We've been there!

The conflicting information is frustrating and is enough to make your head spin.

Do we use puppy pee pads? Do we not use them?

Which harness is best?

Should my puppy be sleeping through the night?

When will my puppy actually start listening to me?

Why does my puppy pee soooo much??

Level Up Pup! answers your questions. And explains why we recommend the things we do.

 

Level Up Pup! goes beyond the basics.


This program focuses on teaching a solid foundation for life skills that will help you and your pup for years to come by:

Creating a dog who is calm, able to focus and follow cues, able to regulate their own energy.

Establishing basic cues such as Sit, Down, Stay, Come when Called and more.

Strengthening learned behaviours week by week, slowly and systematically to ensure your puppies are successful at each stage of the training.

Progressing from getting behaviours reliable around the home to the real world, like when visitors enter your home, when out on walks, and when traveling.

 

Level Up Pup! Covers:

  • House training

  • Crate training

  • Basic obedience cues

  • Greeting visitors

  • Handling and conditioning for nail trims, grooming, and veterinary procedures

  • Walking on leash

  • How to properly socialize your new puppy

  • How to train a puppy that can be calm and settle in any situation

  • Checklists on how and where to practice

 

Level Up Pup! is a good choice for you if you:

  • Feel confused and overwhelmed by all the conflicting info out there

  • Are willing to put in the time to practice with your puppy

  • Know you do not want to punish or correct your puppies behaviour

  • Have a strong desire to build a good relationship with your dog

  • Looking to train your dog to be focused and follow cues reliably

Level Up Pup! is also available for adult dogs who are not currently displaying any behaviour problems.

FAQs

How is Level Up Pup! different than most puppy obedience classes

Level Up Pup! focuses on life skills, skills that will stick with a puppy into adulthood, and help them to become well-adjusted and adaptable adults.

How much time will I need to spend training with my puppy?

We do recommend practicing for 5-10 minutes a few times a day. However, our program shows you how to incorporate training into your daily routine so training is easier and skills are practiced where they are needed most, in real-life situations.

How are Life Skills different from Basic Obedience Skills?

Obedience skills (sit, down, stay, etc), while important, do not teach our puppies the skills needed to emotionally handle various situations or changes. Life skills helps prevent fear, over-arousal, and emotional instability. For more info on life skills check out our blog on the subject.

What if my puppy is older than 5 months?

Starting early does have it's advantages, but the skills learned within this program are suitable for dogs of all ages. We've had puppies as young as 8 weeks, as well as adult dogs, be successful with this program.

Does online training really work?

Yes it does!
Dog training, in general, is about owner education. Whether the topic is: house training, leash walking, sit, or stay, it is the owners who are learning new skills along with their puppy.

Level Up Pup! gives you everything you need to confidently train your puppy at home. See our blog on Virtual Dog Training.
