Spot On Veterinary Hospital & Hotel Opens Puppy Training Academy

In light of the rapid increase in new puppies due to the pandemic, Spot On Veterinary Hospital & Hotel in Stamford is now offering a Puppy Training Academy.

Sales and adoptions of new puppies during the pandemic have hit an all time high. As people are home more and feeling disconnected from others, more and more are adding four legged family members to their pack.

Because of social distancing requirements, many of these puppies have not had the opportunity for training or socialization.

In Spot On’s program, over the course of two weeks, three days per week, a limited number of puppies will work with a dedicated staff trainer from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on basic commands, socialization, and obedience training.

Go from saying “No, No, No!” to “Good Puppy!”

Families are able to watch the training sessions on our live webcams and to debrief with the trainer at the end of the day to ensure the best communication and teamwork.

For older dogs, or those wishing for more individual attention, Spot On is also offering packages or individual sessions of one-on-one training.

Our enthusiastic and energetic staff trainer, Janet Willhite has been training animals for more than 30 years and uses a training method of positive reinforcement and balanced training. Her passion is being able to enhance the relationship between animals and their owners through teamwork and she brings her enthusiasm and infectious positivity to Spot On to offer the most comprehensive training experience available.

The owner of Spot On, Dr. Philip Putter DVM said in a release he was thrilled about the new training program.

“Investing time now to create positive behaviors and skills early in your puppy’s life will help set up a lifetime of health, harmony & happiness for all of these new puppies & their families,” Dr. Putter said. “We are thrilled to be able to add training and the Puppy Academy to our repertoire of the highest quality services for all animals offered at Spot On.”
