Calm Canine Academy’s signature 4-week (8-class scheduled twice weekly) puppy raising program takes you through this vital and formative period in your puppy’s development. Work on a combination of socialization, puppy management, and basic training to optimize this critical developmental stage, build confidence and communication, and teach them the rules and boundaries of our human world.  

 

This class covers puppy topics like house training, separation training, puppy nipping, and more while teaching the 8 foundation cues needed to thrive with a heavy focus on impulse control behaviors like wait, drop it, leave it, and settling down. We find focusing on these areas helps raise the most healthy, balanced dog and avoids behavior problems developing down the line.

 

All students get exclusive access to a class Whatsapp group where they can reach out to their trainers for advice in between classes. The digital format allows us to train in real life scenarios (e.g. around food in the kitchen) with real time coaching from your certified trainer: seamlessly integrating training with daily life so you can raise a confident, cooperative and calm canine.
