Puppies Under 5 Months

I offer training services for puppies under 5 months, both virtually and in person in Sooke.

My Puppy Programs are only intended for puppies and families who are working on typical puppy concerns, and not significant behaviour issues. Typical puppy issues can include:

  • Housetraining
  • Puppy biting and chewing
  • Basic obedience
  • Crate/confinement training
  • Socialization
  • Puppy and Children Skills

More significant behaviour concerns that will likely require a behaviour modification program include:

  • Separation anxiety
  • Significant resource guarding
  • Fear/reactivity towards people or other dogs
  • Aggression

Online Intro to Puppies session: 60 minute Zoom session where we discuss everything puppy, from your daily routine, to socializing, to puppy problems like biting, potty training and crate training. Ask anything: it’s 1 hour of a puppy expert at your disposal. Ideal for very young puppies or folks with lots of questions.
$140 plus GST, includes an emailed summary and issue specific handouts, as well as assessment of videos before session if you wish.

In Person Puppy Starter session: 50 minutes in person session in Sooke, done at your home if you have a suitable outdoor space or in a park if your puppy is ready for that. Includes question time but also in person tips and feedback for puppy skills such as re-call, socializing or leash walking. Ideal for older puppies or folks with specific concerns.

$160 plus GST, includes emailed summary and issue specific handouts.

Following these sessions, follow ups are also available in 3 session packages for $350. These are in person sessions but I can also do online follow ups or a custom combo of sessions!
