Puppy Training

Reserve Your Spot for our Basic Obedience & Socialization Group Class in September! 

Get your puppy started on the right foot by building a positive relationship from the start! 

This is NOT the puppy training that you receive in a group class!  Working with a behavior consultant enables you to train using techniques that can help problem behaviors from developing, and address any issues quickly.  Eileen gears training to your puppy's unique needs.  This is not the training you would receive in a group class or from a regular dog trainer.


Teach your puppy the behaviors you want from the get-go!  Puppies as young as eight weeks can start training.  Eileen uses fun positive-reinforcement based techniques that will have your dog enjoying training with you, always wanting more!  Training with Eileen is designed around training useful skills using fun, relationship-building techniques.  Eileen wants to help develop a confident dog who knows the right behaviors and WANTS to work for you.  

We will NEVER instill fear, intimidate, or use harmful or painful techniques on your dog.  Instead, we teach useful skills using fun, relationship-building techniques.  We do NOT use shock or prong collars, yelling, intimidation, noise aversives, or leash or collar corrections.  Our philosophy is that we want and need your dog's cooperation.  We want him/her to perform the behaviors willingly, so that they can make good behavioral choices in various situations.

New Puppy Consultations and other first time appointments are conducted over Zoom, but follow-up appointments may be done either in person or over Zoom.  Appointments will not be in public locations until puppies have completed all of their required vaccines (parvo, distemper, rabies, etc.) Appointments over Zoom in your home are perfect for puppies who are still awaiting their vaccines.  For puppies 16 weeks and older the first appointment is an Initial Private Training appointment (1.5 hour).  For puppies under 16 weeks the first appointment is Puppies Under 16 Weeks (1 hour).  In-person follow-up appointments must be at a location within 15 minutes drive of Confident Canines LLC (89143).  Follow-up appointments are usually every 1-2 weeks.
