Puppy Training

Puppies learn a substantial percentage of their life-long beliefs during the first four months of their life.

Socializing your puppy and teaching them skills during this time period will help to guarantee a strong and lasting relationship for life! A Closer Bond’s exclusive puppy training 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!

Get Started

Puppy Preschool

For dogs 8 weeks to 16 weeks of age

Features

  • 3 group socialization classes
  • Private meeting with a trainer after group class completion
  • 2 half-day passes for enrichment program at A Closer Bond
  • Puppy manual and handouts
  • 1 proper chew toy

The first step for this program is to call and set up your private consultation. With our open enrollment policy, you can get started at any time. The group classes start weekly and are held on Saturday mornings at 10am.

In your first consultation, we teach you how to solve common puppy problems like play biting and house training, and we also want to focus on your personal goals and concerns based on your puppy’s unique personality.

During the three group classes, you will continue working on developing good behaviors, manners, and social development, as well as get the support you need to stop any unwanted puppy behaviors. We want your puppy to be confident and comfortable around different people, places and objects.

After your family has completed your group classes, we complete your program with your private meeting. Here we will cover any last-minute concerns to give you peace of mind knowing you are on the right track with your puppy.

Pair this with our Puppy Learn & Play Program for even more knowledge from a professional Trainer to gain hands-on experience to grow with your puppy.

Do you have a new puppy who needs more social development and confidence in new environments? Need help teaching your puppy better manners? Looking to get a great head start with your pup? A Closer Bond's Learn & Play Puppy Program is your answer!

Your pup will engage in daily social play with puppies of their own playstyle, temperament, and age while being trained in manners and obedience cues by our staff!

Your pup will come to A Closer Bond five times for a full day of learning, play, and social development. While we encourage doing this program twice a week, you choose which days you want your puppy to attend. The purpose of the package is to provide exposure to a variety of people, places, objects, and sounds. From basic commands, grooming, agility, and proper play with humans to help your puppy grow into a well-mannered dog. All we ask is that you have your pup here by 9AM and pick up after 4PM. Includes one group lesson at the end of your training to learn everything your puppy has.

You can add extra days once your pup completes the program. This program is for puppies 8 weeks to 5 months old. Not ready to do the whole program? Individual days can be purchased. We guarantee your pup will go home calmer and wiser!
