About Puppy Training

Program Cost – $1900

Our puppy programs will lay the foundation of basic obedience training. In this program, your puppy will learn the basic commands of heel, sit, down, and place. We will start training at our facility and quickly progress to a public environment. We want to train the puppy in a public setting as much as we can so we can properly expose and socialize your puppy to all types of environments.

From the time you hand off your puppy to our trainer, we will start to develop a working relationship with your puppy.  We will immediately begin to establish appropriate boundaries for successful learning.  With young puppies, we will use positive reinforcement by way of food and toys to motivate your puppy to learn.  At this young age, fun and food are the foundation of our puppy training.

We offer various options for puppy training to help set you and your puppy up for success from the start! We will provide a schedule that allows for successful housebreaking and crate training. We will teach your puppy basic obedience and create a foundation of learning that can be built upon as they grow for a lifetime of success. 

Puppy Training Benefits


Find Answers to Our Most Frequently Asked Questions.

It is important for you to start training with you puppy as early as possible. Young puppies are a blank slate.  They are constantly absorbing information from the environment around them. If you provide them with structure and knowledge at a young age, they will develop into well mannered canine members of your family.

All puppies deserve the best we can provide them at a young age.  That includes balanced training and appropriate socialization from a young age.  

Our puppy training will help alleviate jumping, biting, barking, anxiety and security that could lead to aggression. We also help you teach your dog how to learn so that she will continue to be a receptive student into adulthood.

Puppy training is NOT adult dog obedience training. It is impossible to make a 3-month-old puppy act like a 3-year-old dog. Puppy training is step one in your dog’s education. Much like primary school is not the same as college. When a puppy comes home the trainer will work with you to ensure that you have all the information and training necessary to continue working with your puppy daily to reinforce with consistency the foundational training your puppy received.
