Puppy education is more than just training; it lays the foundation for a strong and lasting relationship between you and your pup!
Training your new puppy begins the moment you set eyes on each other!
The secret to a confident and friendly companion is socialization. Don’t wait! The window of opportunity is short…Puppies learn a substantial percentage of their life-long beliefs during the first four months of their life. Teaching your Puppy skills during this time period will help to guarantee a strong and lasting relationship with your puppy for life!
A Closer Bond’s exclusive Puppy programs give your pup broad exposure to new people, places, objects, and sounds. Your puppy deserves the best opportunity to learn about the world in a safe, controlled environment in order to develop into a confident and happy adult! Learn more about each program below.

Gracie W's. Family
When we got Gracie at 8 weeks old, she was very shy and fearful of being touched by strangers. We tried to socialize her as much as possible at home, having her meet lots of visitors and taking her out within the neighborhood. Despite our efforts, at 14 weeks she got snippy and growly at a vet appointment. We knew we had to do more to help her. Luckily a friend recommended A Closer Bond and we quickly scheduled an evaluation. Gracie began attending the Puppy Day Training 3 days a week. Each day she attended training she had opportunity to socialize with other dogs and with lots of different people. The trainers personalized their approach for Gracie’s unique issues and over the course of two weeks we started to see steady improvements. We were so impressed with how well the trainers understood Gracie’s specific challenges and how they slowly, steadily and creatively worked to socialize her. She started to be excited to see her trainers and she’d even wag her tail and act like a happy puppy. We were also impressed that the trainers helped us develop approaches to real-life situations, such as returning to the vet. Three weeks after the challenging vet appointment which led us to A Closer Bond, we visited the vet again. This time, much to our delight, she was comfortable with the vet and tolerated her appointment without being stressed. The vet even commented that she acted like a totally different puppy. We will continue the socialization process for Gracie, but with A Closer Bond’s expertise to guide us, we are confident we are on the right path.
