Train now to prevent behavioral issues later

This on-demand online course covers all the essential early learning topics for your young pup (8 – 16 weeks). We’ll cover puppy biting, jumping, resource guarding, leash pulling and more. You’ll give your pup a great start!

The exercises included in this class are the ones that are important to cover with your pup when he’s young (less than 16 weeks). Many common behavior issues can be avoided by focusing on these important lessons while your pup is still in his critical socialization period. Learning obedience behaviors is also important. But our recommendation is that you first focus on these lessons, then turn your attention to teaching obedience in our Manners 1 class, starting at 16 – 20 weeks of age. 

Enroll for just $35 and get:
