Puppy Training

Puppy manners needed now?

Having a young puppy is a full-time job. Getting the house-training right, puppy-proofing your home, keeping your hands (and shoe laces) safe from sharp puppy teeth, and teaching your puppy some much-needed manners—it’s a lot of effort. That’s where we come into the picture. We take the effort and worry out of raising a well-mannered and behaviorally healthy puppy. How? By using modern, humane, science-based puppy training—and by giving you lots of support along the way.

Why socialize your puppy?

Socializing your puppy means getting her used to lots of new stuff: people, other dogs, sounds, situations. This may seem counterintuitive. Don’t puppies love the whole world? They do, but only in the early stage of their development. Zoom forward a few months and your puppy might turn growly around kids or other dogs. To prevent aggression and other behavior problems, and to raise a friendly, easygoing dog, you must socialize. We can help you get it just right! Sandy Wishnick is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, so you’ll be getting the highest quality, humane training for your puppy.

“Our family adopted Juno, a Newfoundland puppy with absolutely no house manners. I highly recommend Sandy and positive reinforcement training. Juno is so well mannered around the house now.” –Janis Good and Juno

“CJ is now the best-behaved 1-year-old Lab we have ever shared our home with. He walks perfectly on leash, patiently waits for his food bowl, and obediently goes into his crate. All this can be directly attributed to Sandy’s professional training and direction.”
Joe and Judy Richardson
