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. Each day between 8 and 12 weeks is an opportunity that you can not get back. Our 4 week training program is available for puppies that are 8-12 weeks old.
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 having your puppy crate trained 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 includes the puppies 9 week vaccine at no additional charge. If you enroll your puppy in this program, he/she will not go home on the original go home date. Rather, your puppy will stay with us for 2 additional weeks.
Leash/Obedience Training $500
This program will extend your puppy’s total training time to 4 weeks past the original go home date. The puppies enrolled in this program will learn to use good manners while walking on the leash, sit on command, and other commands like stay, shake, etc. depending on his or her individualized progress. This will also make the puppy’s transition to your home less stressful on him/her as well as their new owners. This is available to a VERY limited number of puppies and is first come, first serve.
