Puppies Puppies Puppies! (Age 6-18 weeks)
Much like human children, puppies learn through play. With young puppies, we call this socialization: when puppies learn how to be around new things in their world.
Research shows that puppies who receive thoughtful and systematic socialization before they are 18 weeks old (a critical developmental period) are the most likely to become well-adjusted adults.
Ann Howie and Patti Howard of Your Canine Resource provide weekly puppy play and socialization groups for puppies 6-18 weeks of age. You get four weeks of one-hour groups for just $100. Groups are on-going throughout the year, and pre-registration is required.

Adult Canine Training & Behavior
Ann meets with you privately in your home or in her heated-in-the-winter/cooled-in-the-summer facility. You will feel understood as she works to clarify your needs and goals with your dog. Your dog will feel understood as Ann teaches you how to work with your dog in a way that respects your dog’s point of view and results in the behavior you desire.
Do you have a shy dog? Ann knows how to work with shy dogs at the dog’s pace to help your dog gain confidence and have fun with you. She gives you techniques to work with your dog rather than at cross-purposes. We humans seldom intend to do things that are confusing to our dogs, yet without understanding our dog’s point of view, we can cause them distress.
