Puppy Training

Start Your Puppy Off in life with a strong foundation in obedience

Getting a new puppy can be both exciting and scary, especially if you have never raised a puppy before. For first-time owners, it’s important to note that puppies aren’t small furry humans – they are a completely different species with their own natural behaviors and desires.

All puppies must be consistently trained, or they may not grow up into that well-mannered, sweet, and loving dog that everyone dreams of having.

Teaching your puppy how to learn and how to engage are truly life lessons that will follow your puppy throughout its adult life. The key to success is maintaining motivation during your puppies’ education and keeping it fun. While working with your puppy environmental exposure is the next link in the learning process.

2-Week Puppy Boot Camp

Training young dogs is imperative to their long-term success. Before your puppy can be a well-balanced, well-mannered adult you must build a solid foundation of confidence, focus, and obedience. Our 2-Week Puppy Boot Camp provides all the necessary elements to get your pup started on the right track. 

What the Puppy Boot Camp Includes: 

This is a two-week board and train in which your puppy lives with his/her assigned trainer. We teach your puppy how to learn & how to engage, using positive reinforcement, prong collar if needed. We teach basic obedience positions (come, sit, place, down, loose leash walking) and manners (jumping, barking, nipping, begging). Throughout the training, your pup will have exposure to new environments, humans, dogs, and children. While living with the trainer, the structure will organically improve crate training and potty training.

WHAT PUPPY TRAINING IS NOT: Duration (stay) & distraction obedience. Adult-level obedience. Off-leash obedience.

Why Puppy Boot Camp? 

Obedience is every dog owner’s main concern. Your puppy must first learn HOW to learn. Each puppy will learn to focus with their trainer and build the habit of looking to a human for leadership and guidance. 

Exposure and Socialization with new people, places, sounds, smells, and dogs of all sizes and personality is also a key to success. If you would like your dog to remain obedient in a social setting with other dogs and strangers present, they must be desensitized to these scenarios. In addition, the ability to meet and play with other dogs in a polite manner starts in adolescence.

Crate training is the most important training you can do for your dog as a puppy. It aids in the success of potty training, helps to avoid the development of separation anxiety, and builds independence in teaching a calm state of mind while alone. You will never have to worry about your dog being nervous while boarding or when you’re not home if you teach this vital skill at a young age. Vacation here you come!
