Puppy Training

With several options available to help you train your puppy, you can choose the one that best meets your needs and family situation. Below is an overview of all the options. For more detailed information, please click on the menu at the left.


Private Lessons

Choose private lessons if you'd like to customize your puppy training to fit your schedule, family and puppy's needs.


Day Training

Enjoy evenings and weekends with your puppy while leaving his/her socialization and training needs to me during the weekdays.


Board and Train

If your busy schedule makes it difficult to properly socialize and train your puppy, this option may be ideal.  Your puppy comes and lives in my home and we work on socialization, crate training, house manners, basic training, etc.  You thereby ensure your puppy gets the great start he/she needs in order to develop into a wonderful family member without the huge time investment this requires.


Pre-Puppy Consultations

It's never too early to get some guidance. We can meet before you get your puppy to discuss all the basics - from what kind of puppy to consider if you aren't sure yet, to supplies you'll need, to training and socialization.


Group Classes

Group puppy classes can also be a great way to start socializing your puppy to other dogs and people. We found a location and will be offering group classes starting in July 2017! Please contact me for more information. In the meantime, you can find group class options at


AKC Canine Good Citizen Training

There is a lot to do to prepare for the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test. I can help you with the initial training as well as the finishing touches and proofing to prepare you and your dog for the 10-part CGC test.


Please note: While my focus is on working with dogs up to 6 months of age, I also enjoy working with older puppies and dogs who are “young at heart” on a case by case basis. Feel free to contact me to discuss your puppy or dog training needs.
