Our Puppy Training Method

Puppies learn new things very quickly! We believe that this critical developmental period is the best time to build a foundation of good behaviour while at the same time creating a strong bond between you and your puppy.

Our training plan is designed to create good canine citizens and avoid major behavioral problems before they start. We reinforce good, positive behaviors, and prevent negative or undesirable habits, while teaching puppies a communication system that gives you control when you need it. We use food, treats, toys, and praise as rewards, and remove these rewards when undesirable behaviour is present.  We do not use physical punishment of any kind.

We will help your puppy learn basic obedience skills such as:

  • Sit
  • Down
  • Stand
  • Stay/Wait
  • Take/Drop/Leave It
  • Recall
  • Loose-leash walking
  • Crate training
  • House training

We will help you learn to:

  • Recognize what motivates your puppy
  • Strategies to use when your dog is having difficulty navigating situations
  • Demonstrate and reinforce calm behaviour
