Puppy Manners and Behavioral Wellness Program

Did you just bring a new puppy home? Are you wondering how you are going to live through the puppy stages? It is 100% normal to be freaking out- Raising a puppy is hard!  But getting through puppyhood doesn’t need to cause too many grey hairs if you have a step-by-step program to make sure you raise a calm, confident, and friendly member of doggie society.

The program focuses on:

~ potty training
~ crate training
~ biting/mouthing/nipping
~ jumping
~ basic commands
~ interaction with children
~ chewing and destruction
~ barking
~ leash walking
~ front door manners
~ and impulse control behaviors

Not only will your puppy learn good manners, you will learn how to train your puppy calmly and confidently and make it fun for everyone involved. With knowledge and experience working with a variety of behavioral issues, I enjoy helping every puppy reach his or her full potential. As a VSPDT certified trainer, you can rest assured that I use and teach force-free, pain-free techniques that are effective in helping your dog fit happily and harmoniously into your life. No need for leash-jerks, prong collars, choke chains, shock collars or other forceful, painful methods.

All of my puppy sessions will be online.

Your first session is 75-90 minutes long, and additional sessions are typically 50-60 minutes.  All sessions include a lesson plan, plus a detailed overview of your homework after each meeting. I also offer limited in-home appointments if you live in Minnetonka, Wayzata, Plymouth, Medina, Hopkins, or St. Louis Park.

1st Online Session: $195
Additional Online Sessions: $125

**I am not taking any new clients until August 2021. However, if you reserve an appointment below, I will let you know as soon as I have an opening before then. 

*The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior has recommended starting puppy training as early as 8-weeks old.

Please note that because this is not a ‘desk job’ and I am often in appointments, it may take up to 36-48 hours to return your correspondence. I typically respond in the mornings between 9am-12pm.
