Raising a puppy can be a super joyful amazing awesome experience. It can also be really, REALLY frustrating. Does any of this sound familiar?

  • You haven’t brought your new puppy home yet but you’re already overwhelmed by everything involved 
  • This is the first puppy you’ve raised on your own, and you want to make sure you get it right 
  • You already have a puppy who is driving you crazy, and you just want the biting and the chewing and the whining to STOP 
  • You’re having a hard time relaxing and enjoying your puppy because you’re worried you’re going to “screw him up” 
  • You’re secretly wondering if adopting your puppy was a big mistake  

At 3LostDogs.com, I’ve been helping people in situations like these for years. The “new puppy blues” has become my specialty. I wanted to make something that would help people make it through the blues and actually enjoy life with their puppies. That’s why Puppy Survival School was born.

Training designed for real life, developed in real life, filmed in real life

In October 2016, I adopted River, a four-month-old Belgian malinois, from a shelter (what was a purebred malinois doing in a shelter? No clue! But there was a whole litter of them! It’s a MYSTERY).  

Starting on day one, I filmed nearly everything I did with River. House training, obedience training, problem solving, socializing, playing, cuddling, adventuring, etc.  

A few months later, I decided that River needed a friend, so I went back to the shelter and adopted Hazel, a three-month-old lab/pit bull mix.  

I filmed everything I did with her, too.  

All this footage became the Puppy Survival School.

As real-life as it gets

This is no fancy studio production. These videos were recorded in my messy house, with my noisy housemates, with a resident cat who liked to wander into the shot.  

You’ll see these puppies learning, making progress, and growing. I’ll even point out my mistakes.  

You won’t have to use your imagination to figure out how all these lessons fit into real life – you’ll get to watch them happen in real life.

The "What Was I Thinking?!" mini-course

The What Was I Thinking phase (WTFWIT, for short) is part of the new-puppy-adjustment period that happens to many people. It’s the part where everything is terrible, and you think you made a huge mistake by adopting this puppy. 

I'll talk about my experience with this phase, and teach you how to survive it.

5 Signs You’re Experiencing a Case of WTFWIT  

  • I’m a prisoner in my own home 
  • I’m pretty sure I adopted the worst dog in the world 
  • My old dog was so much better 
  • I resent this dog and I feel guilty for resenting the dog 
  • I had dogs growing up and/or I did a ton of research, but I was not prepared for THIS 

If you can relate to these statements, you’re smack in the middle of the WTFWIT phase. Puppy Survival School can help with that.

Bonus: the community

We have forums where you can meet other people dealing with the same puppy challenges as you, commiserate about the WTFWIT phase, share your progress, and swap dog stories. I'll be hanging out there a lot during grand-opening month. Come say hi!
