Puppyhood feels hard.

From sleepless nights to seemingly endless messes, many new puppy guardians find themselves caught in a whirlwind of uncertainty and even adoption-remorse.

Traditional dog training methods may feel outdated or impractical, leaving you frustrated and questioning if you're on the right path.

Perhaps socialisation efforts have fallen short, leading to behavioural concerns that threaten the peace within your home.
The journey to a well-behaved, happy pup can often feel like a daunting puzzle with missing pieces.

I've got you.

I have taken two puppies to Caryn - they were very different and both got what they needed to get a good start in life. 

It is rare to find a trainer who has such respect for a dog that they take the time and apply their expertise to see what particular dogs need to do to express themselves and build their relationships.

I have also gotten very realistic and useful help in dealing with a troubled dog and I am very grateful for the compassion and care we received.

I really recommend Caryn.

But here's the thing. 

We are all burned out on Zoom and online courses.

We're living through a recession and things are tough. 

Hiring a private, in-home puppy trainer can be costly and you'll never get as much support as you need.

Puppy-raising has to be accessible and affordable. 

That's why I'm offering this bundle at an incredibly affordable rate. 

I truly want to help you and your dog live a happier life together, forever.

Caryn is AWESOME! 

I HIGHLY recommend them if you want to get your puppy started off on the right foot (or paw)!

My puppy (and I) learned so much. Now that she's a bit older, we're noticing just how much of a positive impact that their positive reinforcement ways have had on us as a family! 

She has her days, but she's honestly so well behaved (for her age) and she respects us a lot!

A BIG THANK YOU!!! You guys are amazing!!!!

Join now and get the puppy bundle, The First Year, PLUS...


Puppyhood isn't something that we go through and get through. It's a foundation-building process that sets the stage for your dog's life. You need support and I'm here for it. When you purchase The First Year, you'll get 12 months of our incredible community so that you can get questions answered as you progress. This includes regular Q&A sessions, guest mentors, interviews, a private podcast, and more! Our members are super welcoming and supportive!

Our Canine Foundations Bundle is what everyone with a dog needs in their back pocket! This bundle includes five mini courses: Body Language & Communication, Dogs 101, How Dogs Learn, Marker-Based Training, and Creating Food Motivation.

These are the perfect mini-courses to support your learning!

Adolescence hits around 6mo and you'll find that the hormones are raging, tempers are flaring, and you're left in the dust wondering what the heck happened to your sweet puppy.

This course prepares you for it and helps you work through the typical challenges.

Pulling on leash can be both frustrating and dangerous as your puppy grows into a full-sized dog of any size!

Furthermore, pulling on leash can lead to frustration and/or reactivity in your dog. Let's create some good habits on leash before you're stuck modifying a frustrating one.

Recall is probably the most important behaviour that you can teach your dog. Having them come to you every time you call could literally be a lifesaver. 

Teaching your puppy when they're young can create the strongest recall of all when they're older and more independent.

Yep. You read that right. You get our entire library of courses. That includes courses like Happy Home Alone, Cranky Canine, Polite Walking, Really Reliable Recall, and so many more! This means you can have a plethora of dog training help at your fingertips - not just puppy-related!
The best part? We just keep adding to the library. All. The. Time.

Wait a Second...

But don't I need in-person lessons or classes?

Sure! If you're enrolled in a well-run puppy class, The First Year is going to be the perfect supplement. I can give you the community and support and resources that a typical group class simply cannot.

Do you offer in-person lessons? 

Sure do! I teach out of Oakpark Pet Hospital in Oakville, Ontario (Canada). Click here to learn more! If that's too far, I also offer 1:1 virtual consults. Click here to book a time! Puppy classes are coming soon.

Listen. I've been doing this a long time and one of my super-skills is listening to people, not just dogs.

I know what it's like to raise a puppy and feel overwhelmed by the conflicting advice from many different sources. It's a struggle to know what is going to work and what is totally bogus and outdated. 

My job is to save you time hunting and pecking for bits and pieces of information that may or may not work, to provide you with science-based information vs. pseudo-science.

I can't wait to help you raise your puppy into the dog you've always wanted.
