Service Description

Our Private Puppy/Welcome Home Class helps you get prepared for your new furry family member! You can schedule your first visit either before or after you bring your pup home. All Seventh Heaven Training Classes include the following: * You will have access to an online folder where you can upload video or download video, your handbook and bonus training protocols will be loaded onto your site. * You can ask questions in a chat with me and your training team. * You will have access to videos to go along with most of the lessons. * At our first session you will be provided a printed handbook, clickers for your family and a foot target. Starting from the premise that our goal is for your dog to have freedom and agency, we will discuss setting limits while your dog is getting used to her new home, keeping a close eye on her, and starting as you want to have things go. This is a five session package. Each session is 45 minutes long. * Our first session which can take place either before or after you bring your pup home we will build a Management Plan. This plan will include things like potty training, using a house leash, creating zones in your home where your dog can expect play, quiet time, etc. and more. * If you have a puppy, we will start the potty training process and I will give you plenty of information and tips based on your setup and availability. * You will learn about body language, safe socialization, introducing new objects, sounds, and people without flooding your pup. * You will also learn about the value of nap schedules and letting your pup learn to be alone periodically throughout the day so that you don't end up with a clingy or anxious pup when you leave the house or need to work. * We will work on some beginning training behaviors and go through the outline of training a behavior. Mostly we will work on impulse control and stopping problem behaviors before they become an issue like nipping, jumping and problem leash behaviors. * There will be fun activities and training games for kids included in every session if there are children in the home or you have children over on a regular basis. Since this is a private class, we will customize the later sessions to work on issues that are important to you, we will get to work on behaviors in your home environment, and with the people in your home. You can choose to add some puppy play classes for socialization.
