Socialization. Enrichment. Training.

Our Puppy Professors (all certified trainers) build your puppy’s confidence and optimism through carefully crafted socialization experiences including noise desensitization, introduction to novelty, balance and proprioception activities, off leash puppy interactions, and more.  We will teach the puppies to regulate arousal through calming activities including boundary games, focus games and active rest.  Lastly, we will introduce marker based training to establish a learning foundation for basic skills like targeting, stationing, and capturing or shaping basic behaviors like attention to handler, sit, down, recall and more.

"The new bond and level of understanding that was built using the skills learned in the class completely changed our guardian/companion relationship.  Instead of fear and uncertainty, he now enthusiastically offers appropriate behaviors! I still have moments of complete surprise and delight as he continues to have flashes of new confidence and discovery! "
