Puppy Training Bay Area

Welcome to the playful world of puppies!

We understand raising a puppy can be fun, joyful, frustrating, & confusing – a mixed bag of emotions all at the same time… As cute & adorable as puppies are, they don’t come pre-programmed with the rules of navigating the world of humans!

Imagine not having to worry about your puppy being afraid of situations, play biting everyone, stealing things, peeing in the house and barking like crazy when they’re alone! A puppy who knows how to pay attention to you, how to act around other people and other dogs, pee in the right places, chew their own toys only, not use their needle sharp teeth on humans, come when called, be calm when needed.… how to deal with all the chaos and excitement in life & more!

Puppyhood (especially the first 16 weeks of your dog’s life) is the best time to lay the foundation for the canine companion of your dreams. If you’re looking forward to a calm, relaxed, easy-going, friendly, confident, well-adjusted adult dog – puppy training that includes systematic socialization, confidence building, installing life skills and training is the key. Our training methods are backed by science, effective, and tailored to fit the bustling lifestyle of our community.

Choose a program that fits your lifestyle and training goals – Puppy Playgroup & Group Classes, Puppy Board & Train, Puppy Day School, Private Puppy Training, and Online Classes.

Puppy Board & Train

A favorite option of busy Silicon Valley professionals, our Board & Train programs offer structured training and socialization, helping them develop into well-adjusted and balanced adult dogs. Your puppy will stay with our trainer in her home while learning the rules of YOUR house. This is a faster way to get effective and long lasting results. Please choose this if –

  • You need quick results?
  • Your puppy’s dog-habits are growing faster than you have the time to train?
  • You need to understandably focus on other equally important items on your checklist in your 24-hour day?

We will tailor the program to your specific goals, and learning style of the puppy. This personalized approach accelerates the learning process and allows for focused work on specific behaviors or challenges. The goal is to focus on socialization, life skills, problem prevention and basic manners.

To get the best results from this program we will meet your puppy at home or out and about 3-4 times a week. We’ll then meet once a week at a convenient time in your home or outdoors to transfer the training results so you can enjoy your well-adjusted puppy.
