Olivia

Olivia has been training dogs professionally for 4 years with a positive reinforcement-based approach. She began her training journey with Sawyer, a pug puppy, and a certification to teach through a chain pet store. Since joining the Central Bark family in 2018, she has obtained multiple certifications through AKC including Canine Good Citizen and Star Puppy as well as rescued Darryl, an 8-month-old hound from Tennessee. At Central Bark we offer 6-week group classes of various difficulties (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced), 1-hour private lessons, and new puppy seminars. Olivia recommends group classes for most puppies because of the socialization/distraction benefits and private lessons are great for dogs that need individualized time or have a short list of commands to work on. Puppy seminars are brief group lessons focused on common puppy problems such as teething, potty training, and crate training. Regardless of the class type, Olivia aims to bring a comfortable, safe, and fun training experience for you and your dog!

I am not sure who loves Central Bark Oak Creek more, me or George. I cannot say enough great things about the staff. I could give them praise for days. They truly care about your fur baby. I highly recommend Central Bark Oak Creek!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you train a puppy?

Whether you’re crate training, leash walking, or potty training your pup, consistency is key. It’s crucial to establish a routine, practice positive reinforcement, supervise your puppy (especially when potty training), and avoid punishing your puppy when mistakes happen.

How long does it take to potty train a puppy?

When potty training your pup, consistency is key. It’s crucial to establish a routine, practice positive reinforcement, supervise your puppy (especially when potty training), and avoid punishing your puppy when mistakes happen. 

Potty training a puppy to eliminate outside can take just a few weeks or several months. But it will go more quickly if your training routine is consistent, and you’re consistent about taking your puppy outside every few hours. 

Central Bark® offers everything you need to help you train your puppy. We offer expert training and classes so you and your puppy can learn and bond together.

Is 5 months too old to train a puppy?

Not at all! It’s never too early or too late to begin building positive associations and using reward-based methods to teach your puppy new skills and behaviors.

Establish a training schedule now to help your puppy learn desired behaviors like walking nicely on a leash and basic cues like sit, stay, and loose-leash walking. Practicing these skills at home is critical, but it’s always a good idea to enlist the help of a professional to get a jump start teaching your puppy all the things you want them to know and set them up for success! Central Bark® offers everything you need to help you train your dog, including expert training and classes, so you and your puppy can learn and bond together.
