If you've got a puppy under 6 months old, we're here to help! You have SO MANY GREAT OPTIONS!
Our team can help you with:
Building important skills like walking on leash and coping with distractions
Limiting unwanted behaviors like biting/mouthing
Choose your training options:
For puppies 8-14 weeks old, start with Kindergarten! For puppies 4-5 months old, check out First Grade! And for any puppies, check out Puppy Agility! All classes are on a "rolling" basis so you can start ASAP. Classes are held at two locations, north and south Austin.
Private training is an excellent way to get your puppy started on the right path! Check out our Puppy Package, which includes a private training session with you and three "tutoring" sessions to work directly with your puppy. This is a great starting point for new puppy training!
Need some extra help, but struggling to find the time? Sign your puppy up for a half-day of training, socialization, and enrichment. They'll learn from our team of certified trainers in a safe environment, at our Community Center. This is great paired with other training options!
Need some financial assistance? No problem!

Frequently Asked Questions About Puppy Training
When should I start training my puppy?
As early as possible! We allow puppies into our programs as soon as they're 8 weeks old and are 1 week past their first round of vaccinations. Puppies DO NOT need to be fully vaccinated to work with us! In fact, waiting that long would mean missing the "critical socialization period" and could lead to lifelong behavior issues. We use cleaning protocols to keep puppies safe while they're still getting their boosters. Learn more HERE.
What's the best training option for my puppy?
There are so many good options! We recommend Kindergarten for puppies 8-14 weeks old because of the benefits of group socialization. Adding on private training is a great way to help with specific issues that we don't cover as much in class. Our Puppy Day School is a great add-on to have our trainers work directly with your puppy to practice the skills you're already working on.
