10 Day Puppy Board and Train

 

PRICE: $1,300

 

This unique board & train program is designed for puppies between 14-20 weeks of age. Raising a puppy is a difficult task, but it’s vitally important for dogs to receive adequate amounts of training and socialization during this critical period of their development. Our team has extensive experience raising and training puppies, including training puppies for potential service and therapy work. Puppies must be fully vaccinated prior to participating in this program. 

 

What the program includes:

  • Engagement and focus training
  • Confidence building
  • Crate training
  • House manners
  • Leash walking
  • Introduction to Coming When Called
  • Sit-Stay 
  • Down-Stay
  • Place command
  • Proper socialization
  • Body handling (cleaning ears, nail trimming, grooming, etc)
  • Addressing unwanted puppy behaviors (play biting, jumping, inappropriate chewing, barking, whining, etc.)
  • Introduction to long line work

 

What you will learn:

  • Proper communication with your puppy 
  • Proper use of rewards for good behavior
  • How to properly address common puppy behaviors
  • How to provide structure and guidance to your puppy
  • Lifestyle training habits to continue your puppy’s good behavior and obedience 
  • How to properly socialize your puppy

 

This program includes two private one-on-one training sessions. The first lesson is your go-home session, where I bring your puppy to your home and work with you and your family. The second lesson is typically scheduled within two weeks of the go-home session. Additional follow up lessons are always available if needed. Puppies that complete this program are able to come back for advanced off-leash obedience training and would be eligible for our shorter 2 week board and train program. 

 

Payment Policy: Once accepted for the board & train program, you will receive an invoice for 50% of the program cost. This acts as a deposit to hold your dog’s spot for training. A final invoice will be sent a week before your dog’s scheduled arrival for training.
