DENISE’S PET CARE PUPPY AND DOG TRAINING PROGRAM
Our training program is designed not only to focus on the essentials for new puppies, but on key topics such as health and wellness and socialization – all of which lead to a happy, healthy and mutually beneficial relationship between you and your dog(s). We also provide specialized training if there are special behavioural issues or if you’ve recently adopted a dog. Whatever your situation is, we’re happy to discuss a program focused on meeting your training needs. You may choose to register for the full program or opt for individual sessions.
Sessions in the full program:
- Inside Behaviours (Lots to cover here! First days home, feeding, establishing puppy manners, managing excited puppy behaviours (nipping and jumping up), dogs and children)
- Health and Wellness (including emergency first aid)
- The Essentials: Sit, Stay, Come and Leave it (Instructional and Practical)
- Walking Well (Instructional and Practical)
The core principles of our training are based on positive reinforcement - a positive result for good behaviours. The concepts behind the training are teaching your pet those things that will keep him or her safe, and to keep his or her life and yours balanced by ensuring appropriate and positive behaviours. I also teach the universal hand signals to accompany these directives.
The standard length for a session is roughly 45 minutes to one hour each week. The cost for the complete 5 week program is $250. You can also choose to have individual sessions if your training need is to address a specific issue (barking, nipping, behavioural issues for newly adopted pets for example). We ask that you register for a minimum of two sessions. The sessions are held in your home, where your entire family can be present – we recognize that training works best in your dog’s home and this also provides ultimate convenience for you and your family.
Prior to beginning, you will be provided with a questionnaire which will help us best understand yours and your pet’s situations and needs. We require all puppies to be vaccinated as appropriate for their age and dogs over six months to be fully vaccinated and ask that you provide copies of these certificates.
You'll be provided with a personalized binder containing all of the sessions and helpful resources, as well as a First Aid Kit and Certificate of Completion.
