Our Puppy 101 course consists of four, individual in-home sessions with you, your family, and your new puppy. These sessions are scheduled over the course of four weeks, with one session held per week.
Sessions are taught by our Owner and Puppy Trainer, Casey. In addition to schooling through the "Catch Dog Training Academy", Casey has been working as a professional in the pet care arena for over 10 years, with an emphasis in puppy training. Casey uses Positive Reinforcement methods, and does not make use of shock collars or similar devices in this program.
This is a puppy basics course intended for puppies less than 16 weeks of age.
