Puppy combo sessions

Pre-Puppy Course consult + Puppy Course

Ahhh…Congratulations, you are now the proud parent of a new fur kid in your life!

You may have had a puppy before (but that was a few years ago); or you’ve never owned a dog before; or your kids have begged for a pup and have promised to help look after it.

Along with welcoming a new pup, you are prepared for the occasional toileting accident to happen inside. BUT wait, it’s only been a few days and you quickly realise this precious pup is the Energiser Bunny. It keeps going and going and going and you’re not sure if it has an “Off” switch. It is unsettled at night; it pees everywhere and the nipping with its sharp teeth is unbelievable.

No one told you it was going to be this challenging. Is this the new norm? How long will this last for?

Seeking advice before your pup arrives or has just arrived in your home is invaluable. At K9 FUNdamentals we help owners who want to know the ins and outs of what to expect with a pup in the house. We help turn “We had no idea that it would be like this” into “Ah, I know how to cope with this”. Our aim is to help you become a confident and relaxed fur kid parent that looks forward to years and years of a rewarding life together.

Our Pup Consultation + Puppy Course combo consists of 5+ hours of help at an investment of $360:

  • 1 x 90-minute Pre- Puppy course consultation at your home. This consultation is designed to kick start the journey of successful teamwork between you and your pup.

  • 3-week Puppy course (3 x 75 minute classes) covering foundational learning related to behaviour and socialisation

Contact us know to book this combo package and give your pup a great start to life with you and your whānau.
