Are you experiencing a reactive dog?
We understand it can be difficult to admit a pup may be reactive, but it’s important to address and make sure your dog gets put in the best place to succeed. Reactive behavior can look like barking, lunging, over-excitement, fear and/or aggression. If you’ve experienced any of these, our Behavior Modification Program is setup to support you and your pup.
For All Ages and Stages
Our group sessions are a great way for your puppy to learn important life skills such as obedience, manners, proper social etiquette and problem-solving in a fun and positive environment. Join us for a group training session and see how much your pup can learn while having a great time with other dogs and owners.

16 - 20 weeks
Puppies enter adolescence anywhere between 6 and 12 months of age and remain in this phase through 18 to 24 months. During this time dogs experience an increased desire to explore their environment and the people within it, powered by surges of hormonal changes and continued brain development.
Adolescent dogs exhibit behavioral tendencies similar to that of pre-teen children. We may see this as an act of rebellion as they begin to refuse obedience cues, elevating our need for household management and consistent training. Remaining the calm, benevolent leaders that you are, you will learn through this course how to recollect your adolescent puppy, regain their focus and preserve successful progression in your lifelong journey together.
In the grand scheme, adolescence doesn’t last long, although it may feel as if time moves a little slower. Truly, with proper socialization, management and training, adolescence spans from the time your sweet and innocent puppy starts pushing the boundaries and ends as they settle into their role, as the well-adjusted family dog.
Age: 8 weeks - 4/6 months
Prerequisite: A large variety of factors come into play when organizing these groupings. Characteristics which make a BOOST! participant eligible and best suited for either the puppy or adult program are as follows: age, size, breed, temperament, social development, play style and the puppy’s individual needs.
Raising a puppy is a full-time job! BOOST! for Puppies is here to make that job a breeze. Drop your puppy off at Blue Fawn for a full day of socialization, training and activity with an experienced, qualified professional and get ahead of the puppy raising challenges.

What Your Puppy Will Be Up To
Throughout the day your puppy will experience a structured training environment designed to promote good behavior. Your puppy will have the opportunity to socialize, exercise and learn all of the important life skills necessary to confidently navigate the world around them.
Each puppy will have an individually designed training plan to conquer the areas most in need while fulfilling their unique biological needs. Puppy parents will have access to the online Portal filled with useful training handouts, videos, resources and report cards.
We’ll begin the baby basics of Sit, Down, Stand. Stay, Wait (for food, at doorways), Leave it, Get it, Drop it, Loose Leash Walking, Come When Called, Place and Calm on Cue.
Puppy Specific Behaviors:
We will focus on house training/potty training, crate training and curbing the common puppy challenges like biting, nipping, chewing, barking, jumping and more.
Furthermore, your puppies will be gently exposed to common daily living activities (vacuuming and sweeping to name just two) as well as different sights, sounds, smells, surfaces and experiences to develop their confidence and their understanding of the world around them.
Combine BOOST! for Puppies with bi-weekly AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Classes to learn how to effectively communicate, take the lead in training, and strengthen the bond you’re developing with your new canine companion.
