I do the initial intensive training of basic manners for puppies or adult dogs while you are
at work (or at home), and then transfer the newly-acquired skills to you to maintain--
a favorite package for busy people who want a well-behaved
companion but don't have time to do lots of training.
(Due to travel time, offered only in Burlington and South Burlington)
6 hours of training over 2-3 weeks,
plus (2) 1/2 hr transfer sessions (total 7 hrs)
Puppies don't come with instruction manuals. This is the next best thing!
We'll cover socialization, house training, crate training, puppy biting, all the usual issues.
Plus preventing problems, knowing what to expect as your pup grows up, and getting
started on basic manners. For puppies up to 20 wks (5 mos) old at start.
And we can start before your pup even gets home!
8 hours total over 8 weeks,
some of which can be on Zoom for convenience
