Specific behaviors to address

Introduction
How well you train and socialize your new puppy in its first few weeks sets the stage for its success in the years to come. Working with a new puppy is a full-time job, so I have made it mine! I have been raising foster puppies for 9 years and have had hundreds of dogs come through my door. Animal welfare is my passion and while working with multiple rescues and shelters, I noticed how many dogs were surrendered by their owners due to basic behavioral issues. Many such issues, like potty-training, crate-training, and socialization, can be solved with time, effort, and the guidance of an experienced trainer before becoming the type of problem that strains the relationship between puppy and owner. The goal of Puppy Preparatory School is to set puppies up for success in their new homes and help prevent negative behaviors in the future.

We were referred to Jamie by our friend who had a very positive experience. We were not disappointed. Jamie was very thorough upfront on what expectations we had and whether they were pie in the sky goals we had for our puppy. She was VERY RESPONSIVE to all of our questions/concerns before, during and after our puppys training. Our puppy was 16 weeks when we hired her and when we finished the training he was crate trained and mostly potty trained. Her knowledge and professionalism made it a no brainier for us when we selected her for training. She also offered assistance after our training period was over. Our dog is now 6 1/2 months old and is a sweetheart. We highly recommend her and have already referred PUPPY PREPARATORY to many of our friends. You wont be disappointed!

Asher has been going to Jamie since he was 10 weeks old. First for 4 week boarding where she covered everything you would need: crate, potty, socialization and commands! We have continued to use Jamie thru the day train offering to continue improvement ( commands and training are daily routines and tasks for Asher and strengthens our etiquette as a growing young man). Fantastic news that Jamie is offering this program and Asher cant wait to see all his fur friends. I HIGHLY recommend Puppy Preparatory whether you are are first time dog mom like me OR value early education in puppies!

I sent my puppy there for the 4 week board and train program and I highly recommend Jamie! She sends updates constantly which made me feel better about being away from my pup for so long. She is highly professional and really helped my puppy with obedience and commands!

Our 3 1/2 month old dude, Riggins stayed with Jamie at Puppy Preparatory for 2 weeks. Jamie is very responsive and does a great job of keeping you up to date on your dogs progress. Riggins was clearly welcomed into the pack right away and Jamie loved on him as we would. He learned a lot and he loved being at Puppy Preparatory. Riggins is 10 months old now and is going to be staying at Puppy Preparatory for a refresher course while we are out of town. We highly recommend Puppy Preparatory!

Thank you so much, Amanda! We enjoyed Riggins so much during his Board & Train Program and are looking forward to seeing him again. We can't wait to see how much he has grown and help him brush up on all of his training!

Inola attended Puppy Preparatorys puppy daycare from early November through December. Jamie always checked to see if there were any areas of focus we wanted her to address as daycare included not only socialization but also obedience training. Inola was always eager to go to Jamies and was always exhausted after attending.

Thank you so much, Lauren! We really appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. We absolutely loved working with Inola and hope to see her again soon!!
