The Training Studio

Puppies

Socialization may the single-most important thing you do for your puppy!  The window where dogs learn to be comfortable in the outside world is from 6-16 weeks of age.  If puppies don't have positive experiences with unfamiliar people, new places and other animals during this time, they may have a very difficult time with new people, places and animals down the road.  Sometimes these problems do not present until adolescence.
 
We offer private training sessions for puppies starting as early as 8 weeks of age.  

If you missed your puppy's socialization window, please contact us about training options - it is never too late to start training your puppy!

In an effort to make everyone feel comfortable during the transition back to in-person training, we will adopt safety measures in accordance with CDC regulations.  

  1. Masks are required at all times in the studio. Please maintain a distance of at least 6 feet apart.

  2. If you arrive early for class, please remain in your car. When coming inside, please maintain a minimum of 10 feet from any other dog/person teams.

  3. Hand sanitizer will be available at the studio.
