Brand New Pup?
Let Me Get You Started

Let's get you prepared for the fun-but-intense phase that’s ahead. Having the right set-up and knowing what to expect are the keys to retaining your sanity.


  • I’ll talk you through the best way to arrange your home to minimize destruction and maximize potty-training success.

  • We'll talk about how to manage your new little alligator, especially if you have kids who begged for a puppy and are now afraid of said puppy!

  • We’ll discuss the best products for your situation (gates, crates, toys, collars, food, books).

  • We’ll take a look at your family schedule, and set up a routine that’ll bring out the best in everyone.

  • I’ll explain the all-important puppy socialization window, and guide you on how to gently and safely expose your pup to new things.

  • We'll focus on any special questions or concerns you have.

First step: I'm going to help you get into the right headspace for puppyhood.  Read this.
