Puppy Training Services
While there is a two-week minimum, going three or more weeks is the best way to set up for success!
The first week is really an adjustment period for your young puppy. Not much extra basic training happens during this time as your puppy is learning how to be away from their siblings.
However, during this first week they do continue their crate training that started at the ranch and begin potty training.
Much more is accomplished after that initial week! Our Trainer will work on the following. Please note that some of these cues are time-dependent, as well as if the puppy is capable of learning a specific command at that age.
*Our trainers are not certified, but they are dedicated, loving pet parents themselves with lots of experience working with puppies and dogs!*

Facts & Info
We train using positive reinforcement. While we don’t use a clicker, we do rely on a marker word.
During your puppy’s extra stay, you will get frequent updates!
At the end, your trainer will go over everything your pup has learned with them. It is your job after that to keep up with these foundations! Reinforcement is key at this young age.
