We offer a started puppy program for those people who want a puppy but want a little more than just a cute ball of fluff to take home. Started puppies/dogs will be proficient at walking on a leash, and will understand and obey commands such as Sit, Come, Heel, Down, and Leave it. Our started puppy training begins at 8 weeks of age and goes to up to 6 months of age. Started puppies will also be crate trained and schooled not to jump on people. We do our best to socialize the puppies with our children, strangers (to them), loud noises, etc. Puppies are crate trained and will be 95% house broken when they go home. (We can't say 100 % because you have to learn their signals, and they have to learn your schedules, but it is generally a quick transition). We encourage our started puppy families to come out and visit with the puppy (no training will be done with clients before 18 weeks) as much as our schedule allows. Please call or email with more questions.
We use English Slip Leads and recommend them to all our clients. Please do not use the lead on a puppy less than 16 weeks of age.
