Puppyology: In-home Puppy Training
Peachtree Dog Training proudly presents our Atlanta Puppy Training Program!
We routinely receive calls from exasperated puppy owners desperate for solutions to calm their rambunctious new puppy! Our Atlanta puppy training program can answer all of your questions, and more!
We’ll help you overcome the typical challenges of raising a puppy, such as excessive chewing, jumping and housebreaking, and build a strong foundation for a positive long-term relationship with your dog.
How does puppy training work?
Our puppy training programs are always in-home puppy lessons. Each lesson is a one-on-one session with our professional dog trainer, Christina Dore.
First, she will share general information about dog development and dog psychology to help you understand your puppy both now, and as he/she matures. She will help you tackle those typical puppy challenges and any unique challenges you’re facing, with all of her advice customized to your home environment. Finally, she will teach you how to build the right kind of relationship with your puppy now, so that as he grows older, you’ll be able to continue shaping his behavior in the right direction.
Our puppy training program is highly successful, but if you have any behavioral concerns as your puppy matures, we offer discounts toward our reward-based dog training programs as well. This discount is also available if you decide you want to take your puppy to the “next level” with our adult programs.
Our in-home Atlanta puppy training program will teach you:
- Easy housebreaking
- Preventing unwanted chewing or barking
- Preventing inappropriate greeting behaviors
- Clear and effective communication with your puppy
- Calming your puppy’s fear or nervousness
- Basic obedience skills
Should I take my puppy to a puppy class?
While puppy classes can be a lot of fun, you’ll receive a lot of generalized advice in a group setting. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it’s important to remember that not every puppy is the same (in terms of temperament) and that a puppy’s home environment is one of the largest influences on its developing behavior. This is why private, customized, home-based puppy training ensures the best results for your puppy.
Our in-home puppy training programs are suitable for puppies at least 7 weeks of age. All programs are fully customized and in-home.
If you live in the Atlanta area and you’re interested in any of our programs, please call us at 800.649.7297 or email us using our contact form.

Puppyology comes in two forms now — in-home AND group classes! If you’re not ready for in-home commitment-based puppy training, get a taste of our Puppyology group class series, where we will cover all your puppy basics in just three weekly classes in a group setting!
If you’re on the fence about puppy training, hop off now and enroll your puppy immediately! Early training will start your puppy on the right paw and prevent potential behavioral problems from forming as your puppy matures into an adult dog. Many puppy owners make the mistake to hold off on training until major problems arise and it becomes absolutely necessary. Instead of waiting for an explosion of serious behavioral issues and bad habits, nip it in the bud early with training and save yourself and your puppy the grief later when they are older (and probably bigger!).
Our Puppyology group class meets once a week for an hour, for 3 consecutive weeks. The topics that will be covered include:
- Potty training/crate training
- Separation anxiety prevention
- Basic commands: Sit, Down, Place, Stay, and Heel
- Leash manners
- Desensitization and socialization
- Puppy nipping and mouthing
- How to apply all these training skills at home and beyond the classroom
- And more!
While the topic of socialization will be discussed, this is a training class and NOT a socialization/playtime hour.
We will accept any puppy between 9 weeks old to 5 months old. All puppies must have their required shots, and puppies that are older than 4 months old are required to have their rabies shots. Any puppies past 5 months old that are needing some training guidance, look into our Practical Pet Protocol group classes or in-home dog training programs! These are also excellent options if you’re looking for more advanced obedience training for your puppy!
For safety and the progress for all students, any puppy that is showing signs of leash reactivity and/or aggression will not be admitted into the group class environment. Instead, we would encourage you to look into our in-home training for these more problematic behaviors.
Owners are asked to bring their puppies to class leashed on a collar and/or harness, a notebook and pen for note-taking, and your puppy’s favorite treats. Clickers are not necessary. Owners MUST pre-register and pre-pay before the first day of class in order to reserve their spot! We do have a limited number of spots for owners and puppies so be sure to register soon at the appropriate class and location that you desire!
