Puppy Training at A Closer Bond

Puppies learn most of their lifelong beliefs during the first four months of their life! Socializing your puppy and teaching them skills during this time period help ensure a strong and rewarding relationship for life. A Closer Bond’s exclusive puppy training programs give your young one broad exposure to new people, places, objects, and sounds. Your puppy deserves the best opportunity to learn about the world in a safe, controlled environment in order to develop into the most confident and happy adult!

A Closer Bond’s puppy training programs are structured, interactive, educational and social play experiences tailored for the needs of puppies. They’ll get to:

  • Practice and learn appropriate social skills with new friends (canine and human!)
  • Experience new sights, sounds, smells, and settings
  • Receive puppy-specific training sessions to help establish early obedience and good manners
  • Be introduced to the handling and environment of the grooming salon
  • Get familiar with a pet resort experience
  • Enjoy comfortable rest periods in their own private, climate-controlled accommodations

Puppy Preschool

This group learning experience includes 3 puppy training classes led by one of our professional dog trainers. It starts with a private consultation where we’ll teach you how to solve common puppy concerns like play biting and house training while focusing on your individual goals and challenges. During the three group classes, you’ll continue working to develop good behaviors, manners, and social development and get the support you need to redirect undesirable behaviors. We want your puppy to be confident and comfortable around different people, places, and objects!
