Laying the Foundation:
Puppy Charm School Training : Level 1
This 2-week unit is our in-house puppy prep program, which lays the foundation for all training to build on. Without a solid foundation, training isn’t as successful. Many lifelong behavior problems in older dogs originated during this very formative phase of a puppy's life. Rest assure, your puppy is being handled professionally through the challenging phases and stages with loving guidance!
This program was designed for new puppy owners who want to ensure their puppy doesn’t miss any of the important aspects of proper handling of puppy developmental phases. Your puppy will be going through two fear phases during this time as well as other developmental phases, and they will be professionally managed to set puppy up for success. Your puppy will have a solid working foundation on crate/pen and potty training, leash work, alone time, and household manners.
Consistency and repetition at this level of puppy training is key to success. During these early weeks we establish the bond needed so puppy trusts and wants to 'work' for you! Introducing obedience training without the foundation of trust can burn out the puppy. We help puppy choose calm through our three powerful rituals!
Transitions - House, Pen & Crate training, transitioning to home life- this is the most crucial week for a puppy, and we never push them further than they are ready. Our Schedule for Success is a proven method that has been used for thousands of dogs successfully!
Continuing with the schedule, with the addition of socialization field trips in carriers and strollers for safety, leash work, house manners & Clicker Training Cues!
Week 3 & 4:
Over the course of these weeks, our trained puppy program emphasizes reinforcing new habits to help your puppies establish a consistent and dependable routine. Witness their skills steadily develop, evolving into more reliable behaviors. By the second week, you'll start noticing the initial results from these routines, but it's crucial to continue the program to prevent any potential setbacks. By the fourth week, these behaviors have solidified into reliable habits. Choosing to stay with us means your puppies receive professional guidance, ensuring a smoother transition at home as families adhere to our carefully crafted schedule and program.
Disclaimer: Puppies enrolled in a starter puppy program are in their early stages of life. Please note that they are not yet fully potty trained or classified as fully trained dogs. This program serves as a helpful head start, allowing you to assume the lead when your puppy becomes part of your home. However, it's important to understand that the ultimate success of your pup at home rests on your responsibility to maintain its schedule and routines with unwavering consistency.
