Out-and-About Puppy Training (2 per week)

The first four months of the life of your puppy are critical when it comes to him developing key social skills and behavioral foundations. What happens in those 16 weeks will impact him for the rest of his life. Once those weeks go by, it is impossible to completely make up for his developmental deficits. Unfortunately, many owners simply do not have the time to provide puppies the regular, appropriate socialization experiences the young dogs so desperately need during those first few months in their new homes. Out-and-About Private Puppy Training is designed specifically to fill that void in the life experiences of your puppy while giving you a head start on training your puppy. We will pick your puppy up, take him out for fun socialization experiences, and even start his basic manners training for you - all on your schedule!

Teen Classes

Out-and-About Adult Dog Training (2 per week)

In order to behave well in public, a dog must be trained in public. He needs to learn how to behave everywhere, every time.

But with all the demands on your time, it may be hard to carve out the time it takes to do this type of training. Out-and-About Private Dog Training is the answer to getting your dog the training experiences he needs out in the real world. A trainer will work with your dog for approximately an hour each session, in a different location each time, to enhance and refine his understanding of the basic obedience skills you've already started with your dog.
