The fun begins January 19th, 2018

Give Your Puppy the BEST

Whether you want a happy family companion, or you have competitive aspirations.

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the information that's out there?

It's true. Experts are popping up on the daily. Spouting off protocols for puppy socialization, housebreaking and getting puppies NOT to bite.

Do you ever find yourself wondering...

"What should I ACTUALLY be doing?  I mean, do I let my puppy play with other dogs? Do I take them places? Is it best to leave them at home?"

I've been there.

And with my first puppy, I totally screwed up.

I did my research. I followed the protocols. I enrolled in puppy classes and I socialized my puppy like crazy. And I did everything wrong.

My puppy grew up to have separation anxiety, and despite my most valiant attempts at socialization, my puppy grew up to be aggressive with dogs and people.

If only I knew then, what I know now. If only I had a way to better filter the gobs of information out there, things would have been so...much...different. 

Here's what we'll cover

The fun begins on January 19th, 2017.

You'll receive one video lesson per week delivered straight to your inbox. Come along with me as I fly to pick my new puppy up, and hang with me every step of the way as I raise her to be a confident companion and a high performance competition dog.

Each lesson is approximately 20 minutes long outlining a little bit of theory, and giving you step-by-step instructions that you can implement right away to start laying the proper foundation for your puppy.

We'll also be hosting LIVE Q&A sessions to help you on your journey.

WEEK 1:

Prepping for your Puppy

Get the lowdown on everything you need (and everything you don't!) to make your puppy's transition home a seamless one. Haven't picked your puppy yet? Don't sweat it. We'll also teach you how to pick the perfect puppy based on your goals and lifestyle.

WEEK 2:

Bringing Your Puppy Home

Follow along as trainer Meagan Karnes picks up her new puppy. Learn how to assess a litter, and learn what to do in those critical first few hours when you first bring your new puppy home. Set your puppy up for success the moment he or she walks in the door.

WEEK 3:

Puppy Socialization

This ain't yo' mama's old marker training system. Learn how to create and use markers to improve your communication, while maximizing engagement and energy. And if you don't know what markers are yet, don't sweat it! You'll learn everything you need to know to start effectively implementing them immediately!

WEEK 4:

Early Training

Does your dog have a good work ethic? Does he (or she!) show up on time, eager to work? Would he stay late just to get the job done? Or does he have a bad attitude. Is he lazy and unmotivated? Learn how to develop your dog's work ethic and transform your slacker into the employee of the month!

WEEK 5:

Combatting Bad Behaviors

It's your job to create the environment where your dog is successful. But how do you do that? Learn how to set your dog up for success every time so that he remains motivated and confident to tackle whatever you throw at him.

WEEK 6:

Housebreaking

Here's where it gets really fun. Learn a simple and effective game you can play with your dog to start making engagement a really profitable endeavor for your dog, whether you are out in public, or you are stepping on the training field.

It should never be a chore

One of the biggest mistakes dog owners make when training their dog is the dreaded..."OVERTHINKING". They take this far too seriously, and they fail to let go and have fun. So worried they will make a mistake, they shift all of their energy to control and commands, and they neglect what makes training our dogs so rewarding. It's time to bring the fun back. I promise, engagement will follow.

BUNDLE IT! Basic and Advanced Obedience

Set your new puppy up for success. Bundle our Puppy Raising course with both our Basic and Advanced Obedience Courses and Save BIG! You'll learn everything you need to know to properly socialize your young puppy, and how to teach and reinforce the basics such as sit, down, stay, place and more. Then, take your training to the next level and learn distance and off leash work in our Advanced Obedience intensive. You don't want to miss this!

I am 100% satisfied with the training.  Not being a big fan of online training I have to admit your team has done a great job.  I find myself listening to the audio files on the way to work and the drive home.

The lessons could be modified for every type of dog/person relationship. To take training that is geared towards protection sport training and make it relevant to the average pet dog and everyone in between is fabulous.
