Pittsburgh Puppy Training Program

Pivotal Dog Training believes that puppy training is imperative and gives you and your puppy the opportunity to succeed and create a strong bond together. Our in-depth and in-home puppy training gives you the knowledge and tools to create a consistent and balanced lifestyle for your puppy, where he/she can learn about boundaries and good habits.

A dog’s critical period of development is between 8 and 16 weeks of age, which is why it is crucial to introduce certain experiences during that time frame. Starting early allows your puppy to learn the appropriate behaviors, and therefore can prevent from any serious problems from developing as they mature in age. Our Pittsburgh puppy training works to teach the fundamentals to your puppy, while also creating a clear channel of communication between you and your puppy.

Our puppy training program covers the following:

  • Housebreaking
  • Basic Commands and Manners
  • Socialization and Desensitization
  • Separation Anxiety Prevention
  • Leash Behavior
  • Playful Puppy Nipping
  • Introducing and Building Impulse Control
  • And more!

Why start training your puppy when they are young?

Over the years of professional dog training, our dog trainers have worked with many dogs dealing with mild and severe behavioral issues. Often times, these cases have lacked structure and training in their earlier puppy years. Pivotal Dog Training believes that if solid and consistent puppy training is instilled, then the adult years of a dog will be a breeze with little to no problematic behaviors!

Puppies are a clean slate that need some type of guidance and direction as they grow. Let us help you communicate with your puppy and get them started on the right paw! We use positive reinforcement and reward-based techniques that set you and your puppy up for success and a relationship based on love, respect, and trust.
