Helping You From The Start

If you are getting a new puppy and don't know where to start, this is the package for you. Get help with recommended equipment, setting up your home, transporting your puppy from the breeders, and what to do in those first few days, nights and weeks.

Over three separate in-person sessions (with additional phone/email support), I will be on hand to help you hit the ground running as soon as your puppy comes home.

Each session is designed just for you, so you get the most out of our 1:1 sessions. I'll guide you through those early weeks to help make life with your new pup as easy as possible.

What Are The Benefits Of Starting Training Early?

It's never too early to start planning for your new puppy. Most people underestimate how much a puppy will change their life. They bring home this lovely bundle of fluff and then soon realise puppies come with razor-sharp teeth and like to use them!

My Pre-Puppy Package is all about getting you ready before your new pup comes home. Understanding what to expect, how to make their transition from the breeder's home to yours less stressful, and creating a plan to make toilet training, chewing, and redirecting play-biting easier.

There is so much information online; it can be hard to know what to trust. Science is always moving forward, and we know so much more about our puppies. A lot of what you find online is out of date and can even create more problems than it solves in the long term.


Common questions that an online search will more often than not give you the wrong answer include:

  • Should you leave your puppy alone from day one to get used to it?

  • Is using "No" an effective way to discourage behaviours?

  • Should all dogs be crated?

  • Should you leave your puppy to cry?

  • Does letting your puppy sleep with you at the beginning mean they will never be able to sleep alone?

  • Is my puppy trying to be dominant?

My consultation is based on the latest research, so I can help you make the right choices to help give your puppy confidence and make sure you have the very best relationship with your puppy.
