Puppy Training
Puppies are adorable! Their behaviors are often excused.
But, they grow up so quickly that these behaviors can
become serious problems. Training should start the day you
bring your pup home. Let Denise help you create the perfect
beginning. The investment you make in training your pup
now will build a wonderful relationship and a lifetime of
happiness with your family.
Three in-home one hour sessions $365
Providing a personalized service of dog training for your
whole family in the environment where your dog spends
most of his time - your home.

Denise can help set up your home before the pup arrives

(read this testimonial
) ensuring that routines and commands
are consistent to build a strong foundation for your new
family member.

Boot Camp Dog Training School
Busy life style, not enough time to train your dog, don't feel
guilty, let I Talk Dog do it for you.
Your dog will live in Denise's home for two fun filled,
intensive and structured weeks. Only in a home environment
can your dog learn to behave correctly when he returns to
your home. This unique dog training program, provides such
an environment.

The lesson plan includes:
Basic obedience; come, sit/down and stay, walk on a loose
leash,
Behavior modification; no jumping on people, barking and
chewing inappropriately, house training, digging in the yard,
not ignoring you, being overly excited, and field trips for
socializing in public places, or any other behavior you would
like changed, as agreed upon in our initial meeting, to create
a happy home.

In Boot Camp, Denise uses the
E-Touch method. This
allows dogs to understand what is required to be a good
companion. Once learned, the training is easily passed on to
the owner.

After this foundation is established, you will meet your new,
well mannered dog and learn how to continue his/her
education in a training session with the Denise.
If, in the future, questions or problems arise, you may call for
help at no extra charge. This service is provided for the life
of your dog within your family.
Fee includes all dog training equipment. Please call for
available dates and price. Some problems are better suited
and addressed with in-home training. Please call for a free
phone consultation to discuss your dog's training needs.

"Denise has been such a great help
with Harley. He is almost like a new
dog, so much more well-behaved! We
recently got another German
Shepherd, named Bella. It was no
question that we would be using
Denise to help with training. My mom
has also started using Denise to
assist with training her Miniature
Dachshund, Sammy. I would
recommend Denise to anyone that
needs or wants help with training their
dogs!"

KONG toys in basic training.
Denise taught us how to “talk dog” and did it in
a fun and accessible way.  She taught my wife
and me how to understand what our puppy
needed so we could better teach and guide
our dog.  Denise taught us how to understand
what dogs respond to and respectfully pointed
out ways that we were unintentionally
contributing to or dog’s unwanted behaviors.
The changes in our dog’s behavior have been
significant!  Our puppy has learned all the
basic commands, is calmer, and continues to
show intense interest in learning!  Denise
offered simple and fun solutions that we enjoy
working on with our dog.  Since working with
Denise, I am now calmer and more confident in
how I deal with our puppy, and I feel like I have
the ability to set loving and respectful
boundaries which my dog respects.  
Consequently, our whole family, including our
puppy is spending much more time loving,
laughing, and enjoying one another.
