Puppy training is the foundation of your dog’s long-term success. Establishing communication between you and your puppy is critical for learning to occur. Your puppy does not speak any verbal language, but it does communicate with you.

Too often we unknowingly and unintentionally reinforce the behaviors we don’t like in our dogs. You and your puppy must learn how to communicate in a way the puppy understands. Once you both realize that, you will be able to achieve your goals for your puppy and the adult dog you deserve and want in the future. 

Puppy training is about preventing problem behaviors from forming, more than it is about fixing problems.

Taking a proactive approach to providing your puppy with proper training is essential to creating the success of the dog your puppy will become. However, we do know puppies can quickly turn into terrors in your home, Puppy training can help extinguish quickly formed undesired behaviors such as jumping, nipping/biting, accidents in the house, chewing, and running away from owners, pulling on the leash, and more.

What Will My Puppy Learn?

During puppy training, most importantly your puppy will learn how to learn. We will establish that understanding through marker training. Learning from a human is not a natural or instinctual trait in dogs. Your puppy must learn how to learn. Engagement is the next step that runs in parallel with marker training.

We will then use that engagement to create the new behaviors by teaching your puppy fundamental obedience tasks, such as:

  • Name association
  • Recall
  • Sit
  • Down
  • Place
  • and walking on a leash with manners.


This process will automatically start extinguishing some of those undesired behaviors. Once we establish how to learn, followed by teaching new behaviors, we then begin to train those new behaviors to be adapted to everyday life. Our goal is to have the newly created behaviors be a way for you and your puppy to be successful at building a bond in your lives ahead.
