Puppy Essentials Workshops Landing Page Header Image

New puppy? Then you've probably got questions.
Crate training, nipping, barking, socialization, jumping, basic obedience, and the ever-elusive potty training? Don't worry!
Our virtual Essentials Workshops will walk you through everything you need to know.

Is your dog a puppy in spirit, but not necessarily in age? Our workshops are open to dogs of all ages. Some workshops are geared specifically for puppies or newly adopted young adult dogs, while others are for all life stages. We also offer one-on-one virtual training sessions perfect for dogs of all ages or if you're looking for help with a behavior not covered in our workshop topics.

Each Puppy Essentials Online Workshop Includes:

✔️A LIVE virtual small-group session with a certified dog trainer and behavior consultant
✔️Lifetime access to workshop materials, resources, and videos
✔️In-depth how-to's and problem solving
✔️Discussion and Q&A
✔️Connection with fellow puppy owners
✔️Video demonstrations
✔️Follow-up email support
