Puppy Training

The time between 8 and 16 weeks is the most important in your dog’s life. Let our puppy training programs help you get off to a great start!

Puppies don’t grow out of problems like jumping, nipping, and chewing. They grow into them.

Start training now while it’s still easy!

During a puppy’s critical first 4 months we can:

  • Provide appropriate socialization to raise a well-balanced puppy
  • Teach obedience and manners quickly and easily
  • Stop bad habits before they start
  • Prevent serious problems like aggression, fear, and separation anxiety

We can train your puppy for you or we can teach you to do it yourself

Programs Where We Train Your Puppy

Let us take the stress out of puppy raising for you. In our intensive training programs, we train and socialize your puppy and then train your family to maintain your puppy’s lessons.

  • Faster Results: We can do in 3-4 weeks what would take you 3-4 months.
  • Less Work: Puppy training means practicing every day. Let us do it for you.
  • Less Stress: Untrained puppies chew things up, have bathroom accidents, and need constant supervision that includes getting up in the middle of the night to take them out. We’ll get that under control in a hurry.
  • Peace of Mind: We provide a safe loving environment where your pup gets constant supervision and attention from professional trainers.
  • Intensive Lifelong Support: We’ll be there to support you in maintaining your training through a mix of virtual, group class, and private in-home lessons that allow us to respond quickly to any problems you encounter. Our Stay’n’Play educational dog daycare and boarding programs also help maintain or refresh your dog’s training for life.

Total Immersion Puppy Camps

Cincinnati’s puppy board and train specialists train your puppy in a loving home environment. Puppies live in our home like one of our pets, not in a kennel. They learn the practical real world manners they need for your home with 24/7 supervision. We’ll do the hard part of house training, establishing a lasting obedience foundation, and socializing your puppy extensively. When your puppy comes home, we’ll train your family to maintain all that they have learned.

Puppy Training Day School – Come Home to a Well-Behaved Puppy

Would you like us to train your puppy for you, but just can’t bear the thought of missing out on all that puppy cuteness? In our Puppy Day School programs, we train, exercise, and socialize your pup while you work.  It means a bit more work for you than our board and train programs because you have to enforce new rules and manage house training evenings and weekends, but you get to keep your puppy at home. Your family gets training on what your puppy learned at the end of each week.
