Everyone seems to have an opinion when it comes to training your new puppy. With so much information out there, it can be overwhelming to know what to do. That's why our puppy training retreat is such a great option for puppies between twelve and eighteen weeks old. Studies have shown that there is a critical window between ten and twenty weeks where socialization, confidence, and learned habits can be formed. By enrolling your puppy in our course, you can rest assured that you're giving them the best start possible. It's important to remember that every dog is different, and what works for one breed may not work for another. For example, while some dogs love meeting new people, others may feel nervous or anxious. That's why our training program is tailored to the individual needs of each puppy, to ensure they feel safe, confident, and happy.

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.

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

In this program, your puppy will spend approximately one week with us at around twelve weeks of age (considered Part 1 of their training). Following this initial week, your puppy will return home until reaching the age of five to six months. At that point, they will come back for an extended stay of 18 days (considered Part 2 of the training). Following each of these board and train sessions, we will conduct a comprehensive transition lesson with you. During this session, we will thoroughly review the training activities and experiences your puppy underwent and provide guidance on how to proceed with their training moving forward.

During the initial training week (Part 1), 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

  • and More

What we will teach (Part 2) of training:

  • Sit

  • Down

  • Stay

  • Heel (walk next to your left side with loose leash and off-leash)

  • Come Command (the most important exercise all dogs should know)

  • Bed Command (Go to your bed, lay down and stay. We use this a lot when we are cooking/eating meals and when guests come over… your guests will be amazed!!)

  • Proper etiquette for greeting people

  • Waiting at doors

  • Crate Training (making the dog comfortable in a crate)

  • 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.

 

This course includes everything you will need to continue the training with your dog:

  • Graduation Transition Lesson – This is where we show you what we did and how to continue it!

  • Life-time Support – Our company is one of the oldest, full-time dog training companies in Florida. Over 5,000 dogs trained and counting!

  • E-collar, slip leash and elevated training bed
