By learning the best practices now, you’ll equip yourself with the tools needed for your pup’s future success. Set your puppy up for a lifetime of achievements and create a relaxed life for both of you. Owning a dog doesn’t have to be a struggle. Let me assist you in forging a strong bond, so you can proudly call your dog your lifelong best friend.

Getting a puppy is exciting and overwhelming. Anna does an wonderful job breaking out basic behaviors, things to build on later and things to help survive puppyhood with your sanity mostly intact. It’s the sexy life skills that I appreciate the most and helping set up ways for the puppy and parent to be eager to learn together successfully. “Learning to settle” for the win! It’s a way for the puppy to see a way to reinforcement and an opportunity for me to catch my breath and be ready for the next round.
Thank you Anna for setting up a thorough yet manageable lesson plan and feedback on places to tweak or explore. Much like providing some structure for a puppy, having the guidelines gave me helpful and predictive structure as well.

This puppy kindergarten course is a nice one for trainers as well ! As a young trainer, I decided to take this class to enlarge my toolbox with puppies and take inspiration from some lessons. The class is so well constructed, and even if it’s a label, I found Anna radiant in her videos with her big smile ! (And I also loved her dog-patterned rain coat but maybe this comment is off topic ! 😀
