Puppy Training Classes
Puppy Socialization and Training – The best time and money you will spend on a new puppy will be on training and socialization. With one-on-one instruction in your home, we can customize the lessons to address the unique needs of each client with respect to their puppy. In order to meet the critical need for early socialization with other puppies, I encourage you to also attend the Puppy Play & Train group class.
The fee for 6 sessions is $420, or if you want just one consultation visit to help you get ready for your new puppy, the fee is $85.* Contact Lisa to arrange a meeting time.
*Cancellations made less than 24 hours in advance of the scheduled meeting time will be charged as a session.
PUPPY BOARD & TRAIN & SOCIALIZE
Those first weeks and months of a dog’s life are critical in terms of what they learn about the world they live in. Leaving your puppy at this stage in his or her life is not optimal, but may be necessary. Lisa takes puppies into her home where they will be given much love, and training so that they return to their families smarter and more confident than when they left. The intent is to not only give the puppies the best possible experience, but to give the owners peace of mind knowing that their new puppies are safe and in good hands.
Fees are $85 per day and an additional $40 for overnight stays. For more information and arrangements, contact Lisa.
Puppy Play & Train – The only way puppies acquire the social skills necessary to grow into dogs that safely interact with other dogs, and even enjoy the company of other dogs, is by interacting as puppies with other puppies. They do this in play, which is an important part of this on-going class. We make sure all puppies are safe and do not have bad experiences. We will also cover some basic training and things you need to know to get your puppy off to the best possible start. (Proof of at least one Distemper-Adenovirus 2-Parvo (DAP)vaccine or equivalent a minimum of 10 days prior to attendance required.)

Just because your dog looks like an adult doesn’t mean he or she is one yet! It’s so important that the training and socializing continue, only now we’re dealing with some very real physical changes that translate into behavioral changes as well – and not necessarily for the better! This single class is a photo and video presentation for dog parents and will be followed by the opportunity for outdoor training and socializing classes. This entertaining presentation teaches you to understand what dogs are saying through body language, what appropriate play looks like, what features to look for when it’s not all about fun, when to intervene, how to intervene, and how to work with a dog that is out of his or her mind with excitement around other dogs. You will leave with very specific guidelines for training that we will work on together if you choose to participate in the outdoor training and socialization classes. We will also discuss the challenges and solutions of training when your dog is distracted. If you don’t intend to take the outdoor class, you will still leave with lots of useful and relevant information. So please join us either way! Training and socializing class information and registration will be provided when you attend this class.
