About The Service

Our puppy to adult program leverages the benefits of early training and socialization to create a well-rounded, confident adult dog. Training at a young age allows us to mitigate minor problematic behaviors before they become more significant issues in the later stages of life. Moreover, training allows for clear communication between dogs and owners, resulting in a stronger bond and more harmonic owner-dog relationship. By the end of this board and train program, your puppy will be socialized appropriately, on- and off-leash trained, and ready to take on the world at six months old.

Program Structure

  1. Puppy Stay (10 days). Between 3 and 5 months old, your puppy will live with our trainers for ten days to work on socialization, confidence building, crate and potty training, basic etiquette, and foundational obedience through food games. Your puppy will get exposure to new environments, people, and dogs while learning to enjoy the training process at a pace that matches its maturity level.
  2. Adult Stay (3 weeks). At six months old, your dog will return to us for a 3-week board and train stay, after which it will be entirely on- and off-leash trained. This portion of the program includes more formal obedience skills that we will regularly practice on field trips to expose your puppy to everyday scenarios.
  3. Graduation. After graduation, you can trust your trained puppy in nearly any situation. You will have access to unlimited support from our trainers as well as three free follow-up private training sessions to maintain and continue your dog's training.

What Your Dog Will Learn

After completing both portions of our puppy program, your dog will be capable of the following skills on- and off-leash:

  • Sit, down, and stay
  • Come when called
  • Heel
  • Bed stay
  • Crate and potty training
  • Manners with people and other dogs
  • Improved confidence in new environments

Who Is This Program For?

Our puppy to adult program is excellent for puppies between 12 weeks and six months whose owners want to get a headstart on training, develop a stronger bond with their puppy, and/or have noticed early signs of problematic behaviors.

Some common behaviors we regularly work with in our puppy program include potty training and crate training issues, pulling, jumping, barking, nipping, fear and anxiety, self-control issues, digging, selective hearing, overexcitement, and more. Early training allows us to prevent problematic puppy behaviors from escalating into greater issues.

Moreover, obedience training opens up a dog's world to a wide range of experiences that may otherwise not be possible, enjoyable or safe, such as hikes and public outings. Our team is committed to improve owner-dog quality of life and relationship by giving owners and their dogs the tools to clearly communicate and live a fuller life.
