Puppy Consults

I offer personalized puppy consults for new puppy parents, providing expert guidance to ensure a smooth and successful start to their journey. My consultations cover essential aspects of puppy care, training, and health, equipping new puppy parents with the knowledge and confidence to raise a happy and well-adjusted puppy.

Why a puppy consult?

A puppy consult is crucial for new puppy parents, as the excitement of bringing home a new furry friend can often lead to missing important details shared at pickup. I provide comprehensive guidance to ensure that nothing is overlooked. This ensures a smoother transition and sets the foundation for a happy, well-adjusted puppy.

I help to take the pressure off of the puppy provider, be it a breeder, or rescue. Instead of new puppy parents coming to the puppy provider with their frustrations and training concerns, I can be available to them as a dedicated resource. My support ensures that parents receive the expert guidance they need, reducing the burden on the puppy provider and fostering a positive experience for both the puppy and their new family.

I'll start by asking questions about the current routine to better understand potential needs. Based on that information, I'll provide personalized tips to enhance the specific situation.

And More!

We will also cover manners, explore opportunities for future training classes, and discuss goals and aspirations for the puppy's development. Our conversations may lead to discussions about other helpful topics as well. If our session is beneficial and there's a desire to meet again, I offer additional sessions at an affordable rate.

My Clients Say

"Alexandra has been the best thing that could have happened to us when we got our 8 week old puppy. We managed to avoid so many mistakes thanks to her advice and she really helped us raise a happy puppy. Alexandra advised us on crate training, puppy proofing our house, ensuring our not-yet-vaccinated, super active puppy got enough socialization and exercise, teaching a few essential commands all the way to proper leash walking. We could not have done it without her. Whenever we are at a puppy social listening to other people struggling with leaving the house or sleeping through the night, we silently thank her."
