3 WEEK IMPRINTING PROGRAM

Here are 2 examples of what can be accomplished in a 3 Week Imprint Program.  Guinness (left) and Joey (right) are both trained Goldendoodle puppies who mastered everything I could of expected from them.  Such smart puppies to have learned so much in such a short time.  My training produces consistent results.  Both puppies are just 10.5 weeks old when performing for these videos.

4-6 WEEK IMPRINTING PROGRAM

Here are 2 examples of what can be accomplished in a 4-6 Week Imprint Program.  Pooka (left) and Bhalu (right) are also extremely smart trained Goldendoodle puppies who learned all of the above behaviors, and further acquired a good understanding of a basic sit and down stay, and leave it.  More training included loose leash walking with focus and sits and the most important of all, the come command.

 Welcome To

​My Puppy Imprint Training Service!

Confident Canines is a reward based dog training company that does not endorse any tools or techniques that could potentially harm a dog's personality or temperament. My passion is puppies and preventing behavior problems through proper training and socialization. Lynda O'Neill CTB.ccs, IPDTA-CDT has earned certification as a Dog Trainer / Behavior Therapist and has owned and operated Confident Canines in Ontario, Canada since 2003.

Proper socialization and safe exposure requires immediate attention during a puppy's first few months of life.   Just like children, puppies go through critical developmental stages.  Special concern needs to be taken during the puppies first Fear Imprint Period between 8-11 weeks of age.  If something scares the puppy during this time it can be imprinted for life.

The key to creating a socially self-confident, well mannered puppy, is to spend an enormous amount of time, safely exposing your puppy to as much as possible during the imprinting period.   At Confident Canines, we spend hours each and every day training and socializing your puppy.  We go on daily walks and take trips in the car to various places for socialization and exposure opportunities.  The puppies who have been with us will tell you, the puppy play dates are the most fun of all!

Confident Canines Puppy Training - Puppy Imprinting Program - Trained Puppy Puppy Imprint Training Service

Confident Canines Puppy Training Service brings to you an elite starter program for puppies 8-12 weeks of age.  You choose your puppy, enroll in my Puppy Imprinting Program and I will do the training for you.   Along with teaching obedience skills and manners, I use every opportunity to safely socialization your puppy to as many people, places and things as possible during this sensitive yet critical period of development.   (See Featured Video of Roxy).  


The most difficult adjustment period when getting a new puppy, is implementing a successful house training and crate training program and ensuring the puppy is consistently learning good manners.  With puppies, this task can take weeks of hard work, commitment and perseverance to achieve.   With my Puppy Imprint Training Service, there will be no need to worry whether or not you are doing it right.   Having taught puppy classes since 2003, I have coached over a thousand families, with all breeds of puppies.   Puppies are my specialty!


THE RESULTS!  With my board and train program, you take home a well socialized, well mannered, pre-trained puppy who understands and appreciates household rules and boundaries.  For continued success at home, you will be supplied with manuals, videos and will receive lifetime phone and email support to ensure the transition to your home continues as smoothly as possible.  

CUSTOMIZED PROGRAMS

It is your program so I can train what ever skills you wish, with a reasonable amount of time. Lulu (left) learned more tricks instead of obedience commands.  This is what her family wanted.   Each puppy is unique and an individual, so I like to watch for behaviors that come naturally and then provide an outlet for them to express it.  As you will see in Daisy's video (right) she wants to be a soccer star!
