I want to offer puppy training to select puppies wanting a more structured style training. This may also be for puppies interested in showing/competing in performance classes. My training is available to puppies 4 months or older.
Local puppies will come to me as often as possible but I suggest a minimum of two weeks. This consist of Monday-Friday 8am-5pm(flexible) for daily “Boot Camp” sessions. Each day the puppy will have 3-4 private training sessions, supervised socialization with other dogs for playtime, crate training and feeding lunch(if needed). More advanced puppies can be taken out for public interactions. Customized exposures to livestock, water or other request can be arranged.
What your puppy will learn in “Boot Camp” will vary based on how many sessions they spend with us & sometimes the breed of dog. Our goals for each puppy are the following:
I work on learning one thing at a time and as they progress I will add in another command. With this method each day is critical, the longer or more often they come the more they will learn. When I train your puppy I must also have a family commitment to practice at home. Together we can better ensure your puppy will have a successful outcome.
What is a Turn Key?
A turn key is a puppy that goes home to you fully trained in obedience, house trained, and much more. If you are leading a busy life and the thought of a chewing, peeing, pooping, whining, jumping puppy is just to daunting. Yet you can't live without the companionship a dog offers. A turnkey puppy is for you!
If your family does not have the time to dedicate to training a puppy during his/her first six months, a turnkey puppy is a great option. This time in a puppy's life is critical to instilling values and measure that will carry them through adulthood. Your investment covers the following:
• First you will be able to pick from the litter of your choice.
• Your puppy will be fully house-trained and crate-trained.
• Your puppy will be socialized in different situations and places.
• Your puppy will be obedience-trained.
• Name Recognition, Sit, Down, Come, Wait (exiting or entering), Stay, Heel on leash/leash etiquette, Sit when stop, Out (to release or drop item), Yes (reward), No (stop behavior), Crate & Potty, Leave it, Place & Off
You will receive a lifetime of support from trainer and breeder.
Your pet has either AKC breed registration papers, AKC PAL registration number or AKC Partners registration number. This allows you and your family to compete with your pet at any AKC sanctioned performance event. They are seasoned travelers and will ride quietly in your vehicle. If you cannot take your dog on your trip, he has experience at the kennel and will hang out there waiting for your return. Turnkey Dogs are well socialized with other dogs and are daycare. They have experience with children, cats, and upon request can be exposed to other animals. Your Turnkey Dog has wonderful manners and will be welcomed by your groomer and veterinarian. This is your opportunity to finally own the pet your kids have dreamed of and begged for, the pet you have pondered, yet felt was too much work. Turnkey Dogs takes the work and worry out of the equation by skillfully preparing your puppy to be the pet your kids will love and your neighbors will envy.
