Positive Puppy Lessons in Longmont, Loveland, Berthoud Colorado

Puppy Talk

In order to teach, we must be able to communicate. Your puppy must be able to understand what it is that you want, and you must be able to understand your puppy's needs. Communication is vital to learning.

Puppy Talk will get us started with human-puppy communication. We will observe your new puppy, noting your puppy's strengths, and also if there are any weaknesses where extra attention may be needed.  We will also have a puppy communication lesson to aid in communication to your puppy, and understanding of your puppy.

We'll talk about any specfic goals you may have for your puppy and how we can meet those goals.  And we will provide general, every day survival tips to get you and your puppy heading in the right direction. Any questions you have will be answered, and we will get started right away with a lesson on successful house training for your puppy.

Puppy Talk lesson includes:

  • One-on-one instruction from a Karen Pryor Academy certified "Puppy Start Right" instructor.
  • A Puppy Evaluation & goal assessment.
  • A dog communication lesson.
  • An introduction to our training methods.
  • A house training lesson.
  • A copy of "On Talking Terms With Dogs - Calming Signals" by Turid Rugaas
  • Welcome folder, and a goodie bag, including two free clickers!
