Puppy Training

“He’s so tiny and cute – I love it when he jumps on me!”

What’s cute at 3 months of age is not so cute at 6 months of age, it’s frustrating at 9 months of age, and by 12 months of age, it’s a major issue.... Puppy training while they’re young can make a world of difference in your dog’s quality of life!

Blue Ridge Dog Training provides a special puppy training program designed to teach puppies the skills they need to grow into well-mannered dogs! Puppies in the 8 - 16 week age range are still in their critical socialization period, and can be easily guided towards good behaviors. After 16 weeks of age, a puppy's behavior begins to shift toward that of an adolescent dog. 


From first-time dog owners to seasoned puppy raisers, everyone could use tips on how to train a puppy. We teach you, the dog’s family, how to communicate with your dog from the time they are a puppy, and as they grow into a dog.


Our Puppy Training Program includes:

  • Housebreaking

  • Relaxing in the house

  • Excessive behaviors like chewing and digging

  • Greeting visitors

  • Your puppy's exercise needs

  • Walking on a leash

  • Basic manners


Our puppy program begins at 7 weeks of age, and consists of 2 extended, 2-hour lessons in your home. Our program also includes a custom written training manual, as well as unlimited remote support (phone, email & text) during the training period. 

Start your relationship off right, and you’ll avoid so many common behavior problems from the puppy months and into adulthood. Should you ever need more assistance, you’re always able to upgrade your puppy package to our exclusive commitment-based training package. We’re here until your goals are achieved!
