Polite Puppy Training

8 Weeks to 24 Weeks – Duration: 6 Modules

In-Home Puppy Training!

This program will show you how to get control over your puppy so that they are not running your life. Sure they are cute, but they grow up quickly and they can either grow into the perfect family dog, or a holy terror. 

The polite puppy program does not focus on puppy socialization, it focuses on solving behavioural issues and preventing new ones from popping up. 

Our training is one-on-one, with no long waiting list, start right away when its convenient for you.

We're Different (Our Moms Agrees)

1: We Focus On Current Issues
2: We Help Avoid Future Issues
3: Start Right Away
4: Book Your Sessions When It's Convenient For You

I'm Justin Crawford

One of two types of people call me for puppy training. 

1: People who are completely fed up with their puppies bad behavior (usually excessive puppy biting)

2: People who want to have an incredibly well trained adult dog.

If you fit into one of these categories, I can help you turn your little devil into a saint, or turn your mouldable little cutie into a bad-ass adult dog. I'll teach you how to understand why your puppy behaves the way that they do, and help you address their issues in your own home.  

The Road To A Well Adjusted Adult Dog Is Paved With Mango Dogs 

Getting to puppy group classes is difficult. You have to wait several months to get into a class, and it has to jive with your work schedule. Puppy classes usually limit how many humans can come, but not with our training! Bring the whole family. We'll book you in when you have time, and you can start right away. 

We use a balanced training philosophy in our training. This means we use food, toys, praise, treats to encourage good behaviours, and puppy sized corrections for bad behaviours. The food and fun keeps your puppy engaged and enthusiastic, and the corrections keep your puppy accountable and makes their behaviour more reliable. 

Puppies benefit hugely from the laser focused approach in private lessons. You'll have plenty of time to ask questions, and get the one-on-one support that you desire.

Our polite puppy program covers our puppy foundation training, as well as aiding you in overcoming a broad range of issues that you may already be experiencing.

what our Clients are saying


Our 8 week old Labrador Retriever, Reese, was a handful. She was a biter. It was cute at first, but as the weeks went by it became more excessive. As she became bigger, it wasn’t so cute anymore. She was breaking the skin, and ripping clothing. Reese also ate very fast, and then grabbed her food dish in her mouth and guarded it.

I signed Reese up for Polite Puppy Obedience Training with Justin. I will be honest, the price was way more than other trainers but I want anyone reading this review to know it is so worth it!

After just one session with Justin, we could see a huge improvement in Reese. The excessive biting was no more. Justin is caring, and knowledgeable. The flexibility of booking one-on-one sessions is great. He went above and beyond to address all our questions/issues with Reese.  

He truly has changed our approach, which has led to a smart, well-behaved 4.5 month old puppy. I encourage anyone who might be hesitant, to make the investment. You won’t regret it - we certainly don’t!

Izzy pulled at the leash, jumped on people/dogs/counters, and we also wanted a dog we could walk confidently off leash around other dogs.

We loved that we could involve the whole family in the training. After the first session we noticed a huge improvement in Izzy’s behaviour. We have now finished our in-home sessions and have a lovely, well-behaved family dog! We enjoyed our training a great deal. Justin adapted to our specific needs and were patient, helpful and very knowledgeable. Thanks Mango Dogs. :)
