Positive Socialization

Not just socialization to other dogs! We will show you how to positively socialize your puppy to an array of stimuli.

  • People –children, seniors, people of all races, size
  • Animals –other dogs, cats, birds or other animals
  • Health and grooming –walking equipment, touched for grooming or examination
  • Environments –pet store, busy streets and places, crate and other confinement, car, outdoor sitting, backyard
  • Surfaces, noises and other novelty items –vacuum, blow drier, garbage can, walkers and other devices, bike cycle

Problem Prevention and solving

Prevent against boredom, release your puppy’s pent up energy –deter mischief.

Using positive reinforcement, you will learn and be coached regarding proper management and supervision of your puppy.

  • Play biting and mouthing,
  • jumping, “counter surfing” and stealing objects,
  • chewing,
  • independence training,
  • resource guarding,
  • crate training and/or proper confinement.

Our puppy training curriculum is based on the book Puppy Start Right Foundation Training for the Companion Dog. We personalize the training including a solid foundation for positive socialization, problem prevention and solving, and positive training. We help you to anticipate and manage puppy behaviors that may develop into problematic behaviors in the future. Teaching and entertaining your dog with foundation behaviors (see below) will capture his/her puppy energy and redirect potential mischief and learn manners. Early socialization vaccinates your puppy against behavior problems like reactivity to other dogs, people, places, things and sounds. Without proper socialization, puppies can grow up to become fearful and reluctant to approach or be approached by unfamiliar stimuli –some dogs may even grow to become reactive by showing fearful aggression.

We recommend you start puppy training at 8 weeks of age– see
