We recommend that all puppies are enrolled in an early training course to establish a foundation that your puppy will build upon over the months to come. Puppies have a small window of time during brain development when they are most impressionable. This is called the imprinting period. Puppies learn more during their first 16 weeks of life than they can learn in a life time. What they learn during this critical period will have a huge impact on their future personality, behavior and temperament.
Crate Training $500
The goal of the 2 Week Crate Training Program is to get your puppy comfortable in his or her crate before he or she makes the transition to their new home. By introducing your puppy to the crate prior to coming to your home, you are significantly reducing the amount of stress your puppy is exposed to in his or her new environment. Plus, we get to listen to the whining and barking the first week as they learn to love their crate, and you do not have to! Your puppy will begin spending just 2-3 hours a day in the crate. We will gradually increase the time that your puppy spends in the crate each day based on their individualized readiness. Usually, at the end of this 2 week crate training, your puppy is loving their quite nap time in their crate. This training makes bringing a puppy into your home a much less stressful time for you and the puppy. The price of this training program is $500 and takes place during weeks 6 and 7 before the puppy leaves our nursery to go to his/her forever home.
Puppy Boot Camp $1500
Puppies enrolled in this program will live in the home with a Double U Doodles’ trainer for 1 week after leaving the Double U Doodles’ nursery. This 1 week intensive Puppy Boot Camp follows “Baxter and Bellas” training techniques focusing on using good manners while walking on the leash, commands “sit”, “stay”, “wait”, crate training, and establishing house training foundation. Your puppy will also receive continued puppy enrichment activities (new toys, socialization, puzzles, games, etc) similar to those used in the nursery. The Puppy Boot Camp helps the transition to your home less stressful on the puppy, as well as their new humans. Due to the amount of one on one attention this training requires, available is very limited. Please inquire for details and availability.
