Services and Fees

The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviour says the first three months are the most important and "at-home training should be based on positive reinforcement with frequent rewards praise, petting, play and/or treats". 

Starting Off Right
5 Week Puppy Training Package 

Is your puppy too young to attend puppy classes? The Puppy Package is perfect for you! I will come to you and cover all the essentials of raising a well adjusted obedient puppy. 

With this package we will focus on the critical issues to ensure you are off to a successful start with your new puppy. For new puppies 8-16 weeks of age.

5.5 hours of training @ $500.00 + HST.

We begin with an initial visit of 1.5 hours to go over basics including:

  • House training
  • Teaching the puppy not to bite (bite inhibition)
  • Crate training, confinement training
  • Puppy proofing the home
  • Problem prevention
  • Socialization - what is it and how to do it
  • How to get the behaviour you want and how to prevent the behaviour you don't want.

The remaining 4 sessions will build a strong foundation for:

  • Sit and Down
  • Come: run happily to you when called
  • Leash Walking Basics
  • Hand Targeting:  a great foundation for many behaviours including get back into heel, recall, off or on something, polite door greetings.
  • Grooming and handling 
  • drop it

The purpose of this program is to set a strong foundation for a healthy well balanced obedient puppy. One who will feel confident exploring and will take new and unusual  circumstances in stride.

"Just completed Janis' puppy classes and highly recommend her to anyone considering getting a puppy.  Janis seems to have this magical way around dogs.  I was feeling truly frustrated for the first few weeks after we got him until Janis came and taught us how to communicate properly with our puppy.  After only 4 sessions he responds to so many commands and walking him has become a pleasurable outing.  We will definitely continue on with some more training as we are on the road to raising an amazing dog".
