Class launches May 6. So you’ve got a puppy! Congratulations!
So cute. So much work! OMG, what is this puppy doing!!???!
Even those of us who have raised a number of puppies tend to forget how much work and effort goes into raising a puppy. This is even harder for the first-time puppy owner. This course will give you an overview of the science behind puppy behavior, development, and the critical skills you’ll need to learn and you’ll need to teach your puppy to build a great life together.
$ 19.95 – $ 149.95
All courses offer three options of increasing price with increasing participation so you can choose the approach that best balances your budget with your need for ongoing assistance. See table below.
The audit version of the courses gives you unlimited access to all the course content. You can start when you want and take as long as you need to get through the course material or use it as reference material.
This is perfect for the person who has some experience with training dogs and just needs some additional information, focus, and structure.
Made for people who are pretty good at following course directions but want to have the ability to ask questions specific to the course content in an online discussion forum. You can get feedback from others who are progressing through the course and Randi Rossman and other behavior experts.
There are no time limits for participating in the community: take as long as you need.
For this plan, you can access the course content, the community PLUS attend up to two online webinars a week, and get feedback/coaching on one-minute video clips.
This is great for people who want to have guidance throughout the process.
This course is intended for:

It is likely complementary to most puppy classes. This course looks at raising your puppy from a behavioral perspective and likely provides a different view and additional knowledge from most puppy classes.
It depends. Some people do best with the structure and accountability of attending a class. Also, classes will provide you with some socialization opportunities. This course will cover everything — plus more — than most puppy classes, but because it is online, it does not provide puppy play or other socialization opportunities. We do, however, cover how to address those on your own.
Good for you for wanting to make sure this course will work for you! We have a FREE How Dogs Learn course which will give you a good idea of how Canine Behavior Science’s online courses work. You can also check out our YouTube Channel to view instructional style and approach to dog behavior.
If you’d like to see a “test” for the topic of this course specifically, contact us and we’ll get you access to one of the topics for your review.
