Pre-puppy consult

If you've never raised a puppy before, or if its been awhile since you did, a pre-puppy consult is for you! This 2 hour session is held BEFORE you get your dog. In the session we cover all the key aspects of starting off a new puppy including equipment needed, how to handle the first few days at home, recommended resources for when you have questions, the tricks to short and successful housetraining and feeding a young pup.  In addition, we'll review how and where you will keep your pup once you get it home based on your living space and the rhythm of your family. If you have not yet selected a puppy we can help you understand what breeds might be right for you and what to look for when choosing a dog.  This consult is 90 minutes and costs $150.
