Training is conducted in the convenience of your home and on your schedule with a focus on helping you raise your puppy with as little stress as possible! We teach you how to address typical puppy issues like crate training, house breaking, mouthing, and jumping. How to avoid having your puppy develop unwanted behaviours such as excessive barking, digging and chewing.  We will also introduce your puppy to basic commands like sit, down, and come. Your puppy will learn to accept general handling for vet visits and grooming, and we provide you with a comprehensive plan for successful socialization.

Testimonial

Tara with Roo

I can't say enough about The Crunchy Canine. I initially contacted Katherine to help me train my 5 month old puppy. I've had previous dogs and they were always badly behaved, so I wanted to know the tricks to fix these behaviours. I learned so much that that I kept her on a little longer to help me with my 5 year old dog. All her ideas worked. I can proudly say I don't have bad dogs. I truly recommend them!
