Are you the proud owner of a new puppy? Or are you expecting a puppy soon? Let Canine Align help you get started on the right paw.
The Puppy Head Start package includes a 1.5 hour in-home consultation, three 1 hour training sessions, a puppy socialization passport, and a puppy handbook.
The puppy consultation can be booked before your puppy arrives, or when your puppy first arrives in the home.
Session 1: Puppy Consultation (1.5 hours).
We will cover how puppies think and learn, in home set-up, house training, bite inhibition, jumping, food and sleep routines, socialization, proper toys and games, physical and mental enrichment, and clicker training.
Session 2: Focusing Your Puppy (1.0 hours).
We will cover attention and focus, sit, stay, name recognition, jumping, mouthing and barking.
Session 3: A Walk in the Park (1.0 hours).
We will cover loose-leash walking, leave-it, ignoring distractions, polite greetings and introducing your puppy to a recall cue.
Session 4: Social and Handling Skills (1.0 hours).
We will discuss how dogs communicate, appropriate dog play, and calming techniques. We will introduce your puppy to different grooming and veterinary tools and touches so that they can participate cooperatively in their care. We will also introduce them to household noises and teach them appropriate behaviours when they hear the vacuum, doorbell and door knocking.
1.5 hour in-home consultation and training session followed by three 1 hour training sessions. You will also receive a written detailed training plan after each session.

Your puppy must have his or her second set of vaccinations by the third session. Your puppy must be between 8 and 20 weeks of age. The earlier you get them started, the more successful they will be growing up.
