The personality and temperament of your dog will depend on several factors. The most critical learning period is within 14 weeks of age. This is the time that puppies are most receptive to altering their perception of and reaction to the world around them. During our 10-day board and training program we will create a solid foundation of structure for your puppy that includes socialization, leash handling, basic commands, basic behavioral corrections, and potty training.
From the moment you bring your puppy home the benefits of training him or her are limitless. Proper training is vital in order for your puppy to be an active part of the family. And, can actually save his or her life. Our all-inclusive puppy-training program is designed as a foundation for your puppy’s future.
This program will provide the experiences and opportunities for your puppy to develop important and necessary interactive skills with other puppies, dogs and people in all sorts of environments. We work with your puppy to alleviate negative behaviors common in puppies. We provide basic and fundamental training such as how to heel on leash, place, recall, and valuable off-leash commands, as well as crate training with lots of playtime in between. This two-part program is for puppies five months of age and younger.
Part one includes a 10-day stay at our facility providing complete security, supervision, care and affection. During this time your puppy will receive 100% positive reinforcement. Your puppy will be introduced to basic commands. He or she will be socialized and exposed to various sights, sounds, surfaces and distractions that are found in real life settings. He or she will learn the proper introduction of crating and how to remain calm and stable.
After the completion of part one, your puppy will be returned home to you where you will continue the positive reinforcement and consistent process of commands, socialization, and crate training that your puppy learned in part one of our program.
Between the ages of six to eight months, your puppy will return to us for a two-week board and train program.
During this two-week period we will provide imprinting of and communication with the e-collar, while reinforcing with precise consistency the commands that were introduced in part one of this program. We will increase the level of socialization, and increase your puppy’s level of confidence when introduced and exposed to additional sights, sounds, surfaces and distractions found in various environments.
