Puppy Primer

For dogs under 5 months of age, Puppy Primer gets you ready for all the things to expect as your puppy grows!

Puppy Primer helps you guide your dog through the stages of socialization (positive experiences with new people, other dogs, places, smells and sounds) without overwhelming him. It includes an introduction to positive training techniques and the basic building blocks of obedience behaviours like looking at you when you say his name, ‘check in with me’ (a precursor to recall) and ‘settle down’ when overstimulated.

How does it work?

You choose the time that’s convenient for you!

Nice Dog, Scarlett! offer 3 x 1 hour consultations to discuss things specific to you and your puppy. We will address his changing needs as he grows, and I will help you with puppy proofing your home, potty training, nipping and biting, and problem prevention.

*DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, CONSULTATIONS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLINE VIA VIRTUAL VIDEO CHAT, UNTIL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS ADVISE THAT IN-PERSON GATHERINGS ARE SAFE TO RESUME*

Nice Dog, Scarlett! will schedule a 1 hour video consultation to discuss things specific to you and your puppy.

We will address his changing needs as he grows, and I will help you with puppy proofing your home, potty training, nipping and biting, and problem prevention.

The consultations are scheduled about 1 week apart. In the second session, we discuss how things are going. We will make adjustments as needed, and do some training and socialization. You then practice these things for another week. For our 3rd session, we add more skills and address any changes that are needed.

You will also have access to 3 puppy play dates, where you and other puppies and owners meet up for play-and-learn sessions (structured playtime with rest breaks and training).

The Pandemic Puppy Primer Program is $160 for 3 hours of private training, + access to 3 hours of puppy play sessions. *During the COVID-19 pandemic, the one-on-one consultations will be via video conference and the puppy play dates will be outdoors. The number of owners and puppies is limited to 3 households/10 people max, 2m social distancing and masks for all humans present, as per provincial health regulations. Locations are determined by the puppy parents that are available to host a play date in their fenced yard.*


I look forward to hearing from you, I can’t wait to help you and your puppy learn and grow together!
