Puppy Boot Camp
Our puppy school is great for any puppies over twelve weeks and up to six months. The ideal age to start puppy training is right when it comes home. There are many benefits to early training and socialization. Typically between two months and four months, most dogs naturally want to be with their new family or person. We can use this as a tool to help train behaviors such as the come command and engagement.
In this stage of life it is extremely important to provide puppies with experiences to create a well-rounded adult dog. All of our puppy training is done with food and positive reinforcement. We use motivational techniques to create a very focused and willing puppy that wants to please. Your puppy will gain a foundation in basic skills such as sit, down, come when called, focus, crate games and other fun activities to keep their minds alert. We also work on normal puppy behaviors such as house training and crate training and correcting behaviors such as jumping on people, biting, chewing, barking and other behaviors that are easiest to stop in this stage in life.
Puppy to Adult Dream Dog Course - $3,975
In this camp we take your puppy at around twelve weeks of age for ten days. We socialize, build confidence, work on bad puppy behaviors, crate train, potty train and build a foundation in obedience. Then they go back home until they are six months old. At six months old, they come back for an additional two weeks and we continue where they left off. By the end of this course you will have complete on and off leash control. We teach heeling, sit, down, stay, come and goto bed. Along with proper etiquette for meeting new people, ignoring dogs in public, confidence building, riding in cars and much more.
