Puppies in this age range are in the critical window of socialization, yet, are not fully vaccinated and won't have a 'green light' from your veterinarian to be in all places - at least not with paws on the ground. The juxtaposition of these two circumstances can be challenging for parents who want to train their puppy to be relaxed and confident as adult canines but can't be carrying puppy all over the city!
Thankfully, prioritizing physical health doesn't have to come at the expense of long term behavioral health for our dogs. We offer a variety of options for pups before they are fully vaccinated maximizing the socialization period providing everything they need to be a confident, well-mannered, relaxed dog who you will be proud to take anywhere!

Puppies 16 weeks - 1 years
Most puppies are fully vaccinated around 16 weeks, and can now enjoy the view from four-on-the-floor...when they aren't jumping, that is! (Don't worry, we train for that.) At this stage, ongoing socialization remains an important part of puppy's day to day life, but is no longer a race against time. Now, teething is beginning and with higher energy levels and confidence, puppy needs a greater focus on the "DO" behaviors - chewing toys instead of furniture and feet, walking nicely on leash, coming when called, and sitting to say hello to people, for example.
Also at this time, you may find that puppy's curiosity about the world around them competes with their attention on you. They'll need training to ignore distractions like sticks and garbage on the ground, other dogs, birds, blowing leaves, and all other manner of interesting things! Our programs are designed to build great behavior early, ensuring a more harmonious relationship between you and your pup, all the while continuing valuable social experiences and guiding you through early adolescence!
