PREPARING YOUR PUP FOR BIG CITY LIVING!

We offer 3, 4 or 5 day a week training programs with our certified trainers

We have a training program that grows with both your puppy and your needs. In Our Head Start Program, we work with your puppy during the work day while you are at work. We will teach your puppy basic obedience, potty training, crate training, anti-jumping, play skills, appropriate/soft mouth fear prevention and much, much more! You can relax knowing we are there to put in the hard work, skill, dedication and time with your little one during the crucial early socialization period so you can enjoy your puppy and all that they have learned! 

The Puppy Head Start Program is a great training foundation for your puppy to then graduate to our outdoor walking membership to explore the big world while safely socializing, exercising and having fun.
