  • How to best set up a safe environment for your new puppy

  • What to expect of your new dog now and as your puppy grows up

  • What you need to buy for your puppy

  • Basic puppy training and pet dog manners (sit, down, no jumping, no barking etc.),

  • Breed specific issues that you need to be aware of

  • Behavior modification (object and food guarding, boredom, separation anxiety, fear, etc.)

  • Your pet’s needs (environmental enrichment, socialization, etc.)

  • In home behavior (confinement, house and toilet training, chewing, etc.

 

Training Consultation

Before this consultation, write down any questions and things that you feel will be important for your consultation. Also, as your dog trainer, I will ask you to discuss with your family what your “dream dog” does and how it behaves.

Bolshoy K9 Dog Training Consultations are most efficient with a dog that has no behavioral issues and is ready to learn. Usually this consultation lasts 1 ½ hours and focuses on giving you the tools to improve your dog’s obedience. This may cover topics like:

  • Basic dog training (including sit, drop, stay, walking on leash, out, etc.)

  • Teaching you the basics and principles of training that you can build on in the future

  • Preparing your dog for Bolshoy K9 Obedience classes
