Puppy Head Start Training Classes

Dog Training Classes for Puppies in Carmel, Indiana

FOR DOGS 8 WEEKS to 24 WEEKS OLD

Start your pup off right with Puppy Head Start. This curriculum is designed to provide your puppy with beginning skills, socialization and conditioning exercises.

PUPPY HEAD START COVERS:

Common Puppyhood Issues: Challenges such as separation anxiety, pulling on a leash, biting and more will be dealt with using positive methods so that your pup will build trusting relationships that will continue into adulthood.

Handling: Helping them to be comfortable and well behaved during vet and grooming visits reduces stress for you and your pup.

Socialization: Introducing appropriate play with pups in their age group is critical. Early socialization is often the key to alleviating problem behaviors in the future.

Puppy Butterfly List: We will introduce your pup to many “strange” things they might encounter during their first months of life to help them better understand how to deal with these and other unexpected interruptions in their environments.

BEHAVIORS LEARNED IN PUPPY HEAD START:
  • Loose-Leash Walking
  • Sit
  • Calm Greetings/Wait
