Home Visit / Private Training


Very popular and totally productive, Thunder Puppy comes to you!  Many people  are well along the way to achieving their goals with their canine best  buddies, but may still need instruction in a few areas in the home  environment or help with tweaking a few problem behaviors.  An at home   ‘crash course’ in Dog Psychology,  Ann and TPU will visit your  environment and implement a specific remedy based on the trouble you may  be experiencing. All behaviors are fair game- fence fighting, excessive  barking, neighborhood walks, counter surfing, door dashing, and more.    Or, if you and your family would  just  like few pointers,  a check up  or tune up- this is the service you are looking for!
                   Two hour sessions by appointment.


Stay-N-Train with TPU's Exclusive Pack Therapy

Easily  the best and fastest track to having the dog that you want, no other  dog training or behavior modification program offers or delivers the  services and results that Thunder Puppy University’s  Stay and Train!   achieves.

Based and structured in pure Dog Psychology, your K9  buddy is put directly into the Formula of Dog Training. Organized daily  walks in a mountain setting, individually worked with to meet each dog’s  needs, and socialized in group with the unique and balanced Thunder  Puppy Pack, your dog will return to you improved to such a degree that  you may not even recognize him through his behavior!
This curriculum  is highly effective when a problem arises in the canine/human  relationship, and addresses everything from dominance to dog aggression,  or simply sets dog and owner up- without frustration- for an immediate,  more relaxed way of life- teaching basics and more.
Your pets stay  with The Pack at our beautiful "campus" just 15 minutes up Coal Creek  Canyon.  The property was bought soley for the dogs and fenced and  modified for their personal comfort and safety.  There hasn't been a dog  who has hated it yet!  The campus doubles as the trainer’s personal  home to insure that they keep in touch with not only the consistency of  training, but the domestic environment as well. Someone is almost always  on the property attending to their needs and they are never locked in a  building overnight with no one around. 

Highly valuable, proven  extremely successful, this program is typically 3 weeks in length. Once Fido or  Fifi has been accepted into the program, only your dog’s best interest  is kept at heart. You will never be told that your dog “flunked out” or  is not trainable- even if it takes a little extra time.

Includes  one entrance interview and a two hour exit instruction where the family  is empowered with the knowledge necessary to retain and continue with  the education the dog has received.
