Private Board and Train
For puppies 8 weeks – 20 weeks of age
Give your puppy the most thorough head start possible! Your puppy will stay in our private home and live with our Certified Professional Dog Trainer. It’s the fastest, most effective path to having a well trained canine companion. Our focus is on setting you and your new puppy up for a lifetime of success through early training and comprehensive prevention programs that use food, toys, play and praise to motivate your puppy to learn how to behave. Do owners still need to do some training? Yes! Our trainer will work one-on-one with you and your new puppy to show you how to maintain the training, but we do the heavy lifting and get the behaviors up and running for you.
Board & Train 4 week Puppy Primer includes:
House Training basics sets your puppy up with a solid house training foundation
Crate Training teaches your puppy to love his or her crate
Chew Training establishes good chew habits so puppy learns to chew his or her own toys, rather than your ‘stuff’
Alone Training so your puppy will be comfortable and confident being left alone
Basic Obedience Skills for polite behavior around your home including name recognition, sit, sit for greetings, down, go to place, wait, stay, leave it, drop it, loose leash walking and come when called
Puppies may begin this program between 8 weeks and 20 weeks of age. Proof of up-to-date vaccinations is required and puppies must be in good health. Puppies with any signs of illness, including, but not limited to, diarrhea, vomiting, discharge from eyes or nose, will not be allowed to attend until symptom-free and cleared by a veterinarian.
Socialization: Young puppies are especially primed to learn new things and form good habits. In fact, important windows of opportunity begin closing as early as 12 weeks of age, so it’s especially important to provide loads of positive socialization experiences during this critical period of development.
