Who is this package for? 

Puppies 8 weeks to 6 months old

What do I get? 

  • 40-minute intake call prior to your first appointment followed by (10) 30-minute private training sessions customized to your needs via Google Meet scheduled 1-2 times per week. (Worried you can't train a dog that way? No worries! Read this.)

  • You will receive a follow-up email after each session with video and/or article links to help you remember the training homework.

  • Your package can be customized to meet your specific priorities.  

  • You can text, email, or call with questions outside of sessions.

  • You can take a week off if needed for vacation or just a break, no problem.


I really want to work in person.

  • We may offer the option to work in a park or your yard if you are local, or in a mutually convenient public place for the last (2) sessions. There is an extra travel fee of $20 and you would trade the (2) 30-minute video sessions for this (1) 60-minute in-person session. 

  • This is typically offered only if and when the pup is ready to work around distractions and being outdoors is relevant to the skills being trained and if the trainer(s) feel comfortable with current COVID-19 conditions and weather. 


What if I need more help?

Next, you work to build fluency - being able to do things in distracting environments at a distance and/or for a long duration of time. You can continue to follow our training plans on your own after Puppy 101, or schedule an advanced package, Teen Puppy 201.
