It can be stressful, messy and sometimes painful when going through those early puppy growing stages! It is so important that we do right by our puppies in the most influential period of their lives. Did you know that most adult dogs that experience significant problems have had some kind of bad experience or lack of experience early on in life? Experiences from the time they are born until 16 weeks will last a lifetime and it is important that we get it right! Prevention and ensuring positive upbringing is key and we are here to do just that!

WHAT IS A PREMIER PUPPY?

A Premier Puppy is handpicked for your family, trained, well socialized, well adjusted, well mannered, confident, happy, and obedient pup that everyone will love to be around! A Premier Puppy will make an incredible addition to any home.

We have partnered with the best breeders around to make sure you are getting the highest quality dog possible(other breeds will be considered at request as long as we feel they are suitable for you and your family)! All puppies come from AKC registered bloodlines, and all parents fully OFA health certified for hips, eyes, elbows, and more. Health and temperament is the utmost importance to us when making the investment in your next companion. Genetics play a critical role in the temperament of your future puppy. We make sure all parents meet our expectations of acceptable temperament and have no history of any issues.

Please visit the Available Puppies tab to see what puppies we currently have available, or scroll down to start the process of reserving your future puppy!

*Rescues*- We occasionally enroll rescue pups into our program. We make sure they meet all of our temperament standards and qualifications during evaluation. 

PREMIER PUPPY PROGRAMS

NOVICE LEVEL PREMIER PUPPY

Your puppy will be given a massive head start on socialization and life skills right from the beginning at 7 -8 weeks of age! Did you know everything you do with your puppy before 16 weeks sticks with them for the rest of their life? We want to make sure we expose them to all the crazy things in life and show them our world is not so scary. They will also learn important life skills that will need to stick with them forever. This includes crate training, housebreaking, confidence building, problem solving, stress coping and on leash and off leash obedience. It is important we lay a very strong foundation for your puppy while they are young so it will last! Premier Puppies will learn all basic commands on and off leash, as well as some basic fun tricks! *We can not guarantee a reliable recall around distractions with this program*

Here is a list of commands you can expect your puppy to know at graduation:

Obedience Commands
  • Name Recognition– Learning their name.
  • Heel (Moving)- Walking on your left side with a loose leash with their head near your leg.
  • Heel (Standing Still)– Moves to your left side in sitting position.
  • Come- Come when you call, all the way to you.
  • Sit- Putting their hind end on the ground. The stay is implied until given a release word or a different command.
  • Down- Lay down on with elbows touching the ground. The stay is implied until given a release word or a different command.
  • Place- Go to a spot of different height or texture and stay there until released or given a different command (example, dog bed).
  • Off- Stop doing the behavior they are doing.
  • Out- Releasing a toy or bone.
  • Crate- Go into their crate.
  • Load up- Get into the car.
  • Let’s Go- Follow me, we are moving somewhere.
  • Yes- Marks a behavior that you liked that you will reward for.
  • Good- Marks a behavior you like that they should continue to do.
  • Nope- Marks a behavior you didn’t want and they should try again.
  • Break- They are all done doing what you asked (release word).
  • Various Tricks/Commands– We will teach your pup a few fun and exciting tricks to show all your friends! These will vary from puppy to puppy.

ALL PUPPIES WILL COME HOME WITH A TREAT POUCH, SLIP LEAD, FOOD

Two follow up lesson after your puppy goes home if needed
Owners will have access to our free support class held every Saturday for the rest of your puppy’s life.

PROGRAM PRICE: $4,300

  • Cost Of The Puppy Is NOT Included In This Price
  • Veterinary Bills Are Not Included In This Price And Are The Responsibility Of The Owner
  • If not within 50 miles, all travel expenses are the responsibility of the owner

ADVANCED LEVEL PREMIER PUPPY

This program is the exact same as the Novice Level with the added benefit of an off leash reliable dog once your puppy is of age.

Your puppy will learn everything as stated in the Novice Level and come home to you at 18 weeks.  Your puppy will then return to us at 8 months old for 2 more weeks to finish out their Advanced Off Leash training.

This is what we call “sealing the deal” where all the obedience will be proofed around distractions in all environments using the remote collar. The remote collar we use is E-collar Technologies and is the same sensation as a TENS Unit. Having your dog remote collar trained will ensure your dog will listen no matter the distraction and build a trust and bond with your dog like you have never had before! Think about it like having a cell phone for your dog!

After the two weeks is complete we will do another Go-Home lesson to teach you and the family everything they need to know about your dog’s new advanced training!

 PROGRAM PRICE: $6,500

Two follow ups after your puppy goes home at 18 weeks and then two more follow ups after 8 months if needed.

Owners will have access to our free support class held every Saturday for the rest of your puppy’s life.

  • Cost Of The Puppy Is NOT Included In This Price.
  • E-Collar Technologies Remote Collar will be provided for all Advanced Level Puppies.
  • Veterinary Bills Are Not Included In This Price And Are The Responsibility Of The Owner.
  • If not within 50 miles, travel expenses are the responsibility of the owner.

Agreement Of Commitment To Your Premier Puppy

Training is a lifelong commitment to your dog. The success of your puppy depends on the commitment of your follow through after graduation. We will make sure you and your family are very comfortable and understand everything to help your puppy be successful. We will give you all the tools necessary to make things clear and simple to make sure everything sticks long term.  We will ensure you one amazing dog but to reiterate, it is CRUCIAL that you are committed to continuing everything your puppy has learned! Don’t be that person who spends time and money on a training program to just let the training diminish once the puppy is home.
