Puppy Kindergarten® Training

Puppy Kindergarten ®

Let us help make life easier on you and jumpstart your puppy’s behavior off to the right start!

Our comprehensive training program focuses on the core issues an owner will face when a puppy first enters the home – potty training, crate training, leash training, safe socialization, puppy handling, establishing a routine and much more.

The earlier you start training, the easier it will be.

  • Puppy Prep:

    One-on-one consultation with the trainer and the new puppy owners on what to expect when puppy arrives home and supplies needed.

Puppy Kindergarten ® Curriculum:
  • Potty Training:

    Building the foundation of consistent reinforcement and routine of training your dog to go to the potty outside.

  • Crate Training:

    Introducing the puppy to the crate. This helps establish the crate as a safe and welcoming place the puppy can feel secure.

  • Leash Training:

    Introduce him to the collar or harness and leash. Creating skills that will allow him to walk comfortably without pulling.

  • Safe Socialization:

    Includes socialization to people and other animals in a safe environment, introducing new environments and how to throw a puppy party.

  • Puppy Handling:

    Preparing your puppy for handling by veterinarians, groomers and others.

  • Basic Command Training:

    Introducing puppy to basic commands like potty command, crate command, name recognition, "sit" and "down".

Puppy Kindergarten® is designed to ensure that your puppy receives urgent training at the earliest possible time. All of these training issues are imperative and should be introduced within the first three months of life.

  • Virtual Support:

    One month of free virtual support to the family once the puppy finishes the Puppy Kindergarten program.

About Us

My name is Courtney Boeglen and as far back as I can remember, I have had a lifelong passion for all animals. Throughout my journey I learned to love and care for all animals in all walks of life.

I have an amazing husband and three wonderful children. My goal has always been to raise my three children the best way possible. It might sound crazy, but here is an insider’s tip - little children and puppies are remarkably similar in so many ways. Children need nurturing, guidance, obedience, and structure to grow up and have the best chance for success in life. Puppies need these basic life principles as well.

I had this belief that if puppies came with a step by step guide with instructions, then new pet parents and families would experience better animal ownership. I then set out to create a training curriculum that explains exactly what to do with your new puppy. That led me to create Puppy Kindergarten®, to help provide new puppy parents with this proven training method in their everyday life. As a puppy trainer and animal enthusiast I will break down your puppy’s behavior into an easy to understand language and explain how the use of a good schedule in your puppy’s life can set the foundation for long lasting good habits for your puppy and help families experience better animal ownership.

My hope is that by sharing what I have learned over my many years as a dog trainer, I can help families enjoy better canine companionship.

The growth of Puppy Kindergarten® has now grown to include my wonderful team. I have hand selected and trained our team members in the proven Puppy Kindergarten®method to become Fully Certified Puppy Kindergarten® Trainers. We work together as an extended family, to fully develop your puppy’s behavior, during their time here at Puppy Kindergarten®.

I am so excited that our family gets to help your family welcome its newest member into their “furever” home.
