Why Choose Our Program:

Welcome to our exclusive Comprehensive Puppy Training program, where we integrate the principles of the L.E.G.S. Model to provide holistic and effective training for your puppy. As a Licensed Certified Family Dog Mediator, I emphasize the importance of understanding who our dogs are, their shared history with humans, and the natural laws that influence their behavior. The prevalence of “behavior problems” among pet dogs signals deeper issues that can be addressed through comprehension, not just training.

Program Focus and Duration:

Our program is thoughtfully designed for puppies that are in a critical stage in their development. We offer flexible durations of 15, 21, or 30 days to ensure your puppy receives the right guidance during this formative period. The 15-day program establishes a foundational understanding, allowing you to begin reinforcing and building on what your puppy has learned. Opting for the 30-day program means your puppy gets more in-depth learning and the opportunity to work on specific cues you may desire. During this time, we also introduce new cues, such as ‘go to mat,’ ‘wait at the door,’ and provide extended focus on external environments, depending on your puppy’s shot status. This opens the door to suggested cues you may desire. Understanding the unique challenges and opportunities that come with this age group, our program is tailored to meet the individual needs of your puppy. We recognize that every puppy is unique, and the duration of the bootcamp will be customized based on your puppy’s temperament and your specific training goals.

A Holistic Approach:

We take pride in our compassionate and effective training methods. We firmly believe in positive reinforcement and never resort to harsh or outdated techniques like pinch collars, shock collars, or slip leads. Instead, we prioritize a comprehensive and humane approach, recognizing that dogs are part of a natural system guided by

Learning, Environment, Genetics, and Self (L.E.G.S.).

‘Behavior problems’ indicate imbalances in these elements, and our training focuses on addressing these imbalances while prioritizing your puppy’s well-being. Training alone may not address the root cause and can even cause psychological and emotional harm.

What We Teach:

Our Comprehensive Puppy Training program covers a wide range of essential skills and behaviors, ensuring that your puppy receives the best education possible. Here’s a detailed breakdown of what your puppy will learn:

Behavior Modification:

Desensitization to External Stimuli: Gradually introducing your puppy to various sounds and visual cues, setting the stage for a confident response to their environment.

Potty Training Refresher: Providing guidance on potty training basics, ensuring a clean and stress-free environment for both you and your puppy.

Addressing Common Puppy Behaviors: Tackling issues like nipping, jumping, proper body handling sensitivities using family dog mediation principles, emphasizing clear communication and empathy.

House-Proofing and Car Rides: Preparing your puppy for a smooth transition into your home and enjoyable car rides. (Some dogs may be prone to car sickness, we do not guarantee a quick fix to this).

Confidence Boosting: Visual and Aural Exposure. Random day to day objects like vacuums, Nail trimmers, Vehicles, pots and pans and such…

Foundation Cues and Basic Training:

Name Game: Teaching your puppy to respond reliably to their name.

Food Bowl Manners: Instilling polite mealtime behavior.

Cues:” Down,” “Sit,” “Come”, “Doggy Zen,” and “Take It/Leave It.”

Loose Leash Walking: Intro to walking on a leash with minimal pulling, even amidst distractions.

Basic “Sit” and “Down Stay”: 30-day option-Gradually increasing duration, distance, and distractions, preparing your puppy for real-world scenarios.

Public Training: 15-day Light exposure to various public places (shot status will affect this). (30-day option enhances more time with reinforcing public)

Go to Mat (place or climb): 30-day option: Teaching a dog to jump up onto a cot or position onto a blanket or bedding on the ground. The dog learns to maintain the boundaries of the area. They can move play with toys but must remain on it until released. Beneficial for when guests arrive or dinner table. (We also have hacks to address those mannerisms without requiring this cue as well.)

Wait at Door: 30-day option Building a strong understanding to the entrance way barriers to prevent door rushing. This can allow you a sense of calm when leaving the home or for those instances someone is walking into the home and the dog may want to bolt through the door that could lead to tragedy or loss. Establishing a barrier will only strengthen home safety and security.

Unlocking Clarity and Relief:

If you’ve tried multiple dog trainers or methods without success, it’s essential to recognize that “dog training” often misses the point. It’s not about coercion or control; it’s about meeting your dog where they are, understanding their unique recipe of interacting L.E.G.S., and acknowledging their contribution to the relationship.

Nature and Nurture:

Dogs are biological animals influenced by both Nature and Nurture. It’s not solely genetics or upbringing—it’s a complex interplay of elements. Controlled breeding and captivity have disrupted this balance, leading to “behavior problems” in modern day pet dogs.

By choosing our Comprehensive Puppy Training program, you’re investing in a well-rounded, confident, and harmonious relationship with your puppy. We provide the knowledge and resources you need to make a customized difference in your dog’s life, and we also teach you how to reinforce what is taught, further strengthening the bond between you and your furry companion.

Throughout the process we prioritize equipping you, as a responsible pet parent, with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively pick up and build onto where we left off.

Join us in this transformative journey of understanding and nurturing your puppy’s full potential, guided by the principles of the L.E.G.S. Model. Your puppy’s success is our top priority, and we’re here to help you every step of the way.
