Pupstart Family Dog Training


Pupstart wants to come to you in person but must pause again for safety! Now offering phone and Zoom consults.

Due to the pandemic, Pupstart suspended in-home visits in the Des Moines, Iowa, service area mid-March. I resumed on July 1st, but as of July 10th, unfortunately, I must pause again accepting new clients due to the spike of COVID-19 cases in Polk County and my backlog of clients since March.

Phone and Zoom consults remain available no matter where you live, billed at $40-$60/half-hour. You'd be surprised how much work we can get done during a Zoom consult! The process is that we'll set up an appointment, and I'll send you some history forms to complete and return. Then we'll meet virtually. I will invoice you from Square after our meeting, and you can pay with your credit card. I know some situations require eyes-on, and I will return to that as soon as we have a significant drop in cases and hospitalizations.

The quickest way to reach me is via this contact form. Please tell me about your dog and let me know what kind of help you need. Also, feel free to call 515-277-8779 and leave a message.
