In Home (on the Patio!) Puppy Training

For Puppies up to one year old

Your in-home outdoor family training sessions with the Puppy Professor will ensure your puppy receives consistent and clear information while the humans keep an appropriate social distance.   It also helps each family member develop their own strong bond with the puppy.  Your family is busy! We work with your schedule to customize a program that fits your lifestyle and we do not require that all members be present at all sessions.

 

Here are a few things we help teach your puppy:

  • Establish good communication

  • Reduce reprimands and scolding

  • Happy and quiet in the crate

  • Signal when he needs to "go"

  • Sit, lie down, come and stay “go to bed” and more

  • Relax and settle

  • Greeting without jumping

  • Loose leash walking

 

PLUS end nipping and chasing, chewing, stealing and other undesirable behaviors with problem-solving and management.

Private Training Via Zoom Video Consultations

New Puppy? Or need help with a new rescue or a pup with some struggles? Our private video conference (via Zoom video conferencing) will help! Our conference will identify specific challenges and training goals and address them.  Conferences will include live or video demos with my dog and will provide real-time coaching for you and your pup. Fun, efficient and easy! 

Too much togetherness?

Building Independence in a Pandemic

One hour Zoom Workshop/$25

Thanks to the pandemic, the new norm for our dogs is to be with us ALL OF THE TIME.  We are seeing more and more puppies and adult dogs (and their people!) becoming overtired and stressed due to lack of separation. A behaviorally healthy pup should be able to relax when alone.  This is a learned skill.  

Join us for information, live demos and discussion on independence training and the benefits of creating alone-time for your pups.  We will also discuss strategies to help your pup if he is already "over attached", explain what separation anxiety looks like, how to avoid it through management and training, and regardless of a pandemic, what independence games every pet parent should know and practice.

This workshop is particularly important for puppies and maturing dogs under two years of age.

The video series teaches you games to play with your dog that promote

connection to you and disengagement from that ever so
