Our Puppy Training Services Begin in Your Home

puppy stealing paperApplause 4 Educated Paws training begins as soon as your new puppy comes home. Puppies that are not fully vaccinated can begin learning because the first part is done in the safety of your home. Seeing the floor plan of each home also allows for assistance with crate placement as well as house training challenges.

This creative approach to training puppies has, at last, given puppy owners the help they need as puppy-hood developmental stages begin to clash with everyday family life. House training, puppy biting, compliance to commands, are just a few of the puppy challenges that we can help you with. The most pertinent goal is setting a solid foundation with puppy manners that create a family companion that will be welcome in the home and out in public areas.
