‘Helping Dogs with People Problems since 1991’

It is imperative that you help your puppy build a proper foundation before they are 5 months old.  This is a critical period in your puppy's development.
*Please read the AMERICAN VETERINARY SOCIETY OF ANIMAL BEHAVIOR's Position Statement on early puppyhood socialization (below).


  1. Teaching good puppy manners - basic commands such as: sit, stay, come, off, walking on leash, and greeting strangers.
  2. Socializing your puppy before bad habits start.  Young dogs can become fearful if not well socialized at an early age.
  3. Teaching Bite Inhibition before adulthood.
