NET's Puppy Training

offers compassionate quality care for Hawaii’s puppy families. I strongly believe that providing an abundance of early training opportunities for my clients will allow them to minimize and manage the most common behavioral problems during the imprinting months (before 24 weeks.) such as:


  1. house soiling
  2. excessive barking (often stemming from separation anxiety)
  3. biting
  4. chewing
  5. prevention of separation anxiety

Prior to the puppy coming home from the breeder I offer:

  1. To meet with my clients to set up the best possible puppy room and pen set up so that establishing good training habits can begin right away.
  2. Daily or weekly private in-home training sessions with the puppy and your family.
  3. Pick-up and drop-off services for continued training outside of the home once your puppy has been vaccinated

Puppies go through developmental stages and windows of optimum learning opportunities. These stages happen very early in a pup’s life. That is why I try very hard to begin basic training with families as early 8 to 12 weeks of age. The science of dog behavior has proven that early training will optimize and influence your pup’s overall development.

Because NET's Puppy Training takes place individually and privately, you will be making the most of your time and your puppy’s learning potential. By working at home, there are no group training restrictions usually imposed by monthly vaccination and veterinarian's scheduling. And by starting early and safely with me, you are given the tools, knowledge, and an ongoing helping hand.

As your puppy grows into young adulthood (from 6 months to a 1 year.)... your puppy and your training relationship will change. Usually, some type of continuing education will be required and I would love to help you. I am a reward-based trainer. And it is highly advisable to stick with one type of training method as your puppy grows into adulthood (regardless of the trainer.) The method is key- and will prevent confusion and possible behavioral setbacks.

At NET's Puppy Training I understand the importance of creating a warm, inviting, and playful setting for your puppy in its first learning environment, your home. This allows them to focus on learning the basics of living with their human family and ensures that learning becomes a positive experience for the whole family.
