Kim Wells - Certified Professional Dog Trainer
For puppies under 16 weeks of age. Learn how to enhance the bond between you and your puppy and socialize your puppy to his/her new world. Discover solutions to puppy challanges, and begin training behaviours you would like your puppy to choose.
Topics include housetraining, crate training, mouthing and nipping, jumping up, puppy manners, sharing, and canine communication.
Begin training behaviours such as getting and keeping your puppy's attention, stationary behaviours, walking nicely on a loose leash, and recalls.
