Head Start Puppy Program

The easiest time to train and socialize your dog is when she’s under six months old — although it’s never too late. When socializing your new dog or puppy, she will long for, look at, and follow anyone who acts calm and self-assured.

My Head Start Puppy Program will teach you how to use simple words, food and toys to communicate with your puppy, direct her behavior, reward cooperation and build confidence. It’s easy and fun! 

Head Start Pups Learn

  • Potty Training & Problem Solving
  • Puppy Lessons-Sit, Come, Place & more
  • Leash Training & Listening Skills
  • Sleep Training
  • Socialization
  • Conditioning to Lifetime Goal, e.g.. Therapy Dog

Reach out to me, and we can develop a learning program, so you never have to deal with reactive or unwanted behavior patterns.  

Puppy training starts with one 90-minute lesson; follow up lessons support your journey.  The first puppy session includes  my Puppies for Dummies book. 

The cost for the first 90-minute visit is $ 325; follow up lessons can be arranged individually or as a discounted lesson package.


“We started with the Head Start Puppy Program when our puppy was a rambunctious three-month old. We feel so fortunate to have Sarah working with our family. She is a godsend, and a dogsend!
