Whether you're feeling gleeful as you gaze at the fluffball in your lap, or a little terrified about what you've just done, a consult will help you make the most of this very special time.
We'll come up with the best way to arrange your home to set your puppy up for success -- minimizing destruction and maximize potty-training success.
I'll show you what you can be teaching your puppy already, and how easy it is to work that learning into your day.
We'll discuss how to manage your new little alligator, especially if you have kids who begged for a puppy and are now afraid of said puppy's teeth!
We'll go over what to expect as you introduce leash walks, and how to make sure those experiences are positive for your 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.
