Puppy obedience training establishes a positive beginning for your new canine companion. We build the foundation in puppy boot camp by addressing issues such as housebreaking, basic obedience, etiquette, and socialization.
We also educate you, the owner, on how to manage puppy behavior, preventing or eliminating bad behaviors like mouthing, play biting, jumping, or nuisance barking.
Our puppy boot camp creates an environment that values proper etiquette and reinforces inherent strengths. We take our puppy camp students on weekly field trips to public and private training sites where they participate in puppy obedience training, socialization, and obstacle courses.
Training a puppy requires the skills, knowledge, and time to build the foundation of good behavior; however, the time and training established in the puppy stage will last a lifetime.
Puppy Camp Level I. - 4 Weeks ($2400)
This program includes: Puppy obedience training (imprinting), crate training, socialization, confidence building, and field trips.

Puppy Camp Level II. - 8 Weeks ($4400)
This program includes: Puppy obedience training, behavior modification, crate training, socialization, confidence building, and field trips.
