Paws-itive Puppy Program
According to the Journal of American Veterinarian Medical Association, behavior problems are the greatest threat to the human-animal bond. In fact, behavior problems are the number-one reason why dogs are relinquished to shelters. A bad experience or lack of experience during the first 4 months of a puppy’s life can lead to behavior problems. The proper socialization techniques utilized in the Puppy Start Right Program will help prevent future behavior problems such as 1) Aggression toward dogs and people; 2) fear of people, places, and things; 3) anxiety related problems; and 4) nuisance behaviors such as jumping, chewing, stealing objects, and excessive barking. Let us help you provide physical and emotional stability as well as learning through novel experiences during early development
