I know you love your puppy. I also know you have no interest in becoming a part-time dog trainer! There's a lot for your puppy to learn even after the early puppy days. Leave the heavy lifting to a certified professional through a Puppy Board & Train program.

Your puppy will stay with me at my home, learn beginning skills and manners, and get unlimited love and cuddles while entrusted in my care. These programs are for puppies 16 weeks and up, and are customized for your pup and your goals. Examples of skills your puppy can learn are:

  • Sit and down

  • Stay

  • Coming when called

  • Reducing jumping to greet

  • Body handling and cooperative care

  • Leave it

  • Drop it

  • Settling on a mat or bed

  • Beginning leash walking

  • Fear prevention activities
