Here's What Our Puppy Training Program Offers

Our Puppy Training Program is designed to lay a strong foundation for your young pup’s lifelong obedience and good behavior! We understand that early training is crucial for shaping your puppy into a well-mannered and well-adjusted adult dog, which is why our program focuses on gentle, positive reinforcement techniques tailored to your puppy’s unique needs.

Here’s what you can expect from our Puppy Obedience Lessons:

Customized Training Plan: We begin with a completely Free Puppy Obedience Lesson. On this lesson we will be conducting a thorough assessment of your puppy’s behavior, temperament, and your training goals using our simple and effective 5 step process. Based on this evaluation, we develop a personalized training plan tailored to meet your unique needs.

Early Socialization: We emphasize the importance of early socialization to help your puppy become comfortable and confident in various environments and around different people and animals. Our program includes supervised play sessions and exposure to new experiences to promote positive social interactions.

Basic Obedience Commands: We introduce essential obedience commands such as sit, down, stay, come, and leash walking in a fun and engaging way suitable for young puppies. Through positive reinforcement techniques like treats and praise, we make learning enjoyable and rewarding for your puppy.

Puppy Biting Training: We address common biting behaviors in puppies through gentle and effective methods designed to teach bite inhibition. By using positive reinforcement techniques such as treats and praise, we guide your puppy to understand appropriate play, biting behavior and social interactions. Our approach ensures that your puppy learns to manage their natural biting instinct in a safe and enjoyable manner, fostering good habits early on.

Potty Training Guidance: While not the primary focus of this program, we provide guidance and tips on effective potty training techniques to help you establish a routine and set your puppy up for success in this important area of development.

Behavior Management: We address common puppy behaviors such as chewing, mouthing, and jumping, providing you with strategies to manage and redirect these behaviors effectively.

Family Involvement: We encourage active participation from you and your family members in the training process to promote consistency and reinforce learning outside of formal training sessions. We provide guidance on how to continue training at home to maintain progress between lessons.

Positive Reinforcement and Gentle Handling: Our trainers use positive reinforcement methods and gentle handling techniques to build trust and confidence in your puppy, fostering a strong bond between you and your furry companion.

Guaranteed Results, Continuous Support and Guidance: With our Results Guarantee we promise to reach the goals that you set forth at the start of the Puppy Training Program and we will provide unlimited lessons until those goals are reached. Our commitment to your success doesn’t end with the lessons. We also provide unlimited ongoing phone and email support, to address any challenges or refine skills over the lifetime of your puppy

With our Puppy Training Program, you’ll set your puppy on the path to becoming a well-behaved, obedient, and happy member of your family. Investing in early training not only sets the stage for good behavior but also strengthens the bond between you and your puppy, creating a rewarding and fulfilling relationship for years to come.

Brice is simply the best. His goal is to be every customer’s last trainer and he is definitely ours. My pup momo is very smart but also very independent (read: stubborn) and in just two weeks she was an obedient little working dog. Regardless of the challenges you have have with your dog, I’m confident Brice can help you solve them.

Brice helped teach my dog and me several life-changing walking skills in our first 1-hour training session. I went from having extreme anxiety about walking my dog, to feeling much more in control and able to handle him.

I am very grateful to have had Montreal spend time with my dog who I was beginning to think I had no control over. He has thoroughly explained the behavior and how to change it and given me all I need to keep the work going so that I can feel more confident walking my dog!! Totally recommend Montreal.

Great experience with Total Dog. I have a stubborn as hell Bull Terrier and Montreal, one of the behaviorist trainers did an outstanding job with him. From obedience commands to walking on a leash (which he outright wouldn’t do before). Very impressed and very grateful. Montreal is one of the best.

Montreal trained my mom’s dog Elvis who was at the time showing aggressive/reactive behavior. We thought we had no hope. We were going to re-home him or put him down. Montreal taught us that patience and leadership is the key to success. In two weeks we had a changed dog. We knew that we had a lot more work to be done also by us as pet parents it has now been four months and Elvis is doing great thanks to Montreal for showing us how to have patience with our fur baby I would definitely recommend him as one of total dogs best trainers

At Total Dog! We provide our clients with custom-made training programs designed around your specific goals and your dog’s unique learning style. Our training programs vary from dog to dog in structure, layout, duration and cost.

That’s why we don’t offer a one program fits all solution. Instead we offer a Free Consultation so that we can meet with you and your dog to evaluate factors such as lifestyle, goals, age, temperament, breed and previous training. That way we can develop a custom-made training program that perfectly fits your goals and needs!

We offer a Total Dog! dog training package that includes unlimited lessons until your dog reaches the goals identified at the start of the program. Following the program’s completion, you’ll have the opportunity to extend your dog’s training to help them reach new goals.

No, we don’t impose any breed restrictions. Total Dog! is an all-inclusive dog trainer that specializes in private dog-training for all kinds of dogs.

Right away! It’s true: you can teach an old dog new tricks and puppies are sponges for new information. While each dog has their own unique learning style and levels of maturity, as long as they’re awake, they’re learning.
At Total Dog!, we’re a truly all-inclusive dog training service. We work with dogs of all breeds and all ages.
