 Puppy Program

The Puppy Program is designed to set you and your new puppy up for success!

Raising a new puppy can feel a little overwhelming, even if it's not your first time.  Learning the proper ways of handling, training, and preparing your puppy for the world around them is extremely important.  Just like children, there is a small window of time during development where their brains are the most impressionable.  For puppies, the first 4 months of life are the most critical.

.

The Puppy Program consists of private sessions, at-home, where Brandon Karp will teach you how to properly train and prepare your puppy to live happily in your world.

  • First Session is 90 minutes
  • Follow up sessions are each 60 minutes
  • Recommended once per week for as few or as many weeks as you need
Fitness & Enrichment Sessions

Dogs need both Physical and Mental exercise and enrichment in order to thrive.  However, it's often more than we can handle or have time for.  Pent-up energy may be the cause of your dog's nervous, anxious, destructive or bad behavior.  Walks and toys are not always enough to exert their physical and mental energy... they need to be challenged.

Have Brandon Karp come to your home to offer the best in Fitness and Enrichment for your dog.  Whether you choose scent detection, agility, pilates, clicker training, tricks training or a combination of activities and trainings, your dog will thank you for it!
