Post-Grad Puppy Programs

After completing the Top Dog SF Puppy Head Start program, your pup has the option to fully immerse themselves with the Top Dogs of SF! We offer two week training programs designed to help your puppy succeed whether it be learning how to be an urban pup with outdoor training adventures or in the big leagues learning how to socialize properly with all different types, ages and sizes of dogs at our private Doggie Ranch!

Top Dogger in the Big City

After your puppy graduates our Puppy Head Start Program, they can learn how to be a Top Dogger out and about in the Big City! This is a two week training program specifically for puppy graduates in their next step in acclimating to the real world. This program includes outdoor training with our certified trainers! Puppies will learn how to acclimate and thrive with the hustle and bustle of city life. We customize your puppy’s training based on your puppy’s vaccine schedule and level of safe exposure.

They will be trained on the sights, sounds and smells of the urban environment. We will work on walking skills, recall (coming when called off leash), anti-scavenging, anti-jumping, polite greetings (with people and kids) and fear prevention skills, riding in cars among many other invaluable life skills. These outdoor adventures will take place in public areas, whether it be teaching proper manners and etiquette at cafes, businesses and preventing fear of buses, trains, skateboards and motorcycling, Top Dog SF has you and your pup covered!
