn how to make the most of those crucial first days of puppy-hood.  We cover anything and everything you will need to start off on the right foot.

Any concerns or questions you may have will be addressed in the first consultation and you will be provided with a package (usually thru e-mail) containing handouts for the material covered in your sessions.
