|Puppy Kindergarten - Our most popular|
|service! Training can happen anytime between 8 |
weeks to 6 months of age, which is the most critical
development period for your dog. Our one-on-one,
two session Puppy Kindergarten program will teach
you and your family what to expect from, and how
to deal with the issues and behaviors your puppy
will demonstrate during this crucial time. At the
same time, we feel it is important to respect your
puppy and allow him to enjoy "puppyhood". Our
program teaches strategies for housebreaking,
feeding, play time, reprimanding, outdoor/indoor
activities, socialization, pack formation, and
dominance exercises. We also work on correcting
common puppy behaviors, such as nipping, biting,
chewing, and any other situations that come about
that are unique to your puppy.
|Basic Obedience - Training can begin at 6 months|
|of age. Our program teaches your dog essential |
commands, including sit, stay, down, come, heel
and wait. Time is also spent teaching your dog to
walk like a lady or gentleman on a leash, without
pulling or stopping. Once he passes his final exam,
your dog will graduate with a diploma from Doggy
Be Good! Basic Obedience is usually 4 to 5 sessions,
but may be longer if need be. Our fee is assessed
upon our free consultation.
|Behavior Modification - Correcting undesirable|
|behaviors, such as aggression problems, can make |
a world of difference in your home. Often times,
negative behaviors can be corrected with
dominance exercises and positive reinforcement.
Behavior modification will be based upon the needs
of your dog. Fees will be assessed accordingly.

dog prior to the infant's arrival and taking the
proper steps when baby comes home will ensure a
smooth transition for all.
