Puppy Head Start Obedience Training

Experience the joy of a Hightest trained dog!

Puppy Head Start is for pups four to five months of age. It is an introduction to the skills your dog will need to be ready for more advanced Obedience training. We have found that people often don't know what to emphasize in their early training and many puppies are poorly started. For the non-hunter, the focus of training is obedience and the development of an enjoyable family companion.

At Hightest, we strive to provide a high quality, positive learning

experience for dogs and their owners.


Head Start Obedience puppies are started on basic obedience commands - Sit, Down, Loose Leash Walking, Place, and Off. 


We promise to care for your dog as if it were our own!


At the end of your dog's two week stay, we will schedule a one-on-one training session for you to work with your dog and the trainer. This session is to instruct you on how to handle your dog and maintain their progress.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will training change my dog's personality? 

Training changes your dog's behavior but not their personality. Training helps organize your dog's thought processes so that he/she can be more self-controlled and respond to commands.


Will training correct my dog's undesirable habits such as digging and destructive chewing?

Training teaches the dog to respond to commands when you are present. It does not teach the dog to behave in a certain manner when you are absent. Digging and chewing are best addressed by confining your dog in a crate or dog run when you are unable to supervise them.
