PRIOR TO PICKING UP YOUR PUPPY!
To best prepare and achieve your desired results, our online puppy school was designed for you to begin prior to picking up your pup. In fact, the first two units (see below) focus on introducing you to successful animal ownership and what to do to properly prepare!
Our INTRODUCTION Unit teaches new pet parents, even before their canine companion arrives home, the basics of positive reinforcement dog training and while it's mostly reading, the purpose is to establish a base-level understanding of the training tips, tricks, tools and techniques that will lead to success!
Our PREPARATION Unit outlines how to set up your house for optimal outcomes and helps you arrange the other important things necessary to get started in the right direction, including, but certainly not limited to; shopping lists, curriculum charts & checklists, as well as the very popular SURVIVAL GUIDE - what you need to know right now when everything is happening quickly and survival is key!

I cannot say enough good about this program! I am a first time dog owner and had no idea where to begin. This program gave me the direction I needed. We have used the program for four months and our puppy is now six months old. I am frequently getting compliments from family, friends, pet care professionals, and strangers about how well behaved our dog is for being a puppy. ~A.Fadel
I highly recommend this training program! I love the practical tips and the ‘learn at your pace’ format. The combination of written information and videos is really nice. I also had a specific problem with my puppy with the training and contacted Amy. She was quick to respond with a thorough, personalized response. Love it! ~Angela
I highly recommend Baxter & Bella to every dog owner! I am a first time dog owner, but the resources are excellent for any dog owner at any age. When we got our Cavapoo puppy we decided to enroll at the local pet store for training classes. The classes were good, but Baxter & Bella has been so much better!! The curriculum is both more in-depth and broad. We also considered hiring a personal dog trainer, but Baxter & Bella is much more affordable, long-term, and based on my schedule. I love the videos because I can watch them over again by myself or with my children. You can’t do that at the pet store. The LIVE! Office hours were amazing! I asked all my individualized questions and received answers and encouragement I needed, including links to her videos. The range of services available is excellent, for times when I want to go in-depth or when I need a quick answer using the Search feature. I feel 100% supported in training my puppy now and for years to come. I do not think I could receive better service anywhere else. Thank you! ~Melanie
