PuppyLove & Basic Manners

Studies point out the importance of early group sessions for mental & social development, with the fastest, strongest benefits for contact with people before the pup is 16 weeks old. PuppyLove is a great place to start!
World-renowned lecturer, trainer, researcher Dr. Ian Dunbar recommends pups meet 100 people before they are 8 weeks old, and that they meet another 100 people before they are 16 weeks old. Dunbar is the founder of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, the largest dog trainers group in the world.
We are happy to provide private classes for young pups as well as teenage & adult dogs, especially if that is what your schedule and needs dictate. Both our private and small group classes teach pups how to focus around distractions, to respect and like other dogs and other breeds, and are a great foundation for happy, friendly dogs in the future.
Private sessions are available for Detouring Doggie Delinquents pets at our Osteen home base. Programs are geared to your family’s & dog’s individual needs. Periodically we also offer workshops & continuing education sessions for our Detour Doggie Delinquents teams.
