Puppy Training

New Tricks For Your New Dog

Puppies have a small window of time during brain development when they are most impressionable. This critical learning period is usually up to the first 16 weeks of development. Puppies learn more during this time than they can learn in a life time.

We took our puppy Mischa here for puppy preschool. She loved it and we loved it. The trainers and staff I can tell honestly care about her and she REALLY loves going there. From a training standpoint, she is a much better listener and I think we’ve learned some good ways to work with her at home too. I would highly recommend them for training.

Shannon M.

Took our 5 month old puppy through the 2 week puppy preschool program and we couldn't be happier! He comes home happy and tired every night from training and socializing with other dogs throughout the day. The staff has been awesome and our puppy has shown a ton of progress in his training. Would definitely recommend No Leash Needed to anyone!
