Hartford Dog Trainer
We’re excited to offer your pups, especially those under the 5 month age limit a puppy program to get started before any of our intensive programs! As we often mention, no dog should be entered into an intensive obedience program such as ours while being younger than 5 months. Between potty training, proper crate training and socialization, being a puppy parent can be a lot. That being said, we are happy to help you manage and work with your new puppy during those first few months!
Be sure to ask your representative about the puppy program for your puppy under 5 months!
