Train Your Puppy Right from the Start!

A puppy’s experiences in the first 3 months of life strongly influence what kind of companion he will grow to be and how he will react to the world. Will he be afraid of people in hats? Will he be aggressive toward other dogs? Or will he be easy going and adaptable in a variety of situations? Failure to properly expose a young puppy to certain situations or types of people during this brief early period can result in his being forever fearful of them as an adult. Early socialization—or the lack of it—is a vital determinant of a dog’s lifelong behaviors.

Puppies under 16 weeks must have clearance from their local vet, first round of Distemper, and a clear fecal.

 

Puppies over 4 months need full Distemper, and Bordetella.

 

All dogs over 6 months require Rabies and Canine Flu for boarding and daycare.

Puppy Imprint Grooming:

For puppies 6 months and younger

Grooming is a learned behavior. If your puppy does not know what is going on around them, they do not know how to feel.  Come to a one-on-one puppy imprint grooming session. Our professional groomers spend loving time while your puppy is on the grooming table becoming familiar with the sounds and touches that are involved with grooming. All of this is done in a non-stressful environment.

 

Please call (203) 838-7729 to schedule your appointment.

$45: 1-2 hour session includes bath, nail trim, gentle brushing in a positive nurturing environment to get your pup acclimated to a day at the spa!
