In-Home Training & Problem Solving
Puppy Training (puppies 6 months and under):
Don’t wait until your puppy is six months old! The first few months are a critical development time for puppies and building a solid foundation during this time is the best way to prevent bad habits. Your puppy is learning from Day One, either good habits or bad ones!
We’ll start with an information session/consultation where we’ll talk about everything Puppy. We’ll discuss Housetraining, Nipping, Chewing, Jumping Up, Socialization, Exercise, Bite Inhibition, and more! We’ll learn how to teach a couple commands that you can start right away. (Note: this session is virtual, due to Covid-19).
In the following in-home sessions, we can learn commands Sit, (Lie) Down, Stay, Leash Walking, Leave It, Drop It, Come, Wait to Eat, Wait at the Door, and Door Greetings. We can also work on other issues such as excessive barking, counter surfing, digging, and more. Due to Covid-19, we will wear masks and do as much as possible outside. We can also use my fully fenced yard in Sudbury.
Basic Training (dogs older than six months):
Oh no! Bad habits have set in! Or your pup is just very exuberant and you want to rein her in a bit and/or learn some manners. We can work on Sit, Stay, Down, Come, Leave It, Drop It, Wait to Eat, Wait at the Door, and Leash Walking. We can also work on not Jumping, Counter-Surfing, eliminate Begging, Digging, Staying Off Furniture, not Destroying Property, and more. The initial Consultation can be done remotely or at your home. Following sessions take place at your home or my fenced yard in Sudbury. We will wear masks and be outdoors as much as possible.
Sadly, many dogs are in shelters because of preventable, or solvable, behavior problems. Joy for Dogs hopes to reduce the numbers of dogs in shelters by helping them stay with their families in their “forever home”. Joy for Dogs will work with you to achieve your goals and eliminate those annoying behaviors so that you can develop the bond with your dog that you were meant to have and enjoy your best friend!
