Your house should be puppy-proofed by now, so now it’s on to housebreaking that new little bundle of joy. Is it hard for you to take your pup out every time it wakes up? Do you work all day? Maybe we can help get your pup get off on the right paw … your pup can come and live with us for housebreaking, manners, socialization and basic manners puppy training before you even take it home!
