Puppy Programs

Puppy Socialization

Puppy Socialization is designed for puppies 8 weeks to 16 weeks old.  It consists of a consultation and six one hour sessions.  Handler and dog will experience the proper methods of socializing their dog to:

This level will introduce you to the following:

  • Sounds & Noises
  • Indoor and Outdoor objects
  • Children
  • Dogs
  • Animals
  • Different surfaces
  • Everyday practical environmental situations

Proper socialization is the most important training a dog can receive as it has a limited, optimum window of time to be most effective and plays a major part in the dog throughout its life.  The lack of this component is one of the top reasons why so many dogs are in rescues/shelters.


Basic Puppy

Our Basic Puppy program is intended for puppies between  8 weeks, up to 6 months old.  This is a general guideline because every dog is an individual and matures differently.  This program teaches the owner all of the ins and outs of owning and raising a new puppy.  

We custom tailor to each individual puppy and owner based on what is discussed in the initial consultation as far as your expectations and future goals with your dog.  The program consists of 12 sessions (two sessions per week for 6 weeks).  We cannot emphasize enough the importance of a strong foundation as it will be the basis of all future training.

Puppy Board & Train Program

Our puppy board and train course is designed for dogs between 16 weeks and  6 months of age.  We go beyond traditional puppy classes in that we offer a lot more than just obedience training. We build a solid foundation starting with attention/focus and basic communication.  Through proper structure and maintenance we remove any undesirable behaviors and replace them with positive behaviors.


Your puppy will live 24/7 with us, as one of our dogs at our home.  This provides your dog with the structure of home environment, not obtainable in the kennel atmosphere.  Here he/she will learn to be part of the family and learn life long obedience as well as canine manners and etiquette.


This Puppy Training Program includes total immersion in a lifestyle of learning, structure, routine, socialization, walks, public outings and supervised puppy play.  Your puppy will develop a state of mind that makes it easy to transition into his permanent home where it is easy for you to continue his learning.  The program teaches a puppy that learning is fun and rewarding giving you the happy, well mannered balanced puppy of your dreams.

The program includes: 

  • Sit
  • Down
  • Bed
  • Leash Manners
  • Housebreaking 
  • Crate training
  • Self control, ie Food, doors, car, crate
  • Appropriate play with humans/dogs

Canine Manners:

All programs include a free consultation and 2 Private Transitional lessons at the end of the program where our staff will share how we trained your puppy and what to do (and not to do) to give you more insight into your puppy's training so you feel confident and can take your puppy anywhere.


During your puppy's stay with us we will send frequent photos and updates so you can see your dogs training progress.


After a few short weeks, your puppy comes back home trained, with manners, and is the polite family member you can take anywhere making your short training investment a lifetime payoff.
