Puppy Programs

Congratulations on your new puppy, now what???

Everyone loves how cute a new puppy is but most don’t realize that from 4 weeks to 6 months is an extremely impressionable time for a dog. We love helping puppies and their owners start off on the right paw! Puppies are like sponges soaking up knowledge and experiences. We want to help you mold your puppy into a confident, social, well mannered, and controlled dog as much as possible through positive experiences and clear
communication.

Crate Training/ House Breaking

For most puppy owners crate training or house breaking is one of their first goals. The K9 Experts have extensive knowledge in how to help you and your puppy tackle this first challenge. We can show you how to transition from crate training to house training where your dog can notify you to go out to the bathroom.

Manners

Every puppy, just like children, need to be shown how to properly behave. It is up to the owners to decide what is acceptable and what will not be tolerated. The K9 Experts will help you get rid of the unwanted behaviors that you dislike that your puppy is displaying. This can include barking, jumping, digging, chewing, counter surfing, garbage diving, getting on furniture, or any other unwanted behavior. We can also put limits to certain behaviors.

Socializing/ Desensitizing

We want all puppies to grow up to be confident and social dogs. The K9 Experts will expose puppies to different people, obstacles, noises, and environments. This helps give puppies at an early age a positive association with individuals that will handle them such as vets, or groomers, it also increases the likely hood of them having a positive experience with an unfamiliar person or situation.

AKC Puppy Star Program

The K9 Experts has the ability to help your puppy to be a AKC Puppy Star. Our trainers can administer the AKC Puppy Star test after completion of many of our programs for dogs under one year of age. This is a great step towards completing your AKC Canine Good Citizen Test.
