Puppy Training for Families

Start early to have a future well-mannered family dog

Hopkinsville Puppy Trainer

Teddy exploring his world

Training starts the moment you bring your puppy home! Starting NOW will save you money and frustration in the future! Let me guide you through the process of raising a well mannered dog!



This unique board and learn experience is for puppies who are 6 months (at the time of training) or less. Your puppy will live 24/7 in my training program, which includes a lifestyle of structure, routine, proper socialization, and supervised play. By living at my home, your puppy will develop a foundation for positive exploration of his world, crate training, potty training and house manners. It’s important that we create confidence and not submissiveness. With every dog being unique, each will learn and mature at a different pace, mentally and physically.  The focus of the program will depend on your dog’s age, individual needs, level of maturity and personality. It is also important to empower you to continue developing a new and incredible relationship with your dog that is long lasting and mutually respectful! My goal is to help you raise a happy, fun, well mannered and confident dog!

Planning on diving into puppyhood? Or maybe just brought that puppy home and are asking yourself…what now??  This program is for you!

This program is for those who have JUST brought their puppy home or want to set up training BEFORE they even bring their puppy home! This program is for only those puppies between 8 & 12 weeks at the start of training. 

How does this differ?Puppy manners

We can get you started earlier in this program by starting with 2 sessions in your home to get potty and crate training of to a great start. Once your puppy has his/her full shots, he/she will then do a Board & Train with me to deepen confidence building, social skills and behavior prevention.  This program guides you in creating age appropriate structure, boundaries and interactions in these crucial weeks and beyond. This way, We can eliminate the majority of common puppy problems and the need to say ‘no’ more than ‘yes’. This program will set you up on the protocols that will take you through not only these critical imprinting weeks, where your pup will be most affected by what he/she learns for his/her entire life, but will carry over through the teenage and adolescent phases.

We will go beyond all that is covered in the Basic Puppy Program by going more in depth to proper exposure to people, situations and environments in order to have that confident dog that learns to focus on his/her humans in every situation.

This Program covers

  • All the puppy basics in the 10 Day
  • proper exposure (socialization) to dogs, people, environments (social skills)
  • confidence building through object climbing, surface discovery and self awareness
  • sit/stay, down/stay and recall
  • medical handling to make vet visits easy
  • positive association to grooming (bathing, brushing, nail clipping, ear cleaning)
  • sound desensitization to those often scary noises
  • real world exposure on field trips

Rate: $1500 includes a follow up visit 2-4 after the Board & Train, All training supplies included.

**all programs include lifetime phone/email support
