Perfect Start Puppy School
Get started with your best paw forward!
Set your puppy up for success with our Perfect Start Puppy School. In this comprehensive 6 week program we teach you how to raise a calm, attentive and well mannered dog. A puppy specialist trainer will guide you every step of the way in raising a bouncy puppy to your dream dog. In addition to the 7+ hours of private lessons in your home, you will also receive a lifetime of support via email and phone.
The Perfect Start Puppy School covers everything from basic obedience (sit, down, stand, stays, come, mat training, drop it), animal learning theory, cooperative care and preventing common behaviour problems. It is much more comprehensive than group puppy schools and helps you set your puppy up to be happy and well-mannered.
The first session is 90-120mins and the remaining 5 sessions are 60mins. All sessions are in the comfort of your own home and include detailed notes and ongoing email/phone support on the topics covered.
Cost of the full puppy school is $899 if you are within our service area. If you are just after a couple of sessions of puppy training to get started? The cost is $240 for an initial consult (90-120mins) and $150 for follow ups (60mins).
Note: there is no obligation to do the whole private puppy school and you can pick and choose whatever interests you. The topics listed are a guide to the things we believe are important in puppy raising.
