An 8 week Comprehensive Blueprint to Puppyhood
8 week Program For Dogs Age 2-6 Months
Current research shows that the primary and most important time for puppy socialization is the first three months of life. During this time puppies should be exposed to as many new people, animals, stimuli, and environments as can be achieved safely and without causing over-stimulation, as per the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior. Incomplete or improper socialization during this important time can increase the risk of behavioural problems later in life including fear, avoidance, and/or aggression. Behavioural problems are the greatest threat to the owner–dog bond. In fact, behavioural problems are the number one cause of relinquishment to shelters.

What You and Your Puppy Will Achieve
ROCK SOLID FOUNDATIONS
To reach our puppy's full potential we first need to build amazing foundations. In this course we'll help you to understand your puppy's innermost motivators, how to supercharge play, build an incredible connection and perfect key skills to help you expertly navigate your puppy's first weeks and prevent problem behaviours from arising.
FUN TO FOCUS
Build unwavering focus from your puppy. We'll walk you through how to ensure your puppy engages enthusiastically and loves looking to you. Through fun games we'll help you teach your puppy how to not only look at you when you ask but to offer focus around even the biggest distractions!
Help your puppy to become their perfect selves by teaching them self control and the art of asking nicely. Amaze your friends and family as your puppy masters polite greetings without jumping up, waits patiently whenever you ask, ignores dropped food and settles calmly in a variety of situations.
THE CONFIDENT CANINE
Boost emotional confidence and body awareness. (And in the case of very confident pups, learning to slow down and think more!) We'll guide you through how to properly socialize your puppy so they develop into a robust, resilient individual, while avoiding common pitfalls which can cause issues later on.
TIME FOR TRICKS
Tricks are a great way to strengthen the canine-human bond, build confidence, enhance connection and enrich our puppies' lives even more. Unlock the fun and enjoy watching as everyone in the family wants to perfect these fun, puppy appropriate tricks!
SUPERHUMAN SKILL BOOST
Training is definitely a joint effort between us and our dogs. But don't worry, we'll give your skills a level up so training your pup becomes easy! From developing expert timing, to understanding how dogs learn and communicate, you'll learn how to problem solve and build brand new behaviours from scratch. But don't worry we'll be here to support you every step of the way if you need us!

Weekly Private Lessons (Virtual or In-Person)
We self-directed learning is not for everyone. Some of us need a little more support and accountability to stay consistent and interpret and apply the information. If this sounds like you this is the perfect option for you! We will assign you a qualified behaviour coach who will work with you to schedule a 1 hour weekly appointment either virtually or in-person (for Ottawa and surrounding areas only) for the 8 weeks of your program.
