 Don’t you wish puppies came with an owners’ manual?  We’ve got you covered. We have written materials and instructional videos on common puppy issues and teaching behaviors. We’ll also share our secrets for jump-starting your training and using non-food rewards. And, we’ve discounted our professional fees for owners with puppies younger than 6 months of age.  We want to encourage owners to get training while their puppies are still young.
