Puppy Primer


Is your puppy driving you crazy, but is too young to have had enough shots to safely be in a public environment?  We can help.  We will come to your house during that 4-6 week period before you can start puppy kindergarten.  Puppies are ready to learn lots of skills at this age.  We can help you with positive redirection of all that excess energy, and management of the environment, so it can be a fun time for the whole family.

Class length: 4 visits
