Puppyhood, the time to focus on socialization, how to teach them to be the dog we want them to be, routine, structure and how to fit into our homes! Our main focus isn't obedience commands-we save that for the obedience programs. Our main focus in puppyhood is to teach you how to interact and bond with your new pup! You don't have to do it alone!
Training our dogs takes time! We can build an amazing foundation, but we do have to account for the time it takes for these skills to become habits and to get through the changes of puppyhood to teenager to adult and all the ups and downs that are NORMAL, but frustrating. We give you an amazing foundation and support your throughout your dogs life! That's right-- LIFETIME training support!
