JUMP START PROGRAMS
I do the heavy lifting ◆ Direct training ◆ Alternative to board and train
Life is hectic. Your time is precious. You love your pup, but training is way down on life's to-do list. I get it, and I can help.
Leave the heavy lifting to a certified professional through hands-on, direct training with your pup in your own home. Confidently check off "train the dog" from your to-do list. I'll take it from there!

HOW IT WORKS
These programs are for teaching beginning skills to puppies 4-6 months old. Dogs must be perfectly happy with strangers in the home.
The first step is to book a kick-off lesson in your home. We will customize a program for your specific goals and get started with training.
Direct Training with Your Dog
During the program, I come to your home twice per week for hands-on, direct practice sessions with your pup. Each practice session is 40-45 minutes. Humans do not need to be home.
Transfer Lessons with You
At the end of the program, I meet with you in a transfer lesson where I teach you the skills to maintain your dog's training. I may suggest additional transfer lessons for longer programs.
One-hour lesson in your home is booked first. We will customize and book a specific program for your pup (options below), and we'll get started with training.
