Puppy Pre-school by Carey Bolduc

Puppy pre-schools are specifically designed for Puppies 8 to 16 weeks old. This is a prime socialization period for dogs. This makes it the perfect time for introducing your puppy to the big wide human dominated world it is going to live in. It is also a good time to learning about other dogs and all their various shapes and sizes. For some dogs, missing this prime socialization period can lead to a life time of fear and possibly aggression. Learning and practicing obedience around other dogs is essential for a confident city dog.

ABOUT CAREY 5* YELP REVIEW

You think you love puppies? Meet Carey Bolduc. She’s trained more than 350 puppies over the last year. While she’s enjoyed every minute of it, Carey’s expertise goes way beyond teaching basics to huggable, loveable fur babies. She has the dedication and proven methods to help correct deeply ingrained behavioural issues in dogs of all ages. For proof, you needn’t look any further than Carey’s beloved Luna.

Deemed “untrainable” by other professional trainers, Luna had been surrendered by three different owners before Carey adopted her. The reason? Luna was a reactive non-stop barker, riddled with anxiety. But Carey saw Luna’s potential and made it her mission to unlock it. By taking a holistic approach that includes a customized exercise, training & nutritional routine, Carey was able to transform Luna into a loyal loving companion.

Previous to Luna, Carey had already established herself in the canine-loving community as a highly effective balanced trainer. Using a combination of corrective and positive training, Carey is a firm believer in the power of clear consistent communication – both verbally and through body language. Always, nurturing, always patient, Carey was born to work with animals

In fact, Carey can’t remember ever not caring for animals. One of her earliest childhood memories is of walking her neighbour’s dog, which was left alone all day. To this day, that genuine love for dogs shines through in everything she does. So you can take comfort in knowing that when you take your dog to see Carey, your four-legged best friend is in safe hands. Just ask Luna!

What puppy owners have to say...

Carey is an amazing instructor and pet trainer. We have been attending her classes since Sesame was 10 weeks old. Carey is always very patient and encouraging in teaching us how to communicate with our puppies so it is without a doubt that we entrusted her to pet sit our huskymix princess when we went on a 2 week long vacation. By that time Sesame was a 7 month old puppy/adolescent who can be a handful at times.  Carey was very professional and thorough in letting us know what Sesame's day will consist of and asking us what issues we would like her to work on. We got fun daily updates on Sesame while we were away and when we returned we couldn't believe what a great improvement she has made on our pup! Sesame no longer walks like a wild child, has great manners and is more confident now. We definitely recommend her services! Thank you Carey!

I had the good fortune of taking my puppy (Enzo) to Carey for puppy kindergarten. He was fearful and had never played with any other puppies. I found Carey's class to be informative and fun. Carey is extremely knowledgeable, and patient. Time was well spent in every class. She would demonstrate techniques, adapt them to different dogs and we would practice. She is very approachable, and has a great sense of humour. By the end of class Enzo was playing with the other dogs, and I had learned tools for coping with a puppy. I guess the best recommendation for Carey was that our entire class signed up together to continue on with the next level.
