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, MASKS MUST BE WORN BY ALL PARTICIPANTS WHILE INDOORS, AND MAINTAIN A MINIMUM 2m FROM EACH OTHER. (The dogs don’t have to wear a mask…the picture is just representation of the additional safety precautions for humans during the pandemic.)

The consultations are scheduled about 1 week apart.  We discuss the things you want to work on, where your puppy is at with that skill at the moment  how things are going.  We will do some training and socialization. You then practice these things for a week. We then add new skills and address any changes that are needed in the following session.

You will 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 Puppy Primer Program is $289 for 3 hours of private training, + access to 3 puppy play sessions. Locations are determined by the puppy parents and their availability.

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