with your pup!
K9 Mania is excited to offer our new Foundation Puppy Training Program! Our private, in-home puppy training focuses on positive reinforcement helping you reach the full potential with your new puppy from an early age. Our training is both fun and effective for you and your dog. The goal is to establish a strong loving bond and excellent communication with your puppy from the start. Throughout the training we will use controlled environments as well as real life experiences. The training combined with your practice, will help your dog achieve consistent behaviors regardless of the surrounding to ultimately live a happier life with your dog!

There will be daily homework and the whole family is encouraged to be included in the training. Although training will be carried out on that day, puppies can get tired very quickly, so some training may only be able to be explained and not demonstrated on the day. The above curriculum is a sample and we can also custom tailor the training to your puppy. It can take more than 6 weeks to cover all the topics depending on your puppy and the time that you put in. We cover mild basic puppy behavior modification any others we will need more sessions
