Welcome to Puppy Preparatory School
Setting puppies up for ongoing success through foundational training!
Setting Puppies up for Lifelong Success
How well you train and socialize your new puppy in its first few weeks sets the stage for its success in the years to come. Working with a new puppy is a full-time job, so I have made it mine! I have been raising foster puppies for 9 years and have had hundreds of dogs come through my door. Animal welfare is my passion and while working with multiple rescues and shelters, I noticed how many dogs were surrendered by their owners due to basic behavioral issues. Many such issues, like potty-training, crate-training, and socialization, can be solved with time, effort, and the guidance of an experienced trainer before becoming the type of problem that strains the relationship between puppy and owner. The goal of Puppy Preparatory School is to set puppies up for success in their new homes and help prevent negative behaviors in the future.
Positive Reinforcement & Force-Free
Training Methods Only
One of the most important things that sets Puppy Preparatory apart is our commitment to creating a safe and positive learning environment for all of our students regardless of their age, size, or training goals. We utilize Positive Reinforcement and Force-Free training methods only, meaning we never use force, coercion, intimidation, painful punishment, or any tools that inflict pain for any students in our care.
Board & Train
Students stay in the trainer's home where they are treated as family as we work towards your training goals.
Day School is run out of the Trainer's home Monday-Friday and focuses on command work, leash training, and socialization.
Board & Tune (Boarding)
Designed to help our graduates brush up on and build off of what they learned during Board & Train or Day School.
