This is a one hour in-home visit to teach you about the A-B-C’s of owning a new puppy and the 3 S’s of potty training. This is great if it's your first puppy or if you haven't had a puppy in years.

A-B-C stands for:

In order to offer solutions to specific behavior issues, a one hour visit to the owners’ home is necessary.

A case specific summary is presented outlining a plan of action. Owners can choose to continue with private training sessions to carryout this plan or choose to conduct the behavior modification plan by themselves. The meeting will involve:
  • Discussions of dogs’ daily routine, lifestyle, environment, age, breed, and health

Canine Good Citizen

Dogs must be over one year of age and have had Basic Obedience. This consists of four lessons, approximately one hour, aimed at preparing you and your pet to participate in the Canine Good Citizen test, designed by the American Kennel Club (AKC). The location of these classes will vary each week in order to simulate public social situations. You will participate in a test at the end of the lessons. There are ten specific social skills you and your pet must demonstrate without error. Any unsocial behavior (growl, bark, whine, run away, jump, lunge, potty on-site) is considered an error and a non-passing mark must be given. A passing mark qualifies the dog to receive an official certificate from the AKC acknowledging the dog's social manners.
