Anticipated Outcomes of Our Puppy Training Program

  • Excursions – Our boot camp puppies embark on field trips to familiarize them with common elements of daily life. This includes encounters with other dogs, various sounds, people, children, different surfaces, and more. Using their food drive and training, we work on bolstering their confidence in novel situations.


  • Confidence Development – Daily, we engage in confidence-boosting exercises using our obstacle course. You will receive visual updates, capturing your puppy navigating the course. The obstacle course introduces puppies to diverse surfaces, A-frame style obstacles, bridges, teeter-totters, agility tunnels, and similar challenges.

  • Physical and Mental Stimulation – Each day, we ensure your puppy receives a balance of physical and mental exercises. This dual approach is vital for the overall well-being of both puppies and adult dogs, promoting happiness through a well-exercised body and mind.


  • Etiquette Training – We initiate etiquette training for puppies, emphasizing proper behavior when meeting both people and other dogs. Instilling good manners is a fundamental aspect of our training.

Puppy course - $2400

During training, we will address the following:

  • Teaching "sit" and "down" using food

  • Introducing the "come" command using food

  • Familiarizing them with their name

  • Engaging in crate games and promoting calmness in the crate

  • Initiating potty training

  • Addressing and curbing unwanted puppy behaviors

  • Enhancing focus and engagement

  • Facilitating proper socialization

  • Confidence Building

  • Loading into vehicles

  • How to focus around any distraction. A common misconception is that once a dog has learned a new trick, they should know how to do it anywhere… unfortunately, it isn’t that easy. We teach focus as a skill.

  • Confidence; One of the main focal points of this course is confidence building. A large percent of the dogs we train are lacking confidence in many areas. This makes it difficult for dogs to focus, obey simple commands, and even enjoy activities with us.

During this life stage, it's crucial to expose puppies to various experiences to shape a well-rounded adult dog. All our puppy training employs positive reinforcement and food-based motivation. We utilize motivational strategies to cultivate a highly focused and eager puppy eager to please. Puppies will develop fundamental skills like sitting, lying down, responding to calls, maintaining focus, engaging in crate games, and participating in stimulating activities that keep their minds active. Our training also addresses typical puppy behaviors, including house and crate training, and addresses issues like jumping on people, biting, chewing, barking, and other behaviors that are most effectively addressed during this life stage.
