Puppy Pre-School

Puppy pre-school is a 3-week course. The course is designed to set you and your puppy up for a lifetime of success. For the puppies, we focus on building confidence, socializing to new objects, people, handling, and other dogs. For the owners, we discuss topics such as first aid, grooming, proper introductions, and what future obedience training would look like with Pawlished.

  • Dogs must attend all 3 weeks of the program in order
    to graduate.

  • Puppies must be 8-16 weeks of age at their first
    week of class.

  • All puppies must be accompanied by a minimum
    of 1 owner. However, we encourage the entire
    household to participate.

  • All puppy pre-school graduates receive 10% off of all training
    services for the puppy’s lifetime at Pawlished.

  • Puppy Pre-School package: $50.00 (includes all 3 weeks and materials).

You must email to register your puppy ahead of time.

Private Lessons

Private Lessons are one on one sessions between you and the trainer. They are designed to include a heavy in-home work load for the owner, making sure that dogs are ready to move forward each lesson.

  dog for the next lesson
- Owner learns the step by step process to teaching commands
- Dog learns to transfer each command into home environment one at a time
- Can be tailored more specifically to owner and dog needs for the week
