Puppy raising priorities for 8-15 weeks ◆ Beginning skills for 4-6 months

The early days with your baby puppy are so incredibly important. Time truly is of the essence. During this introductory package, I will guide you through the most important puppy raising priorities for puppies 8-15 weeks old:

  • Socialization and fear prevention

  • Meeting new people and dogs

  • Surviving puppy nipping

  • Body handling

  • Potty training and daily routines

  • Crate training

  • Preventing aggression over food and toys

  • Toothbrushing and grooming intro

This package starts with an initial remote video consult (90 minutes) where we will address socialization, potty training, nipping, and your immediate puppy raising questions. Then, we will meet at your home for 2 in-person lessons (45 minutes each) where I will guide you through the rest!

Jump start programs are for teaching beginning skills to puppies 4-6 months old. I do the heavy lifting through hands-on, direct training with your pup in your own home, and transfer lessons with you. These programs start with a kick-off lesson with you and your pup. Examples of skills that can be covered include:

  • Sit and down

  • Stay

  • Coming when called

  • Reducing jumping to greet

  • Leave it

  • Drop it

  • Settling on a mat or bed

  • Beginning leash walking
