BABY PUPPY PROGRAM (8 – 12 weeks of age)
$150 for 5 lessons (the first lesson is a puppy free lesson – meaning you do not bring your puppy to the first lesson)
At the end of the 5 lessons your puppy will have a puppy graduation and you and your puppy will receive a puppy graduation gift and a Graduation Certificate for completing my Baby Puppy Program.
ABOUT THE BABY PUPPY PROGRAM
This program provides you with the support to move forward with further training with your new puppy or advance to my next level of training which is my Senior Puppy Program. My emphasis at all times is on positive reinforcement training.
At the puppy free lesson I will talk about the program structure and how we like to individualise the programs to suit the individual dogs within a class situation. I will also explain the importance of vaccinations, preventative flea and worm treatment, feeding and grooming.
