Puppy
Training

A training consultation is required prior to booking any puppy services.
 

Your puppy is never too young to start training! In fact if you get your puppy from a reputable breeder or reputable rescue, your puppy's training will have begun long before you bring them home. With these packages designed specifically for the unique needs of a new puppy, your puppy will be set up to successfully become the well-behaved dog of your dreams. Puppies must be 4 months old or younger at their program's scheduled start time to be eligible for puppy services.

Don't wait! Book your training consultation today so you can begin your Puppy Training program the moment your puppy comes home. 

There are a variety of Puppy Training packages available to meet the needs of you and your pet!

Perfect Puppy Placement Package

Each year, millions of pets wind up in shelters across the USA. I strongly believe this could be avoided if owners were able to select the pet that would be the best fit for their home, lifestyle, and goals and dedicate more time to training after they bring their pet home. Set you and your puppy up for success and watch your new puppy grow up into the dog of your dreams with this package. Your trainer will guide you every step of the way so you can select the best puppy for you and start your puppy off with the training it needs to be a well-mannered dog.

Your trainer will spend the first session getting to know you (and your family) and learning about your expectations and goals for your puppy so she can recommend the best breed or puppy for your needs. Your trainer will provide you with the information and assessments you need to locate the reputable breeder or responsible shelter that can provide you with your new puppy. Once you have found a potential litter or rescue puppy, your trainer will help you assess and temperament test the puppy so you can ensure you are bringing home the puppy you've been looking for. Finally, once your puppy is home, your trainer will meet with you for a training session to help you and your puppy settle happily into life at home.
This package may take place in person or online.

What's included?

  • One 30-60 minute "Get to Know You" session so your trainer can recommend the best dog for you

  • One assessment/temperament test of a litter or shelter/rescue pup

  • One 60-90 minute Training Consultation/Session to help transition your puppy into your home

Your relationship with King's Creatures doesn't end after your last follow up session! Lifelong support means that you will have access to training advice and support for life! Your lifelong training support will include:

  • Access to the KCAT Community, a Facebook group exclusively for King's Creatures training clients

  • Calls, texts, and emails with Laura King, certified trainer and owner of King's Creatures, during business hours

  • The chance to hone your handling skills and proof your pet's obedience through participating in monthly KCAT Pet Socials at pet-friendly businesses throughout the Corridor

This program is just the beginning of training, and is best followed by another complete training package.

Program Cost: $105*
