Preparing for your new puppy

We can help you prepare for your new puppy

Thinking of getting a puppy? 

Not sure which breed is right for your family? 

Worried about choosing a poor breeder or even being fooled into buying from a puppy farm? 

Not sure how to prepare for your arrival or what you'll need in place for that all important first night and week in your home?

Just want to get it right from the start?

Don't worry - we are here to help you!

A video session with Karen.  This could be right at the start of your journey to finding a pup to look at choosing the right breed, what to look out for in a breeder, and how to identify things that should ring alarm bells.  

Maybe you've chosen a breeder and need some help with choosing the right pup? Or perhaps you'd like some support to work with the breeder to get pup ready to come home with you? 

Or maybe just a little bit of help in getting ready for that all important first night and week at home with you - what to buy, how to set things up in the home, introducing the "den, settling pup in, housetraining  and all other "new puppy" preparations. 

Karen can help with all of these things!

What people are saying about us...

I’d recommend Blue Dog Canine Services to anyone needing help or advice with their dogs. Karen has been so supportive through our online sessions, a great source of advice and knowledge particularly for me as a first time dog owner with a very lively little pup! Bo and I have come a long way and we’ve both learned a lot with Karen’s help.
