Daisy, Kristy's dog


"We worked with Kristy on our shy/fearful dog. She is a gift to dogs and humans alike. Not only does she have the knowledge, she has the ability to make the dog AND the humans feel at ease, which is essential for everyone's learning and success." Catie S.

Puppy Socialization

The all-important puppy socialization. This is for puppies prior to 16 weeks of age. Puppies need to be exposed to as many possible things in a non-scary way during the sensitive period which ends between 12-16 weeks of age. Kristy will work with you and your puppy to maximize your puppy's experiences. The more positive experiences, the less scary the world will be for your dog as an adult.
