HEADStart Puppy

Our HEADStart Puppy is based on and follows the PUPPY START RIGHT Curriculum developed by Dr. Ken Martin & Debbie Martin for Karen Pryor Academy. It is taught by certified instructor Heather Lawson, KPA CTP, CPDT-KSA.  The Puppy Start Right curriculum ensures you and your puppy have all the skills you need to get off to a great start.


The period between 8-20 wks. of age is the critical stage when social development and behaviour is formed.  This is an important stage in your puppy's social and mental development so it is very important to get your puppy out into the world to experience what life will be like with you.  Positive experiences will provide your new puppy with all the tools they'll need to grow up and be a Good Canine Companion during this critical stage.  

We're here to help you get off to a positive start by providing you with the basic manners every puppy needs to know and show you how to keep the momentum of learning going.

Puppy Foundation includes:

  • Follow Me - Learning to walk on a loose lead

  • Coming When Called

  • Greeting Our Guests - No jumping please, go to YOUR SPOT
